WELCOME TO THE TALENT STOP
The Talent Stop Performing Arts Academy in Berkshire runs dance, singing and acting classes in Sonning Common, Thatcham and Tilehurst for children aged 2+1/2-16yrs helping the shy ones develop self-confidence and the loud ones channel their creative energies with discipline!
We teach ballet, tap, modern-jazz, lyrical, street dance, acting and singing with all our classes designed to provide constructive, creative and fun activities
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.
