Performance workshops for children and families

We offer truly unique dance classes for children and their families that are based on our critically acclaimed productions.



A Day to Play is the perfect mix of performance by professional dancers with an interactive workshop designed for all the family to take part in (even the grown-ups!) Each session is led by professional dancers and our award winning director and first ever Artist in Residence at BBC Radio 2, Thomas Small.  

We present brand new versions of our critically acclaimed productions that have toured the world, in the coolest locations! A Day to Play allows children and young people to be adventurous and explore creativity alongside expert pro dancers.  

The sessions help children and young people to develop their self-confidence through a range of stimulating exercises and encourage problem solving and collaboration with others.  From the moment you arrive at A Day to Play until the moment you leave, you are immersed in new, exciting worlds!

A Day to Play is intergenerational so they are suitable for children and young people from the age of 2 to 12 and we would LOVE for families to come along too and join in the playtime with a creative adventure with your kids.  Carers, grannies, aunties and best pals are all welcome - the more the merrier!  You don't need ANY experience to enjoy A Day to Play so come give it a whirl.  

No workshop is ever the same and there is NOTHING else like this! So, come spend a magical afternoon with Shaper/Caper!
