Summer Performing Arts schools 2021 Helps Working Parents Keep the Kids Entertained Over Summer

The long summer holidays can be a nightmare for working parents, but supportive resources such as are lending a helping hand this year. Completely free to use for the general public, parents can browse through masses of local workshops and summer schools in their area suitable for children and teens of all ages.

Holiday workshops are a great way to entertain the kids over the summer break, which often feels drawn out for children and their parents. Performing arts summer schools can last for up to 2 weeks, and are extremely rewarding and worthwhile activities for younger children who get easily bored and older kids who struggle to get out of bed in the morning. Whether a child has developed a love for drama or dance, or even if they have never taken part in performing arts classes before, is the ultimate website for finding holiday activities across the nation.

Ms Beaumont, drama educationalist and founder of  both and said, “A holiday drama workshop, dance workshop or summer school is a great way to boost your child's confidence, increase their life skills and learn new disciplines. By using our simple search facility, families can explore the site together and find a suitable performing arts holiday club that the child will enjoy and grow from.”

Most drama, dance or musical theatre summer schools culminate in a performance at the end of the week which family and friends are welcome to go and watch; this gives the children something to work towards and a sense of accomplishment when the workshop or course is over. This is one of the reasons why partaking in a performing arts holiday club is more beneficial for children than attending a playgroup or using a childminder service.

The extensive summer holiday period is the ideal time for children and teenagers to try a new discipline such as acting, dancing or singing. Many summer schools give the option of learning all three skills, and they give children the opportunity of finding a new hobby or favourite subject in which they will strive for further progress.

“Finding activities for children can be tough on parents over the 6 weeks holidays, but we can help,” added Ms Beaumont. “Whether your child is a keen performer already or is quite shy and never tried drama or dance, taking part in a holiday workshop will ensure children have fun and increase their social skills and self-confidence.”
