It's the birthday of Alexander Hamilton today, so here's a quote from Lin-Manuel Miranda- the creator of the hip hop musical Hamilton!
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
We love this quote by the amazing Duke Ellington. Never quit!! Tag a friend who might need to hear this quote today.
At Theatretrain we make it easy for your child to feel like a performer, because we let them BE a performer every week at our centres and also on some of the UK's most prestigious stages! We don't ask for any previous experience and we don't audition. Everyone is welcome because the performing arts are for everyone.
Let your child enjoy the things they love like singing, acting and dancing! Our teachers are here to encourage and guide them in a company of performers, and they'll not only learn some great new skills, but have fun along the way and make new friends.
We've been off grid this week due to half term madness but don't forget to dress up in a spooky outfit for tomorrow's sessions.
Here's a throw back to my favourite TT Southampton Halloween when we performed at @national_motor_museum fireworks 🎆
We're back on! College is back open and our classes have resumed!
We've just sent out an email! Please let us know tomorrow morning if you haven't received it! 😊
Let your child experience the freedom of expressing themselves!
One of the most life-affirming things we can do is to throw ourselves into something we enjoy doing, without the fear of failure. To embrace what we love doing, and to do it, is a wonderful, empowering feeling which is at the heart of everything we do at Theatretrain.
If your child enjoys dancing, just let them dance! Experience is not necessary to join Theatretrain. We don't ask students to audition. Our teachers encourage young performers to express themselves in a company of performers, so they not only learn some great new skills, but have fun along the way and make new friends.
Let your child be free! Let them express themselves!
On our blog today Kevin talks about his guilty pleasure of watching Discovering Film on Sky Arts, and gaining an insight into the work and lives of some of the world's most famous actors.
"Sometimes the critics can pinpoint exactly what it is about someone’s character or voice or look that makes them interesting as an actor. So often you discover that an actor had a difficult childhood, and it was partly that that made them prove themselves to the world."

We encourage all our students today to be confident. Like the great Franklin says, “Be your own artist, and always be confident in what you’re doing”.
Let your child experience the freedom of performing!
Experience is not necessary to join Theatretrain. We don't ask students to audition. If your child needs a space where they can express themselves and be encouraged to sing, dance and act – Theatretrain is the place to be! Let your child celebrate their talents and enjoy the freedom.
Our teachers encourage young performers to express themselves in a company of performers, so they not only learn some great new skills, but have fun along the way and make new friends.
Let your child be free! If they want to sing… let them sing!
On our blog today Kevin reflects on his recent visit to the circus, and the tradition of bringing performances to the people.
"I’d forgotten the wonder of the circus, the look and smell, the up-closeness, and the sheer spectacle of it... you come away enlivened, your spirits in a better place because for 90 minutes or so you are transported to a place of what-will-happen-next?"

We love this quote from Michelle Obama, who went on to say, "…when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don't invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”
That's the kind of positive confidence we want to inspire in all our students!

We celebrate Black History Month and we salute LeBron James who wisely said, "Black History Month is all 12 months for me. We celebrate Black excellence every single day, every single day of the year."
This new campaign for Black History Month 2021 invites Black and Brown people around the UK to share what they are Proud To Be. What are you proud to be? Let us know in the comments below.
On our blog this week reflects on the 1970s production of Pippin, and the lessons it teaches us today.
"All that 70s music and choreography (originally by Bob Fosse) may seem a bit nostalgic and innocent to some, but I think it still expresses how we feel – exuberant, passionate or hateful. Life today may move more quickly and seemingly sophisticated, but these 50-year-old musicals still have something to say."

We’ve been open in Southampton for over 6 years offering weekly training sessions in dance, drama and singing and providing unique performance opportunities.
Southampton have performed at many prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall and the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. We have also travelled to perform at Disneyland Paris and have built a strong relationship with another performing arts school in Malta with whom we have taken part in two exchanges now.
At Theatretrain our focus is on CREATING Theatre rather than just teaching you steps and songs. Come and be inspired to create your own characters and learn the crucial stagecraft skills necessary for a career in the industry (and at the same time have LOTS of fun!)
