Blast Off to a Wonderful World of Performance Fun with Apollo Kidz

New for 2018, professional repertory theatre company Apollo Arts has just launched specialised training in singing and drama specifically designed for children... APOLLO KIDZ!

Husband and wife team Pauline Carville and Robin Elliott are passionate about developing a child-centred branch of their hugely successful venture Apollo Arts and the uniquely structured lessons will be taken in small groups of no more than eight children to give each child personal attention, and plenty of opportunity to practise, so that every student is able to develop quickly and excel personally at the same time, making it a cost-effective option for parents.

Classes are available in singing and/or drama, focusing on fun through education and are specially tailored to accommodate each child. Lessons take place after school hours on a weekday and within the academic term.

Apollo Kidz encourage self-belief in children and young people through their outstanding, specialist tuition which will ignite your child’s curiosity and help them find their true voice to pursue a career on the stage or develop strong self-confidence, communication and creativity skills to assist in all areas of their life.

Children will be inspired in fun, but structured lessons, which focus on enhancing team building and performing abilities, taught by highly-qualified tutors who are passionate about teaching singing and drama to children. All teachers are trained in our tried and tested methods of teaching both disciplines specifically designed for children by specialist vocal and performance coach Pauline Carville.

A singing/ performance specialist for over 20 years, trained actor Pauline Carville (PGDipRAM & BARCS) graduated as a singer/singing teacher from the very prestigious Royal Academy of Music under the mentorship of the renowned Mary Hammond. Her highly successful CV includes working with numerous high-calibre West End musical directors and her acting credits include an Olivier award-winning production, West End concerts and Off Broadway Concerts in NYC. Pauline also taught singing and acting at Redroofs Theatre School, London where she trained many young performers including BBC’s Danielle Harmer (Tracey Beaker) and several of the cast from the Harry Potter movies.

In this exciting environment of Apollo Arts’ brand new premises, Apollo Kidz will have their own studio theatre “Apollo Arts Theatre” so that all pupils will have the opportunity to perform their work in front of an audience as well as scheduled holiday theatre weeks at Easter, summer and Halloween producing shows that the children love including Oliver, High School Musical or one of the Disney Classics.

Lessons times available commencing Wednesday 31 January and Thursday 1 February 2018. All usual terms are for 10 weeks excluding the January first term which is 8 weeks for early Easter break. Lesson fees from £8 per session depending on age group. Pupil pack includes a free Apollo Kidz uniform T-shirt.

Apollo Kids are offering one free trial lesson per child on Wednesday 24 or Thursday 25 January when you mention Ni4kids! Contact Pauline at Tel: 028 9543 4474 Email or visit
