Stage Academinis

For everyone in Pre School and P1–P2 wanting to get an early start in Performing Arts!

Children can find their performing feet at Stage Academinis – fun, safe and friendly after-school sessions for 4–7s that explore acting, singing and dance.

Our Stage Academies programme proved so popular that we launched a junior version, Stage Academinis, bringing all the great quality training of The MGA Academy of Performing Arts together into a small but amazing package.

Get ready for drama, singing and dance, all rolled into one exciting 90-minute session after school. Classes include: warm-ups, games, dance styles, singing and acting. Join us for adventures, create characters and become a Mini star!

Stage Academinis classes build confidence and help develop skills and creativity. MGA offer children a safe environment to grow and stretch themselves in, while they have fun and meet new friends… perfect for little ones with big imaginations!
