"Create opportunities for youngsters to become involved in creative arts, whilst building confidence"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Reach Performing Arts (RPA) strives to create an opportunities for children and young people to become involved in creative activities which can act as a tool for engaging them in a variety of performing arts and other mutually beneficial activities. We see it as a means of offering young people the inspiration to unlock their creativity, develop skills, build confidence and self-esteem, giving them the opportunity to feel part of a team and realise their potential. 

At RPA the youngsters take part in dance, drama and singing/voice development, each Friday evening, working and having fun with a diverse group of youngsters, from age five upwards, representing a variety of cultures and backgrounds.

Building confidence allows the youngsters to attend auditions for television and theatre and a number have been successful in various TV roles to include adverts and CITV series.  In addition, they participate in events such as carnivals in Leeds, Huddersfield, Mirfield and Holmfirth, the annual Jump and Shout and Strictly Pennine dance festivals, both at Lawrence Batley Theatre (LBT) and productions such as Daylight Come, Henry V, and Aladdin the pantomime. 

Performing arts develop their language, communication and creative skills but also their confidence, helping them to achieve their full potential, develop creative passions, embracing individuality and self expression.

What We Do

How Reach Performing Arts helps

Performing arts play a significant role in helping children develop their creative skills. Educationalists emphasis the importance of "emotional intelligence", developing a creative mind and fostering personalities and imagination as children make their journey through school, to become happy and well-rounded individuals.  

Children can enjoy more improved performance in traditional academic subjects.

Children can become empowered in whatever career path they decide to follow.

Through the performing arts, we allow children to be playful, creative, to explore their curiosity, try out new things and new ways of thinking or behaving.

When children from different backgrounds and cultures come together they learn to develop an understanding and tolerance of different ideas and greater awareness and understanding of the world around them.

We offer holiday playschemes and providing a well-needed resource for children and parents alike.

PA can be put to real life uses such as presentation in meetings, interviews and dealing with bullying.
