Breakout Performing Arts is a children's theatre school located in Walsall, for 3-16 year olds. They offer affordable yet outstanding tuition in the areas of singing, dancing, and acting. No child is held back, and no child is left behind.

At Breakout Performing Arts students learn new skills and hone existing ones in a safe and positive environment, through their fresh and exciting curriculum. Many parents speak of their child's stratospheric growth in confidence during their time at the theatre school. Skills and attributes – like confidence, creativity, and teamwork – are intentionally developed in their classes and are not just important on stage but are valuable in all walks of life.

Breakout is also a great place to make new friends with those who share your child’s enthusiasm for the performing arts. It's a space where your child can have great fun with new-found friends, getting away from that screen and exercising the body and mind!
