Schools and Colleges

We offer bespoke workshops to primary and secondary schools as well as universities, youth clubs, theatre groups and drama societies.

Our workshops are tailored to the needs of the participants and can be designed to complement or build on an existing curriculum or just to the interests of the group. Our workshops usually focus on devising methods, physical theatre and ensemble theatre making. We can also offer workshops that explore the themes of our productions to accompany a theatre visit. We can work with a small group, an entire year group, or even a whole school.

 

Our workshops are designed after careful consideration of the aims and needs of the group. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss a possible workshop in more detail.

 

What it's like having us in your school

“Tangled Feet’s energy, dedication and ideas have allowed our students to experience something very special, from the audience members who were tents and huge ‘flocks’ of people gliding across the playground to the Year 12s and 13s who got to perform alongside professionals. We have all gained so much”- Zoe Shepherd, Head of Drama, Beaumont School -
“What I found very effective about the way the company worked was their inclusive approach and their expectations of the students to work as professional alongside the practitioners. The practitioners were unique in their individual approach to different groups of students and being involved in the collaborative process which resulted in stimulating and imaginative work.”- Sophie Leader, Head of Drama, Wren Academy -

How Tangled Feet are tackling anxiety in children

A report from the Children’s Commissioner at the end of last year found that there is an ‘epidemic of anxiety’ in young people. The number of children seeing psychiatrists has risen by a third, with the highest increase – 31% in a year – seen in those aged 9 and under. It’s a shocking rise. (Thanks to Flossie Waite from Children’s Theatre Reviews for digging out the statistic).   It was this sort of news that prompted us to make Butterflies, a Co-Production with Half Moon, that used anxiety in children as a starting point for a show for 3-8 year olds. We first started making the show in 2017 and did some test performances at Half Moon. This year we have developed the show and it’s touring until Nov 24th.  Alongside the tour we have launched a Mindfulness programme to run in four schools in 2019.
