Now in our 9th year, we believe we offer the best learning experience around.
Here are just a few of the reasons why we think you’ll love it to.


Notoriously the performing arts is used as a vehicle to increase confidence in young people. At Shine On Stage Watford, we have seen first-hand the impact of regular performing arts training and how the power of not only performance but also the process of exploring, creating and achieving can transform a child or young adult, feeding into other areas of their life and giving them confidence, enthusiasm and belief in themselves which is so crucial as they navigate their way through childhood and adolescence.


As an INDEPENDENT company run by INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS you can be sure that the tuition is of the highest calibre, relevant and in line with what is going on in the showbiz world. VIP tutors from the West End regularly deliver masterclasses to our pupils and our pupils gain top marks in exams, have landed TV roles, and gained places on prestigious national training programs.


The atmosphere at Shine On Stage is friendly and fun. Our pupils have a great time with us each week making new friends as well as nurturing existing friendships through the collaborative work our classes include. Termly projects within all of our classes are always exciting and inspiring with pupils counting down the days until their next class. Our classes are full of energy with smiles all around! Come and join us to experience it for yourself!
