Due to Covid19 we have moved to a temporary venue; Thurlow Village Hall.

Mayes School of Performing Arts offer weekly lessons in Singing, Acting and Dancing for 7-18 year olds.

The two hour session will take place on a Monday evening from 6:00pm until 8:00pm at Castle Manor Academy, in Haverhill. Students will take part in some acting, singing and dancing throughout the session. Towards the end of the session, both groups will come together to showcase what has been learnt throughout the evening- we feel that showcasing at the end of each session is really important, and by performing to each other, the students are building confidence, whilst also having the opportunity to reflect on other’s work.

Your child will be placed into a group based on their age, but these groups are interchangeable, and we will move students around based on their ability once we have worked with them for a few weeks.

Our lessons will take place in the Drama Studio of Castle Manor, along with a smaller room next to the studio. We ask that all students arrive at the drama studio from 5:45pm, ready to promptly start at 6:00pm.

To secure your child’s place at Mayes School of Performing Arts, please contact us via email, phone or social media. If the class is full, your child will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when a place becomes available.


Students will need to wear black shorts, leggings, tracksuit bottoms or training trousers, with a ‘Mayes School of Performing Arts’ t-shirt. This can be ordered through us via email, or in person at a session. We advise that students wear jazz shoes for sessions, but comfortable trainers or plimsolls will also suffice.
