About Us

Drama Classes, Dance Classes and Singing Classes in Braintree.
Classes run Saturdays during school term time

Come and join us at Theatretrain Braintree for  dance, drama and singing classes for 6-18 year olds. Whether you’re a West End wannabe or a shy wallflower looking to make friends and gain confidence this is the place for you. Our ethos is as a ‘performance company’ and ALL students take part in ALL productions whatever their level of ability. We believe this not only gives our students skills and confidence in performance but also respect and appreciation for each other AND the responsibility of working for the team not just themselves.
So come along…we’d love to have you on board!

Our Approach

For over two decades we’ve championed an exhilarating approach to theatre school education
in the theatrical arts for young people aged 6-18.

We teach our children how to Dance, Act and Sing in performing arts classes at
Tabor Academy in Braintree.
Our Stage school brings out the best in students, builds confidence, and gives aspiring young actors opportunities of a lifetime via our large scale London shows and our smaller local shows each year.

We would love the opportunity to show you around our school and introduce you to our students so that you can appreciate what we have to offer.

Our Team

Kara Challis - Dance

I have a BA(Hons) in Dance from Middlesex University, where I trained in a variety of contemporary dance techniques, and majored in choreography. In 2014, I received my PGCE in Dance Teaching from The Royal Academy of Dance, London, which has enabled me to teach full time in secondary schools. I now currently teach both Dance and Drama up to GCSE and A Level. I have been a Dance teacher for Theatretrain since 2011.

Emily Kerruish - Act

I have been teaching at Theatretrain for 4 years and have recently graduated from Mount view with a degree in Performing Arts. I attended Theatretrain as a child and I absolutely loved my Saturday mornings there. I believe that this was what ignited my passion for Musical Theatre. I thoroughly enjoy teaching the Drama at this well established centre here at Braintree. We have such a lovely atmosphere and dedicated, hard working students that make my job such a joy.

Zoe West - Sing

I have been a professional singer for the last 18 years. Singing was all I ever wanted to do and was the thing that made me the most happy and fulfilled. I am the lead singer of F.O.X - a synth pop band. We write and produce all our own songs and we have been lucky enough to tour the world several times - including most recently 2 European stadium tours with Depeche Mode playing to audiences of 60,000+ a night. Our music has been used on several TV and cinema campaigns and has been played on Radio 1, BBC 6, MTV, VIVA and many others. We were also the first band to ever play in the House of Commons - something I think they never wish to repeat! I have years of practical experience which I'm keen to pass on - it's about learning to let go of your inhibitions and really being able to give a sincere performance that will make you stand out - if you can do that the vocal will naturally follow. This is the case for any manner of singing - musical theatre or rock and pop.
