Time to Shine! Too Much, Too Soon?
Every parent wants their children to shine.
And this is the time to sign up !
Nurturing young talent and building up a child’s confidence and self-esteem is a big part of after school activities.
Liverpool excels in this department! However, with the vast range on offer, it becomes tempting to sign up to a lot more than you need to and finances alone can make this impossible especially when there are several family members.
This is the time of year for you to decide and sign up to one or more of the massive range of activities available.
Consider what’s on the menu for your children and if your offspring are mini Mozart’s, fitness fanatics, masterminds, or mini Thespians, there is something for every kind.
There’s an activity to suit them right out there, so check online to see what’s near you. From archery to zoology, you’ll find something they love.
These clubs and classes offer your child a chance to mix with children from other schools and areas; take part in artistic, musical and sporting activities not offered at school; teamwork skills; confidence; and the ability to develop persistence and patience.
Tread Acting School at the Epstein Theatre has now launched an exciting school where rising stars get the chance to train with West End performers and TV actors. This new academy for 11-18 year olds is on every Saturday 10am-12.30 http://www.treadproductions.net (07739289995)
After a successful appearance on BBC’s Dragons’ Den in January, Razzamataz Theatre School is now established at The Belvedere Academy, mixing commercial street dance and musical theatre so the children get the very best of what performing arts has to offer.
Liverpool’s arts are certainly enriched. We have the MDI dance initiatives, Bluebell Studios, Stagecoach, O’Grady and LIPA stage schools to name a few.
Resonate Music School still leads the field in instrumentation with Hope and LJMU developing sporting skills. If sports are not to your taste then, new on the scene for the young mastermind who is 5-14 years old, we have the, Explore Learning, an Educational Awards Winner open 7 days a week with free trials to develop maths and English in an environment that children enjoy.
The choice is out there, from budding zoologist courses at Knowsley Safari Park to swimming, dragon boat racing, netball, hockey and football coaching sessions every week at our major sporting venues.
The choice has never been better.
These are exciting times with new ways to challenge, inspire and enrich your children, so sign up to one of these engaging arts programmes and give your child that extra start and a skill for life.
