Since reopening after lockdown, Razzamataz Theatre School has witnessed firsthand how taking part in performing arts classes has boosted children’s confidence and self-esteem. Principal Michaela and her team have seen how they are bouncing back week after week, which has been further supported by numerous testimonials from grateful families.
Razzamataz has a strong ethos of inclusion and welcomes children regardless of ability or any mental or physical illnesses. While some will go on to become professional performers, others gain life skills to pursue their own dreams and aspirations.
