In the summer of 2016, we were delighted when out of all the children's theatre schools in Oxfordshire, WOAPA was selected by a film production company to provide some dancers for a special film project aimed at pre-school children.
Thirty students aged between 4 and 9yrs danced in the 'Reach For The Stars' film on the day. WOAPA's Principal Director, Brian Conroy, said:
"We often have casting directors contact us to involve our students in various projects, on stage & film, but this one was rather special as we were able to involve our very youngest students who are often too young for many roles. It was wonderful to be able to offer them this experience and get them involved at an early age. It's one of the things which makes us stand out from other children's theatre schools in the area. The children performed really well and were a credit to our theatre school in Witney".
The end result is a fantastic childrens music video, featuring animation, Puppetry and WOAPA students dancing. See below!
(WOAPA's classes start at age 4yrs with their 'Young Performers' sessions for children aged 4-6yrs.
Other age groups include 'ACT 1' for 7-9yrs, 'ACT 2' for 10-12yrs and 'ACT 3' for 13-16yrs.
WOAPA also has a dance - drama - singing class for children with learning disabilities called 'WOAPA Too!).
Singing: Dance: Drama - and loads of fun for children aged 4 -16yrs.
PLEASE NOTE - we do not charge for taster sessions in our classes.
At WOAPA, we teach Oxfordshire children how to sing, dance and act with confidence. Skills learned with us are not just for the stage, but students benefit throughout every aspect of their lives.
We assist children to pursue their dreams of a career on stage in the performing arts - but more importantly, children regularly attend our singing, drama and dance classes each week because they have lots of fun!
Since 2011, West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts has been developing an impressive track record of delivering good quality drama classes, singing classes & dance classes in Witney, attracting students from all across Oxfordshire* (and neighbouring counties) to attend.
