About Us

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

Come and join us at Theatretrain Cambridge South 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 inspiring performing arts classes at
Trumpington Meadows

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 accept students from areas around Cambridge including Ely, Newmarket, Soham, Haverhill, Royston, St. Neots.
No auditions are necessary as we teach them everything they need to know!

Our Team

At Theatretrain Cambridge South you will experience professional classes and professional performances and work with a great team!!
All our Teachers and staff are DBS checked and are either working in the industry and/or a qualified teacher.

Bianca Stanford & George Hopkins – Centre Directors

George & Bianca are extremely excited to have taking over both Theatretrain Cambridge North and South in the Autumn term of 2020. They both met at University, where they developed their pre-existing passion Theatre and the Performing Arts. They share a love for performance and have worked both on and off stage in Theatre for Education, short films and various Small Scale theatre productions. Bianca has been a part of the Theatretrain family from a young age, having gone through all three main school age groups. In recent years George has been a regular friendly face at Theatretrain, helping chaperone shows, including 2019’s ‘Move!’ at the Royal Albert Hall, and more recently supported the weekly running of Theatretrain classes. We are so passionate about helping children to express their love for the arts and improving their life skills.
