Musical Theatre Classes for Kids in Edinburgh

Why choose Edinburgh Theatre School?

At Edinburgh Theatre School we teach our students so much more than just acting, singing and dancing. We help them grow into confident, versatile, well-rounded students who remain friends for life. Our classes aim to engage and involve all pupils all the time, while still providing enough individual attention to those who need it. At Edinburgh Theatre School we celebrate differences. We feel it is important to embrace each students individuality and use our differences productively, encouraging peer teaching and creating an atmosphere of cooperation, friendly competition and inclusivity. 

Our classes are full of fun, energy and of course, excellent training. Each Term is focused around learning new skills and material that will be performed at either our Summer Musical or at our Winter Showcase. At DN Theatre we aim to give our students as many performance opportunities as possible. We will also soon be introducing LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) examinations into our classes for those interested in taking their acting and singing skills to the next level. 

Our classes are spread right across Edinburgh running at our South Gyle and Chesser Studios, as well as at South Queensferry Roseberry Hall. Our wonderful teachers go to each location to provide consistency and excellence across all classes.

Spotlight is our annual stage performance programme offered to all students. Once a year, all age groups come together to perform an adaptation of a stage show classic in one of Edinburgh’s many beautiful theatre venues. It’s a great way to give students a taste of the big stage, develop confidence and to showcase their skills and musical development to family and friends. We also produce an in house ‘singing showcase’ every December to get us in the spirit of Christmas!



“I was so impressed by how quickly you mobilised classes on zoom & got the girls engaged and doing something they genuinely love. It was honestly one of the highlights of each lockdown week. As a Mum I loved hearing bits of the class each week, the music, the dancing and the chatter and giggles.”

Great Variety

“Fantastic mix of singing, acting and dancing. My daughter loves her classes each week”


“The camaraderie between all the kids is so clear to see, which is lovely, in such a short length of time since the group started.  It’s like a DN Theatre family. Going forward, I can only see this getting bigger and bigger….. I am beyond words! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Unapologetically themselves

“The best thing I think is watching the kids all being so comfortable in being unapologetically themselves and being able to express themselves and shine in such a safe environment. Thank you for all you do!”


“Both boys loved the rehearsals and the shows. The enthusiasm of the teachers really encouraged the kids confidence to grow and get them to join in regardless of their age!”


“It is so nice to see the students grow in confidence so much by taking part in the Spotlight performances. They always put on such a good show.”


“Our child enjoyed every minute of rehearsals and the show. There was a real feeling of togetherness between the cast and the staff. Well done to everyone involved, a fantastic experience.”
