Theatre Street Performing Arts was founded in 2001 by former dancer and choreographer Claire Pourret as a small community dance school. In the years since, TSPA has grown and flourished to become a thriving performing arts organisation, giving young people in south east London tuition, opportunities and experiences in dance, drama and singing.
TSPA is a social enterprise company dedicated to enriching the lives of young people. We do not rely on grants and government support - we sustain ourselves by providing a top quality range of performing arts activities for young people at the most competitive prices we can.
What your children do outside of school is important: for their well-being and development, and also for your bank balance and peace of mind. Our mission is to provide you with that peace of mind, and provide them with an amazing experience outside of school; we have never set out to be the cheapest around, because we believe in quality. What we believe in is value for money: being competitively priced and affordable yes, but above all we have learned that you want your children's experience with us to surpass the ordinary - to be something special. This is our mission every day, week and month of the year.
We run dance classes in ballet, street, jazz, tap, lyrical, acro, pre-school and more; Stage Stars and the Musical Theatre Academy on Saturdays features dance, drama and singing; we run a Singing Stars group and Elite Competition Teams, plus a full time day college for sixth form age students wishing to study performing arts more seriously as a potential career.
We now receive over 400 visits per week from young people and we absolutely love what we do - we'd love the chance to welcome your children into the TSPA world. So please get in touch to arrange your visit to our Studios at The Link, check out our FAQs if you seek information, and we look forward to sharing with you all that we can offer.
"I was hesitant to let my daughter join another stage school after a bad experience at another school where her confidence was destroyed. I am so glad I gave Theatre Street a chance - she has grown so much in confidence and passed several exams. You certainly get value for money!"
