Our specialist musical theatre classes held at the art of dance & fitness in Bognor Regis. The groups are split into 3 levels of ability.
TEAM: Ages 6 and above. High energy, a fun class exploring all genres of musical theatre. Our aim is to build confidence and encourage creativity working within a friendly and supportive team.
TROUPE: Acceptance into TROUPE is by audition only. Many students progress into TROUPE having started their training in TEAM. The standard of this class is very high where students excel in acting, dance, and singing. We encourage ‘triple threat performers’ working at a high level of technique and performance.
ELITE: Our new class starting this September! Acceptance into the ELITE is by audition only. An advanced class designed for students who perform at an exceptionally high standard whose ambition is to gain acceptance into the top leading drama/dance schools and to follow a career in the industry. An excellent level of commitment, dedication and motivation are required at all times. Our emphasis is on professional development for the individual. Throughout these classes, we encourage solo presentation work, with a focus on developing a portfolio of audition material.
Laura's lessons are always fun and she gives honest feedback so I know how to improve every week. I love Shine Time and LAMDA so much.
Laura has worked miracles with Olivia. She has gone from a child who would not speak in front of a class to now performing solo LAMDA pieces at festivals, gaining trophies! Laura has instilled so much confidence in her, and Liv always looks forward to her lessons with Laura.
Laura has a unique talent to enable each child to find their own voice in each monologue and song. Thank you Laura!! The children have performed in summer schools, showcases, festivals and performances and had enormous fun - and a few trophies on the way! These experiences have built their confidence in themselves and Laura has enabled them to shine!!
I did LAMDA acting grades with Laura, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to everyone!! She is funny, patient, kind and excels in inspiring us to do our best. Teaching comes so naturally to her. The Shine Time showcases have always been a highlight as well, and they made me excited for the speeches to come. Laura has been wonderful to me and my family, and I am so grateful to her!
All three of my children have enjoyed LAMDA lessons with Laura, having signed up 8 years ago! She has drawn out the actor in them all and inspired and encouraged them to reach their full potentials, and thanks to her they have gained almost all distinctions! In fact, one of my children was awarded 100% in his Grade 8 solo acting at 13!
I had never done any acting until I started LAMDA lessons with Laura when I was 7. I found memorising the speeches really hard at first but Laura had a way of helping me believe in myself and give it a good go. So despite having dyslexia, I’ve finished the LAMDA solo acting exams and am taking the musical theatre and Shakespeare exams and am considering acting as a profession! Thank you, Laura, for seeing something in me that I didn’t know was there!
I love my drama and musical theatre lessons with Laura. Even though I have dyspraxia and find the theory really hard she gives me plenty of time to learn everything and makes it fun! Thank you Laura!
Seeing Joseph progress over time with Shine Time's guidance is a delight to watch. We've watched him mature as an actor, singer and overall performer. Since starting he's been in recording workshops, stage shows, festivals and LAMDA exams. it is an opportunity of a life time that anyone would benefit from.
Ever since starting Shine Time my confidence, success and skills have skyrocketed. Shine Time has allowed me to achieve 4 Distinctions and counting. The family atmosphere is incredible, you'll never find a place like it. Thank you for everything.
I was in the Railway Children, London West End for three months and it was an amazing experience. I have also done a couple of short films which were really good fun.
Both of my children have been at Shine Time for several years and do Musical Theatre and Private LAMDA and singing classes. They both love it and their confidence has grown so much. Shine Time has given them so many amazing opportunities.
