Pop School UK

After School SessionsHere at Pop School UK we are passionate about our pupils becoming confident singers, dancers and performers. It goes without saying many of the pop stars we see today are amazing vocally and fantastic dancers and Pop School UK offers pupils their first steps on the way to stardom.

We believe that not all children today who wish to get involved in performing don’t necessarily want to do drama or musical theatre, but aspire to be like their pop idols, so our sessions focus on 3 key elements – Singing, Dancing and Performing using a combination of Pop Music and Contemporary Dance.

Pop Vocals!

90 Minute LessonsBegin with ‘fun’ warm-ups and include a range of vocal techniques from breathing, pitching, harmony, rhythm, projection, confidence building and working as part of a team!

Pop Dance!

Begin with technical warm-ups and use a variety of contemporary / commercial styles from Funky, Hip Hop, Street... Great Routines!... Great Exercise!... Great Fun!

Pop Performance!

£10 eachCombining vocals and dance, just like pop stars themselves!

Pop Music!

Pop Music or Popular Music spans many decades so Pop School UK has a wide range of repertoire from which to use. Lets not forget that ‘Rock n Roll’ is popular music so pupils can learn songs from Elvis, Abba, Michael Jackson, Queen, Bee-Gee’s right up to present day with Lady Ga Ga, Take That, Katy Perry and J-J-Jessie Jay to name but a few!

Free Trial Session!

Pop School UK offers your child to attend a free trial session at their school!

Showcase Your Talent!

Free Trial SessionEach term will end with a performance of all the repertoire learnt and offers pupils the opportunity to perform a solo piece if they wish or a small group piece with their friends! Each academic year will culminate with a Summer Showcase bringing together all that has been learnt over the year!

I look forward to seeing you soon at one of our free trial sessions!
