Young people are invited to join the Get Involved programme at The Core theatre, Corby.

Weekly classes have now started in dance, drama and digital arts and the theatre is also offering one-off workshops and week-long courses.

This term’s weekly programme includes Moves Street Dance, with classes for children aged eight to 12, and 12 upwards, led by Leah Waterfield, a dance graduate with her own dance company in Kettering.

The lively Sparks Youth Theatre has sessions for five to seven-year-olds, and eight to 11-year-olds, under the tuition of Emma Boulton Roe.

The Core’s Musical Theatre groups, for 10 to 13-year-olds and young people over 14 will be honing their singing and dancing skills, working with Phia O’Keefe who has choreographed in the West End, and The Core’s creative projects manager Lisa Byrne will be working with the youth theatre group, Core Company, for 11 to 16-year-olds.

The Clicks media group, for 10 to 16-year-olds, will be working on digital animation, with Andy Eathorne, a film-maker and digital artist who has collaborated on an exciting range of projects around the county.

Each of the courses is made up of 12 weekly sessions costing £35 for the term and a limited number of bursaries are available for children and young people whose families are facing financial difficulties.
