About Our Program

Well rounded performer, that is what we think of when we think of the Phoenix Young Performers. PYP is a triple threat program ranging from juniors who are just starting out and are learning new skills to seniors who are a little more experienced and wish to enhance their knowledge and ability. Focusing on the core physical skills of acting, dancing and singing and by participating in our classes on a weekly basis our students will touch on all of these attributes. This will then be all brought together in term 3 for a musical theatre performance on the main stage.

PYP is so much more than just an arts program, we believe that engaging in the arts at a young age is so important to life experience. Young people who participate regularly are four times more likely to be recognised for academic achievement, to participate in a Maths and Science fair or to win an award for writing an essay or poem, than children who do not. It challenges them to different points of view and to understand and empathise with others to be able to take on a character role. The growth mindset, self-confidence, self understanding and awareness, co-ordination, time management and enhanced communication, are just a few of the benefits that are developed in class while having fun with their friends.
