The Performance Centres is the umbrella that encompasses our Stage School - The Stage Centre and our Dance School - The Dance Centre. Established since 2008 as a company we now train over 250 Children and Adults a week.
Within our Centres, we create a vibrant and unique community for theatrical excellence with a strong focus on Performance and Training covering the three disciplines of: Drama, Singing & Dance.
From bespoke pre-school dance and theatre programmes to higher training preparation and Adult courses, our Centres cater for every step in a performing arts journey.
We are blessed with a stunning team of dedicated professionals. All of whom are currently or have worked in the performance industry, from dancers, choreographers, directors, musical directors and vocal tutors. Our team work exceptionally hard at guiding and evolving a young person’s skills and understanding. Producing beautiful and spectacular annual productions in professional theatres. Our team is headed by our Artistic and Creative Director and owner Christina Michelle Richards - A professional musical theatre performer Christina left the London stage and returned to Cardiff 8 years ago to set up the Centres.
Our work goes beyond the walls of our Studios, and has flowed over in to Schools. Currently we run After School Clubs in the Vale and have worked within the school day on highly successful, bespoke Literacy through Dance projects. The company is driven by a strong belief in the power of the Arts not only recreationally but within education for the development of the individual child and their progress in engagement, access, understanding, self-confidence and self belief across their educational journey.
Our focus at all times within our Centres is the 'family' that we create to enable young performers and dancers to learn, develop and thrive. We are an independent company whose purpose is to create independent and brave young performers and dancers on stage and in life.
We aim to shape the ‘all round performer’ and instil an understanding and appreciation of the self-discipline and focus that is required to work successfully in the arts and to teach and enhance the valuable life skills that every young person gains through Performance.
