Schools

Tread The Boards can provide your school with competitively priced bespoke workshops to enhance curriculum subjects including Music,  Literacy, History, Science and Citizenship. We can tailor sessions to your needs, budget and timetable and are happy to discuss longer projects.

Recent feedback from Huntington Primary Academy, York:

We worked with Tread The Boards on a Shakespeare week project. All of our children from Early Years to Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed the workshops that were tailored for the Shakespeare play or sonnet that each year group were studying. Our younger children learned dance and movement with professional practitioners and older children worked on speeches and staging Shakespeare’s work. The practitioners from Tread the Boards were engaging, professional and motivational with our children. Each class were excited and learned Shakespeare in an interesting and different approach. We would certainly recommend Alison and her fantastic team and look forward to working with Tread the Boards in the future.

Examples of what we provide:

  • Beginning Storytelling
  • Drama Clubs: after school or lunchtime sessions
  • Creative Writing and Performance Skills: workshops range from a one-off hour to a term’s worth of weekly sessions leading up to a performance in assembly
  • Preschool drama, song and movement sessions
  • Folk singing workshop
  • Making theatre from art
  • Dance workshops: any style from Strictly to Street!
  • Physical Theatre
  • An introduction to Shakespeare
  • Anti-bullying workshop
  • Shadow puppet workshop
  • Group songwriting
  • Short play writing courses for adult beginners/Keystage 3 and upwards

Festivals

If you’re looking for something a bit different for your festival, Tread The Boards can provide bespoke workshop and activity packages to suit your theme, budget and needs. These can be tailored to a theme of your choice, and can end with a showcase performance. Themes delivered previously include Street Dance Academy, Pirates, Fame!, Physical Theatre, Family folk singing and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We specialise in providing fun, challenging activity programmes for the ‘in-between’ 11-16 age group, but most of our workshops can be accessed by all ages. We are experienced, qualified, DBS checked and known for our high-energy style of teaching and performance. Comments from previous festivals include:

We love the wonderful family atmosphere you bring to the festival! And you are GREAT performers”

“What a great time and what a great team”
