What to expect
During your child’s time at Footlights Burnley, our tutors will mentor them to help them realise their dreams of becoming a performer, by sharing their professional experiences, as well as facilitating and teaching performance techniques.
Footlights delivers quality performing arts training and our aim is to ensure that each child gets the most out of their experience by building their essential life skills and instilling confidence, whilst having lots of fun and meeting new friends. In addition to core performing arts skills, they will,
- Have confidence when socialising and in nursery or primary or high school:
- Be encouraged to talk expressively in a structured, yet exciting forum
- Be inspired when taking part in discussions
- Be listened to when building skills in decision making
- Always be working as part of a team
Their learning will give them the basics and arguably the most important components of the performing arts.
The younger the child is when they take up an activity or interest the better, as in the right environment and with the right teacher they underpin the foundation to their learning and will already have a head-start on their peers.
You will find the Footlights approach friendly and energetic. We pride ourselves on inclusivity and being an encouraging company for your child to thrive in acting, singing and dance. We have superb progression rates from our schools, with the majority of our young students going onto performing arts colleges and drama schools.
We know you want to find the right balance between ensuring your child gets a good performing arts education, has fun and at the same time keeps up with their important mainstream education. We understand this, so this is why our method to developing your child’s Acting, Singing and Dancing will complement their academic studies. Plus, at Footlights, your child will benefit from the opportunity to take internationally recognised examinations through LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts).
There is also the option for students to audition for professional work in film, theatre and modelling via our agency, Footlights Personal Management (our recent successes include Game of Thrones and the CBBC series ‘KATY’).

Footlights Burnley is the second franchise for the dynamic duo that is Aaron Doherty and Jack Tubb. They opened their first school Footlights Rossendale in April 2018 and have gone on to build a strong, successful stage school now open over 4 days a week.
A new Stage School and a new location seemed like the only right next decision. They are both now extremely excited to build a school for the Burnley/Colne community and hope that they are as impactful in their new location.

Over 6 years ago my younger siblings went along to a Footlights school for a free trial and after watching their journey and seeing what the school was doing for their social and creative skills, I was hooked. I have fully immersed myself into Footlights. I think it’s incredibly important to have such a reputable award-winning company behind you to help you build a successful business.
I am so passionate about seeing children thrive in a creative setting and giving young people of the community as many opportunities as possible. I’m incredibly excited to see what Footlights Burnley will achieve.
After the great success of our first school it is remarkable that we are able to help new children and young people in a completely new area. Although originally from Essex I now have family members who live around the Burnley/Colne area and this location was my first true experience of the North so I’m extremely excited to be setting up a school here and looking forward to meeting all our new students and families.
All our tutors have extensive in experience both in the performing arts sector and education.
In Tiny’s your child is taught acting, singing and dance in bite-size chunks, so that they can grasp the techniques easier, have fun and develop a love for the arts from a young age.
The Tiny’s concept is to prepare your child for main school. By the time that they leave the Tiny’s group, your child will be ahead of most 7 year olds who are new to performing arts. Our passion to teach will bring your child’s confidence to life.
During Acting your child will learn improvisation, script reading, character analysis, explore new plays, learn about tv and film acting, all within a safe, fun environment. Acting class creates a place where your child can express themselves freely and we will ensure encourage them to be their best self, drawing on their existing skills and teaching them new ones so they can reach their full potential.
You will see their transformation when they perform twice a year, we also offer LAMDA qualifications in acting so you can track their progress.
In our singing classes, your child will learn how to warm up their vocal chords, how to use their bodies to create the best sound, they will learn breath control, how to support their voice and how to sustain it. We’ll train them to sing in harmonies, a group as well, or in a duet. They will learn about composers from Musical Theatre, as well as sing pop songs. In class, we also encourage them to sight read and recognise terminology. All this is done in a safe environment where they will learn to relax so the voice can sing – we can’t wait to hear them!
Our dance tutor aims to teach your child brand new skills in dance, commercial, ballet, street and of course musical theatre. Their passion and drive will keep your child engaged and develop their excitement even further in the art of dance. Your child will work on timing, precision and technique as well as choreography, we will tailor her lesson to the groups skill set, so if your child is a little more advanced we will challenge them and if your child is brand new they will be set short term achievable goals to inspire them.
