Welcome to Prima Stage School

Prima Stage School was established in 1990 and has become a highly respected local dance, singing and drama school based near Maidstone, Kent.

The school provides opportunities for children and adults of all ages to experience the thrill of performance and learn a varied repertoire from Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz and Contemporary dance, to Street Dance, Singing, Drama and Musical Theatre. The whole school has the opportunity of performing in our Bi-Annual Showcases (Junior and Senior shows alternate years) held at the Hazlitt Theatre, Maidstone, as well as a smaller show just for the Musical Theatre, Drama and Singing classes.

In addition, we have a Bi-Annual Awards Presentation show, occasional opportunities to dance at school fetes and talented and more serious students are invited to represent the school as a member of our festival troupes. We also encourage students to audition for bigger productions with companies such as the National and English Youth Ballets, the local Kent Youth Ballet, and Laban CAT, with whom we have sent many successful pupils.

We are dedicated to bringing out the best in every child. Whether the aim is to improve coordination, to gain confidence and grace, to learn the joy of movement or to train for a career in dance – every child is important.
