About Us

Welcome to the Tiptree Academy of Performing Arts. We have been in the village since January 2014 . We are at St Lukes School right in the centre of the village.  Our Saturday classes are for talented young performers aged 2-18 in drama, singing, and dance. If you want to have fun and learn the skills required for all disciplines then our ‘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, Solo Acting LAMDA and Trinity Musical Theatre exam classes. For older students age 12 upwards the ‘Senior TAPA Package’ that runs independently is just what you are looking for.

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.

Don’t Forget we still have a few spaces in our TAPA TOTs Classes for 2-4 Year Olds. OThe Ballet & Tap is 9.30-10.15am and the Drama & Singing class runs 10.15-11.00am

All our weekly classes take place at St Luke’s School, Church Road, Tiptee, CO5 0SU. Please enter the school car park and access to TAPA is through the entrance door near the Main Hall.

Elf The Musical

Our  production of ‘Elf’ The Musical was performed at The West Cliff Theatre on 18th November 2018 and received wonderful praise from all who saw it.

The theatre congratulated us on a well behaved cast who acted very professionally backstage as well as on it!

A highlight of ours was when the the snow fell at the end of the show much to a surprised casts delight!
