Showshack Dance School and Theatre School is based in Farnham, Surrey. It is a vibrant organisation that offers local children a supportive, enthusiastic and creative environment for their development in the performing arts.
We aim to bring the experience and influences of our professional staff to our students, encouraging their skills in the Performing Arts, nurturing and refining their singular talents and developing their confidence and self-esteem as individuals.
Showshack offers Theatre Schools on a Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and afternoon. Weekday Dance classes include Modern Dance, Tap Dance, Street Dance and Ballet. Private LAMDA Drama and Singing lessons are also available. Full vocational training can be obtained from leading institutions including The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). Some classes can lead to the Governments accredited Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) providing points equivalent to GCSEs and A Levels.
