TAPA has been a part of our family forever. Both of our daughters have grown up with TAPA, helped along the way by the TAPA principals and their amazing support team. They can’t imagine life without it on a Saturday – even after 14 years!   With LAMDA , singing and dance exams too numerous to count under their belts, they’ve fully embraced all that TAPA has to offer. They’ve both seized  the opportunity to help in classes where they can and act as role models for the younger students.   You can embrace it all, or not, either way it’s a wholly inclusive environment where everybody is seen and heard, irrespective of talent or ability.  My girls love it.

TAPA offers an array of drama, dance and musical theatre opportunities in a safe and friendly environment. My daughter’s passion for performing has been nurtured, her confidence continues to grow and she absolutely loves spending Saturday with her TAPA friends.

A fun filled place to be where not only my girls that have attended since the age of 4 (eldest is now 17) but the whole family feel like we are all part of the Tiptree academy family. It’s the best way to spend a Saturday.

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!!

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.

TAPA has been a god send not only to my daughter who has been attending for the last 11 years but for myself as well, the support and care that is provided by the team is second to none and I would recommend them to everyone I meet. They are simply amazing

TAPA is a place where you learn something new each time with the help of the amazing teachers. Both my girls have thrived in confidence from a young age benefitting them in all aspects of their lives.

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.

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
