SATURDAY CLASSES

A weekly 3-hour session for ages 6-18yrs in Bracknell and Dunstable.

Students partake in 3 x 55-minute lessons, usually split by age group, focussing on one discipline per session - Singing, Dancing and Acting, with a 10-15 min break between sessions 2 & 3. During rehearsals and nearer to performance, or if the show in rehearsal demands it, classes are mixed and more flexible in structure, in order to achieve the optimum standard and experience of production and theatre prior to the performance, as it is in the profession.

*Last minute staff changes can be inevitable but ALL staff are fully DBS checked and experienced/qualified in line with the Academy's employment ethos.

There is a lovely caring, family atmosphere and the kids get on so well together. Staff are fantastic and really bring out the best in each child. My daughter absolutely loves HOT and we would thoroughly recommend them.

Hayley and the team are like one big family with all students involved. My son initially won a free term when he started and has since loved every minute. Even through lockdown HOT has provided a safe space with online rehearsals so that all the kids can still be a part of something special. Thank you for everything you do!
