MidiKids 7-11yrs

“We love Showkids – it has been a real turning point for our six year old son – we’ve seen his confidence grow massively. Seeing him perform on a stage was a big moment. I highly recommend!” Bruno's Mum

Our MidiKids workshops build on your child’s confidence, while exploring a wider range of acting skills and techniques essential in performance.

Our MidiKids curriculum is written by us to build on skills developed throughout our MiniKids workshops, however all projects and activities are fully accessible to new children joining the groups. Our experienced practitioners will guide your child through carefully-planned, fun-filled activities which encourage collaboration and stimulate their imagination through exploration of:

  • Performance from Script
  • Characterisation
  • Use of Voice 
  • Dance
  • Musical Theatre
  • Responsiveness to a scene/character 
  • Devising & Improvisation
  • Genre exploration (Musical Theatre, Melodrama, Slapstick, Drama) 
  • Stagecraft 
  • LAMDA examinations on request 
  • Parents of MidiKids receive written updates each term on their child’s development. 
  • MidiKids share performance work with family and friends at three stages throughout the year, allowing parents to regularly celebrate their child’s progress. 
  • All our musical theatre and drama workshops provide opportunities for children to work in friendship groups- and with others- to develop confidence and social skills. 
  • Simple Mindfulness techniques are utilised in workshops to promote wellbeing and self-awareness.
