What families are saying

November 2018
Sanj Jandu
Attended with a 3-year-old
Fun, different kind of group that I take my son too. He’s got cp but is cognitively able so wanted to find a group that’s not too physical and would push his strengths. I also wanted something that would get him to be abit more confident in public (chatterbox at home but quiet in a big group) and thought this group would be perfect. Jude says he is opening up a little more every week and she’s been great at making the class very inclusive for him, as have the other kids made him feel very welcome! Thank you so much for making my little boy feel part of it all.

A lovely group with such a clever series of activities to draw out ideas from the children. Builds confidence and feeds the imagination.

Meet the Team

Beth Symons
Head of Brighton/Hove

Beth has a BA Hons in Acting for Stage & Media at London College of Music, she specialises in Comedy and Musical Theatre and has been lucky enough to perform all over the world from Camden to Cairo. Teaching has always complimented Beth’s Acting career - she comes from a family of teachers and has taught 2.5 - 21 year olds drama, dance, singing and everything in between for the past 5 years. The ‘teaching bug’ is very similar to the ‘performing bug’ and Beth certainly has both and she enjoys nothing more than seeing her students confidence grow and their personalities blossom.
