Echo offers holiday clubs for your child to come and enjoy The Arts. We believe that learning to work with others, team building and learning new skills are vital to allow your child to flourish and develop in confidence.
Our workshops include dance, drama and music lessons, working towards a short performance. This could be based on a theme or a showcase of your child and their friends efforts over the days they have spent with us.
February Half Term Workshop
This half term we will be offering online workshops over 3 days from 10am until 12pm with a mixture of activities on offer.
The programme for the workshops is as follows:
Monday– Dance and Drama using the Theme of Shrek the Musical. With lots of games and activities to break up our workshop. The two hours will fly by.
Wednesday– Alice in Wonderland Dance, creating our own scene and, costume with masks and a mad hatter hat to design and paint, this is our own to really get those creative juices flowing! The winning designs of the mad hatter hat will go into a prize draw! (The masks and the mad hatter hat is provided by Echo and included in the price)
Please note, there are only 12 mad hatter hats available (5 of these have possibly been taken already) please make sure you book on quickly to avoid disappointment. Also it is only ONE activity pack per household, but there are a few extra activities if more than one child is taking part.
Thursday– Musical Theatre in the theme of Hairspray and Matilda. The children will learn dance routines from Hannah and take part in Drama activities, including recreating part of the Matilda script.

October Half Term
Our Play in a Day included workshops for both dance and drama. Throughout the day the children will take part in different activities to help develop techniques and performance skills.
Our end performance was filmed and put on YouTube for parents and children to enjoy when they got home.
Summer Holiday Workshop
Our summer workshop was a huge success. We wanted to give the students an opportunity they may never have had before or may never have again. We created a performance on day one, refined and filmed it on day two and then presented the work to students and parents at a local Cinema. The children really enjoyed watching themselves on the big screen.
Our students looked at how theatres were buzzing and full of life and then sadly had to close doors. The children reflected on the breaking news of our country going into lockdown and what their families did during this time. We decided to show that, with this new normal, The Arts can adapt and continue and still bring people together to be creative and have fun!
Our Play in a Day
Take a look at our February workshop where we had 50 children taking part. The day was a great success, we hope you enjoy our short snippet below.
