Client Reviews

“I started STING initially to look after my brother as he was shy! It became the best part of my week and I never left! It became the foundation of my training. STING grew my brothers confidence amd they got him an audition & part in Matilda West End Musical.  He went on to perform the lead as Adrian Mole in Adrian Mole. I caught the performing bug and STING really gave me that confidence to pursue a career in the arts I am now on a 3 year degree course at mountview.”

My daughter has been coming to this drama company half her life now, that’s 5 years of confidence building, making new friends, having fun and doing exactly what she loves; singing, dancing and acting. It’s like my family she once told me which is just so lovely to hear and I know she’s having the best time ever which is so important to me. I can’t thank the lovely Tam and Lisa enough for all their support and encouragement over the years, they’ve helped my daughter gain the confidence she has today in her personal life and when she gets up on that stage it clearly shines through and is so happy. The Pop School workshop is like the best week of her life as well lol. Thank you so much for all the hard work and personal touches you do that makes you the best performing arts  school in Essex!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.”

Can’t thank all the staff enough for managing to get my 12 year old son to come out of his shell, he’s come on leaps and bounds in such a short time. He has so much fun and raves about the classes.”

“I’ve been with the theatre company for many years now and can’t rate them enough especially with their ability to cater for all abilities and treating everyone equally, my speech and language impediment has never been a problem.”

Ollie Campbell

“I have known the Sting Performing Arts Team for several years now, the dedication and passion that goes into their productions is amazing. They really have a way to bring out the talent in their students which makes the shows they put on incredible.”

James Thomas

“I just wanted to email to say well done for the performance that you and your colleagues put together yesterday, really was fantastic. Also, a special Thankyou to Hayley, she has brought out a confidence in Amelie that John and I have never seen. Amelie did amazing yesterday and we were both so proud. A speaking part for  Amelie is huge, especially for a child who never wants to say anything in special assemblies..even though only a couple of words a big step for her. So Thankyou so much.”

Kelly Rippon

My daughter has been attending Sting Performing arts with Lisa and Tamara for over five years now and she absolutely loves it. The whole team involved make all the children and young adults feel special, they encourage and support them all. The shows are fantastic and professional, the children have so much fun, I would recommend Sting performing arts to everyone.”

Zoe Hunt

“The team at Sting are amazing. They are truly passionate about the performing arts and nurturing that passion into the students. My daughter has been going to their classes for many years now and whilst she has honed her skills as a dancer, singer, actor and performer she has most importantly formed strong friendships, developed a charming confidence and learnt the true value of hard work and commitment. She absolutely loves her Saturday morning with you guys and we love watching the performances which are outstanding and so professional. Thank you.”

Mrs McInnes

“What a brilliant drama class for our little small  village. The team have done a wonderful job instilling confidence into your twins. I am surprised at how much one of our girls has come out of her shell, and will now happily sing away to me. This is down to the staff that teach her and her sister in Thaxted. Big shout out to Sting performing arts and a massive thank you to the teachers.” 

Nivedita Sahins
