All About CTA
Chiswick Theatre Arts was founded in September 2008 by its Principal Miss Georgina Burns. Although CTA is a very young school it has grown rapidly with new students discovering CTA by word of mouth. The school started life in a very small studio on the popular Devonshire Road, Chiswick and then expanded to larger purpose designed premises at the beginning of 2010.
CTA Musical Theatre School
CTA takes pride in being a Centre for Excellence in Musical Theatre for children. Singing, dancing and drama promote imagination and creativity as well as enhancing self expression, self esteem and confidence. Our classes encourage social interaction, teamwork and cooperation.
Testimonials - what our parents say...
Great local community theatre and dance company. My daughter has attended for almost 5 years and loves her ballet classes. They do an annual end of year production and all of the children are invited to participate. There's free parking at Sainsburys (adjacent) for two hours if you spend a tenner which is worth knowing.
My elder daughter has been going to Chiswick theatre arts since she was 6 years old she is now 16 & started college & she is still going their now as she absolutely loves it there, my younger daughter who is now 8 years old has been going since she was 3 years old, she loves it there too. All the teachers are wonderful, they're all dedicated to the children. They do an amazing dance show each year. I would totally recommend it.
My daughter has been attending Chiswick Theatre Arts for around 7 years and absolutely loves it. She attends classes there every Saturday and mid week and has a huge amount of fun there. The teaching is superb as is shown in their brilliant dance exam results with many pupils gaining merits and distinctions. The annual musical theatre production at Questors Theatre in Ealing is of a really high standard and the children really enjoy working towards it during the year. The teachers are brilliant, approachable and professional, managing to make the lessons really enjoyable as well as teaching to a very high standard. My daughter is now a teenager and she's made some great friends there and has really grown in confidence and acting and dancing skills. It keeps her active, gives her an interest outside of school and it teaches her great skills and focus. But perhaps most...
