WELCOME TO THE TALENT STOP
We are a part time Performing Arts Academy in Berkshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire with classes in Earley, Sandhurst, Sonning Common, Thatcham and Tilehurst. We offer a range of performing arts classes in acting, singing and dancing. Our acting classes cover techniques for stage and TV. Our singing classes cover tuning, breathing, rhythm and interpretation for musical theatre and pop. Our dance classes are in Ballet, Tap, Modern-Jazz, Lyrical and Hip Hop ‘n’ Street. All our classes are designed to provide constructive, creative, fun activities for children and teenagers helping them develop communication skills and self confidence.
The acting courses, singing courses and dance courses are popular with children who are genuinely interested in pursuing a career in the Performing Arts and equally popular with children who like to try new things, make new friends and love to be active. Prospective students are not auditioned and need have no previous experience, just requiring plenty of energy and enthusiasm!
What Makes Us Different?
- Firstly we recognise the need for strong classical dance training. So students can also attend the Sapphire School of Dance, which includes classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern-Jazz and Lyrical.
- Secondly we price our courses realistically yet affordably without cutting the quality of our tuition. See our Course page for our prices and promotional discount offers.
- Thirdly we never forget the main reason students join, which is to enjoy themselves! Part of The Talent Stop experience means we put on a spectacular performance every year and bring in guest workshops in exciting areas like TV Presenting, Stage Fighting and Stage Make-Up.
