My son joined Platinum Performing Arts School five years ago after watching (and beingamazed by) one of their urban pantomimes. Since then, his confidence has grown immensely and he has progressed enormously in dancing, acting and singing. He loves the school and its ethos and has been given some amazing performance opportunities since joining, including performing to huge audiences at the 02 and Wembley arena. The staff are welcoming, professional and know what each individual child needs in order to progress further. Boys are encouraged to train in a variety of dance styles such as ballet, tap and contemporary dance which is really encouraging to see. Platinum Performing Arts is brimming with talent and I would highly recommend it to anyone with a child who has an interest in performing arts.
My son and daughter have been with Platinum Performing Arts for the past 6 years. I cannot speak highly enough of them! the teaching standard is excellent and they are so friendly and loving towards the pupils, you can tell they just love what they do; there is such a lovely warm atmosphere! They offer professional, friendly and fun classes for all ages. My kids had progressed very well through their exams and had enjoyed the End of year show that they put on that are amazing to be a part of. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.
I first joined Platinum Performing Arts in 2014 and after the intense training and my first July show, I knew Platinum Performing Arts could offer me the training I needed. My experience here has been phenomenal starting off as a young boy who knew very little about street dance, to someone who has gained the knowledge of Ballet, Tap, Musical Theatre, Commercial, Drama, and Singing. From then till now I’ve been part of their amazing pantomimes such as ‘Beauty and The Hulk’ including their end of years shows where you are able to showcase your training you’ve done throughout the year. The PPA family have both supported me and changed me into a performer I never saw myself being.
As a parent of a fame hungry Platinum student, life is never boring. I’ve watched my child grow from a quiet, reserved, tiny 6 year old, into a young woman with the world at her feet, and platinum wings on her back to take her wherever she wants to go. She has made lifelong friends, both young and old, that have touched her heart and will remain there forever. Platinum is one big extended family, that looks out for each other, has faith in each other, and loves one another.
I joined my daughter to Platinum when she was three years old. She was an extremely shy child to the point if someone said “Hi” she would cry. Platinum changed my daughter’s life. She has now been a student for 9 Years and is become an amazing dancer, taking part and wining many competitions and featuring in many theatre production with Platinum. She has also been encouraged to take exams in Tap and Ballet. My daughter today has a passion for dance and performing, and even though she’s only 12, seeing some of her friends being offered places into amazing colleges and universities is making her already think that Platinum is not just about winning trophies but Platinum is about education. I am proud to say that we are part of the Platinum ‘Family’ and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
We’ve been attending Platinum Performing Arts School for four years. Watching the amazing talent these children have, the commitment that they have and the passion is amazing.It’s not just about dance, it’s about all the other things they learn. It’s learning to be disciplined, to work with a team and be proud and supportive team members. It’s about learning to make and accomplish goals.We are all so proud of our Platinum family, blood or or not, we are family.
Our daughters joined Platinum in January 2016 and from the day of their trial became part of an extended family & haven’t looked back!We moved the girls from another dance school as they became quite unsettled, causing them to stop participating in their lessons, lose confidence and their enthusiasm for performing. The team at Platinum have reignited their passion and they look forward to every lesson. I’d also like Platinum to be acknowledged for their inclusivity, they successfully supported our eldest daughter through a very difficult time where she had severely reduced hearing. Their acceptance & understanding enabled her to achieve outstanding grades in her dance exams.
I’ve been at Platinum now for about three and a half years and I honestly can say that I have developed ever so much. It was all a journey for me: starting on a Saturday knowing nobody, gradually making friends, going to all Platinum events, attending all sessions, making the most out of them, eventually taking more classes, auditioning for troop and the pantomime which all even more unexpectedly lead me to winning the achievement award. Being around so many talented people in Platinum really pushed me to want to be the best that I can be, and has eventually got me where I am today at the BRIT School. The pressures of wanting to succeed do really build up and it’s easy to get lazy and complacent but when you’re in an environment like Platinum where everybody wants to perform you just have to keep striving. It is inevitably hard work but Platinum has given me both the confidence and platform to do me and really be the risk taker and challenger that I aim to be. I am truly grateful and will continue to keep working and pushing through this learning process. Now turning 18 I am applying for different musical theatre courses and looking back I am overwhelmed by how much I have improved to even be in a position where I feel ready to begin applying for courses. I have still got so much growing to do and even as I grow older and start thinking about my future, Platinum have supported my goals and provided me with teacher training, which is a vital attribute to my future. Platinum is most definitely a platform but most importantly a place for training and development and one can really be exceptional providing you make the most out of your experience.
