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, Acro 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 going to TAPA for many years. She absolutely loves it. She has learnt so much whilst having lots of fun. The teachers are amazing and we love being a part of the TAPA family.

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!!
