When school is out for summer, children rightly want to have fun. After the stress of SATs, end of term tests and GCSEs, students are looking for a chance to unwind and enjoy themselves.
For parents, especially those that are working, trying to find fun and reasonably priced ways to keep kids entertained over the long summer holiday is a must.
Throughout the UK, Razzamataz Theatre Schools are offering fun and affordable summer schools where youngsters get to experience everything from street dance through to pop singing and traditional West End musical theatre.
Performing arts is a natural way for children to learn while they are having fun. Without them realising it, they are learning enhanced communication skills, developing their imaginations and improving their physicality.
There are almost 50 part-time Razzamataz schools up and down the country and there are a range of summer schools taking place for youngsters between the ages of 4 to 16.
Denise Hutton-Gosney, MD and Founder of Razzamataz, explains:
"The performing arts is lovely way for children to improve their confidence, make new friends and have lots of fun. Regardless of if they have had any performing arts training before, they will find that the summer schools offer something for everyone and can either inspire a love of the performing arts or improve the skills from those who have previous experience.
There are lots of different themes going on within the schools, anything from Grease through to School of Rock. The teachers and children will devise the scripts, work on the characters, learn songs and dances and prepare for the final day performance in front of family and friends. It is amazing what they achieve in just one week. The audience is always flabbergasted and it proves just what can be accomplished when children are engaged and having fun."
For parents, finding options for children during the summer is also challenging which is why Razzamataz is incredibly proud to be one of the fastest growing and most affordable theatre schools in the UK, having shot to prominence after an appearance on BBC’s Dragons’ Den in 2007.
"The performing arts is incredibly beneficial to help young people build up positive communication skills that will enhance every area of their lives at home, school and beyond."

The support from Head Office is fantastic and they are always there to listen and to guide you through. You are getting advertising/marketing ideas, contacts and systems provided for you that you may not have if you were to open an independent school.Amy Latchman, Razzamataz Rickmansworth.
It was 10 years ago that I left hairdressing and for anyone thinking that it is too late to change their careers I would say step out of your comfort zone and just do it. I never thought I would be able to and it’s the best thing I have done and wished I’d done it years ago!Pam Dixon, Razzamataz Dumfries
I specifically wanted to go for a franchise, and in particular Razzamataz because of the support from Head Office and other Principals. This is a network of theatre school owners so you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.Alison Beveridge, Razzamataz Durham.
