Talking Props offer professional and affordable training to children and young adults from the ages of three to eighteen. Classes take place in our very own fully equipped studios with experienced tutors and industry professionals. We work with a variety of students, from those looking to pursue a professional career in the entertainment industry to those simply looking to have fun and build confidence. We also have adult classes, we are an inclusive school so rather than have designated SEND classes for students with additional needs, we try our best to integrate everyone into the same class.
We pride ourselves on our teaching approach and variety of classes, we are the only stage school in Wyre Forest who guarantee a full scale musical at the end of each year, we also compete in Dance and Arts competitions and perform throughout the year in show cases and public events. Studio owner Michael is an actor and director who still works actively within the industry. Michael has a Masters Degree in Acting from Guildford School of Acting.
Students are able to choose from a variety of classes in Musical Theatre, Dance, Acting or Singing. We like to think we are affordable for the family pocket and try our best to offer a variety of packages.
Students are taught in a safe and secure environment from our purpose built studios, complete with mirrors, air conditioning, ballet barres, crash mats, PA systems and tumbling runs. We also have a cupboard with a variety of costumes and props for classes and show cases.
We frequently offer guest workshops were theatre and television professionals come into the studio to teach a class, these can be actors, choreographers and directors from the industry.
We offer a secure environment for children and young adults to gain confidence and have fun, not to mention form long and lasting friendships, learn discipline and respect, discover themselves and just how much they are capable of.
