Young Drum starts this Saturday!

January 8th, 2015 2:33 pm

Young Drum had an awesome few months in the autumn. From hosting weekly sessions and end of term sharings to delivering summer school activity for Perry Beeches Academies, taking part in Black History Month and Afrovibes and attending a week-long arts and heritage residential at Ingestre Hall in the October half-term.  It was a busy but brilliant time and now we’re back, with our Dance & Drama Sessions starting this Saturday, from 12pm!

Drama & Dance Sessions on Saturdays, inc. Bugsy Malone, 12-4.30pm term-time

Every term we engage 60+ children and young people in drama and street dance sessions. Take part in beginners and advanced drama and dance sessions and join our Bugsy Malone production which will be followed by creating a devised performance. If you have mad crazy dance skills you may like to audition for Dance Elite and showcase your talents across the city.
