Performance And Potential: Exploring Hayward’s Summer School Programmes

As the summer sun glows warmly overhead, we’re thrilled to share the exciting news: Summer School 2023 at Hayward Performing Arts is just around the corner. This is the perfect opportunity for young artists aged between 5 and 16 years to delve into the captivating world of theatre and dance. Let’s find out more!

Summer School 2023 – The Magic of the Musicals

From August 7th to 10th, we’ll conduct a series of enjoyable classes and workshops based on the theme ‘The Magic of The Musicals’. Participants will have the chance to design their own costumes, create unique props, learn enchanting dances, and sing along to the heart-touching melodies that define musical theatre.

This week-long experience will conclude with a spectacular performance encapsulating everything we’ve learned, followed by a celebration party. Whether you wish to be in the spotlight or cheer from the audience, we’re creating a space for everyone to enjoy.

The summer school runs daily from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and participants are free to attend either for a single day or for the full week. Just remember to bring a packed lunch, and we’ll provide free water and pieces of fruit.

We have two groups structured based on age:

  • Juniors: 4-11 years
  • Seniors: 12-16 years

And don’t forget to wear your comfortable tracksuit, t-shirt, and clean trainers. If you own dance shoes, make sure to bring them along!
