SOTA Reading - Dance, Singing, Drama & Musical Theatre classes on Saturdays
Flexible options to suit your needs - with outstanding results
Every Saturday, during term time a selection of classes in singing, drama, dance & musical theatre run at Reading Girls School, Northumberland Avenue in Reading. Pupils are able to attend as much or as little as they choose, from just a single ballet class to a whole day of acting, singing and dance lessons.
All in one place - on one day
Students can learn everthing they need at one venue, on one day of the week. This leaves the children free in the weekday evenings to pursue their education commitments and means parents are free too - not a taxi service!
Free Sample Sessions
We offer a free sample session to all our classes so that you can make sure we are the right school for you.

Accredited Dance & Drama Qualifications
The L.A.M.D.A. Drama and I.S.T.D. Dance exams we offer are national recognised qualifications that fall within the national qualifications framework. In plain english this means pupils can work towards and achieve qualifications that will earn them UCAS points which are valuable when entering further and higher education.
