ABOUT

    Welcome to LDPA!

    Lucie Downer has over a decade of experience in the performing industry having performed in a number of West End Shows including 'Grease The Musical','Shrek The Musical' and 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' to name a few.

    ** Check out our 'Classes' page to view our full timetable and see what's on offer at LDPA! **

    Lucie has decided to share her experiences and inspire young children of Northamptonshire by opening LDPA. "I believe that the only people that should be teaching young people the skills that are required in the performing arts are people that are passionate, creative and who have real experience in those chosen fields."

    At LDPA, we begin every student's journey by building confidence. Whether a child is 'Born to Perform' or struggling with confidence, we nurture and develop each individual. Learning to express oneself is an important part of a child's development and we aim to help inspire creative, independent, intelligent performers.

    LDPA is a performance based school and will hold Theatre Performances during the year to give students a real insight to the industry and a chance to shine. We also have syllabus based classes working towards NATD and ISTD examinations in dance and LAMDA examinations in Drama and Singing.

    CLASSES

    DANCE: Improves fitness and stamina whilst learning fun new moves! Dance also improves coordination, posture, the ability to express creativity and confidence.

    SINGING: Pop, Contemporary and Musical Theatre are just some of the genres of music we cover at LDPA. We also teach safe vocal technique, solo performance, acting through song and group harmony work.

    ACTING: Confidence building, acting for camera, comedy improvisation and working with different scripts are just a small example of what the children will work on at LDPA.

    We offer one free trial session to all new LDPA students to give them a chance to see our studios and meet our teachers - our next trial sessions will run from Monday 1st November - Saturday 6th November so please get in touch to try a new class with us then!
