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.

My daughter has been attending TAPA since it opened its doors and loves her Saturdays. It is like a family – all the children support each other and the teachers are 100% about encouraging each child to the best of their ability. The confidence my daughter has from attending and growing up as part of the academy is second to none and I can’t imagine her not going.

We have watched Grace grow in confidence so much over her years at TAPA. From making new friends to amazing experiences, whether it’s workshops with West End stars, performing on stage at theatres or taking exams, Grace just loves it all!!
