Welcome to The Tiptree Academy of Performing Arts. We have been welcoming the children of Tiptree and North Essex through our doors since January 2014.

Our classes not only offer the best pre-professional training to our students, but also help them to develop their confidence, communication skills and creative thinking. Most importantly all this takes place in a supportive and encouraging family environment where our student’s happiness and well-being is our number one priority.

If you want to have fun and learn the skills required for all disciplines then ‘Young Performers‘ or ‘TAPA Juniors‘ is the class for you! If you wish to take exams and receive recognised qualifications we also offer I.S.T.D Dance, LAMDA Solo Acting  and Musical Theatre exam classes.

All our classes take place every Saturday for talented young performers aged 2-18 at St Luke’s School, Church Road, Tiptree, CO5 0SU.

Fabian had a fantastic time with you at TAPA from its inception through to him completing his LAMDA grade 8. Through the enthusiasm, patience and support of all the teachers, Fabian is now embarking on a career as an actor. He will take with him from all the teachers at TAPA a love of performing, understanding of professionalism and consideration for his fellow actors. Fabian has gained skills which have added joy to other areas of his life and will continue to help him throughout his life, from his teachers at TAPA.

Charlotte loves going to TAPA every week. From musical theatre to dance and drama, from summer schools to shows, she  looks forward to the classes every week. She has progressed really well in the LAMDA and ISTD exams, but more importantly has grown in confidence, and thoroughly enjoyed herself
