About Us

Drama Classes, Dance Classes and Singing Classes in Welwyn-Hatfield. Classes run Saturdays during school term time.

Come and join us at Theatretrain Welwyn-Hatfield 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 have 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 Waterside Academy
Our theatre 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 Welwyn including Hatfield, Tewin, Codicote, Welwyn Garden City and the surrounding areas.
No auditions are necessary as we teach them everything they need to know!

Our Team

Our teachers are all highly trained and experienced individuals that are dedicated to our students development and Theatretrain itself.

Many are still working professionally as performers so bring their experience of this to the classroom along with that from their training and previous teaching posts.
