There are opportunities for children and adults to perform in Music, Dance and Drama sections. The Syllabus lists all the classes you can enter and there is something for everyone, whatever your level of skill. In some classes you can compete for a trophy and others are just for fun. Everyone gets feedback on their performance to help them improve in the future.
