August Updates

How are your holidays? Restful or busy, I think it is always the best time of the year!

Our Holiday Camps are still running. It has been so nice to offer odd days here and there so we can help with family plans. Are you juggling work with the kids? If you are, like us, you may want to think about booking one of our days this week to give you a few hours to get some admin ticked off or better still to sit in the sun!

We have days running on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week in Bishops Waltham Junior School with lots of fun planned.

You can book using the link below.

Our Seniors also have 2 more classes available – Lyrical and Ballet and they can be booked on the same link.

Our full classes start back on September 4th and we can’t wait to see you. We can see that lots of you have added a class or 2 to your current classes so that is exciting!

P.S Keep stretching and join in with our Roynon Stretch Bingo on Instagram and Facebook!

What is the ‘Triple Threat’ and why is it important?

The performing arts industry demands a high quality standard from its performers. But the skillset required in order to become successful in performance work has become more demanding than ever. This is otherwise known as the ‘Triple Threat’.

A few decades ago, it used to be the case that if you wished to pursue a career in the theatre that you could specialise in dance, music or drama, perhaps even honing in on a specific skill or genre (such as ballet in dance or monologue in drama). Nowadays, this simply isn’t the case. Dancers are expected to sing, singers are expected to dance, actors are expected to sing… and everything in between! 

Performers need to have equally high skills across dance, music and drama. Any individual who wishes to perform on stage needs to be able to pick up the dance styles featured within the show but also be equally great in any of the other creative fields. 

Wider skill set

Performers need to be able to sing with strength, projection, conviction and passion. They will need to be able to act convincingly and recite lines quickly, and deliver their part with a captivating, alluring stage persona. Performers also need to be knowledgeable in the production’s dance styles, whether it is tap, contemporary or modern. 

Find the right RPA class for you to improve your ‘Triple Threat’ status!


There are many scenarios within a production that the cast will need to deliver on a range of arts styles. One such scenario is being the stage ‘swing’. This is where they may be asked to stand in for a main role at the last minute due to illness, injury, etc. Being the ‘swing’ in a show is an example of a high-pressure, high-excitement industry environment where a performer gets to prove what they have learnt and refined at their time in the studio. But without being equally strong in dance, music and drama, a performer will not be considered to take on this highly regarded role. 


For those student seriously pursuing a career on stage, Roynon Performing Arts can help. We offer professional training to high grades in dance, music and drama, delivered by passionate and highly experienced teachers in their field. RPA understand the importance of ‘triple threat’ skills and is a key reason we thoroughly recommend our students of all ages and abilities to take at least one class in each faculty. 

The creative arts industry is fiercely competitive but incredibly rewarding – there is simply nothing else quite it! Roynon Performing Arts are passionate in giving each and every one of our students the best possible chance to succeed in the creative arts. We have supported 10,000s of students over the decades of our formation as a school and are always open to support even more budding creatives…

How RPA supports mental and physical wellbeing

The demands we all face at home, at work and in wider society can take their toll. We all need a safe space in which to express ourselves and release tension. 

Wellbeing is becoming an increasingly prevalent issue in society today, with one in five children experiencing a mental health issue at least once in their lives by the time they leave primary school.

The performing arts play a vital role in tackling this issue, offering a unique, safe outlet and a means to alleviate stress, anxiety and depression, whilst helping break down the expectations and pressures of social media and society. 

The Science of Art

It is scientifically proven that dance, music and drama help boost confidence, nurture communication and enhance problem solving skills.

The performing arts actually make individuals more resilient whilst helping with concentration, empathy and memory function. 

RPA can help!

Roynon Performing Arts offer a diverse range of dance, music and drama classes and workshops for all ages and abilities, from toddlers through to senior adults. All RPA students are taught important life skills in a safe, fun and professional environment which then has a positive, lasting impact on mental and physical health. 

The friendly yet structured environment of our studio is truly a phenomenal place where so much is learned, negative emotions and experiences are dealt with and ‘friends for life’ are made. Find out what makes the RPA studio unique to others here. 

The ‘triple threat’ arts of dance, music and drama are a true powerhouse when it comes to improving mental and physical health. Here are our top five ways how the performing arts help support wellbeing: 


The movement in dance, musical theatre and music lessons (including singing and drumming) pump the endorphins round the body. It’s hard not to feel better when you’ve got involved in one of our classes! Also, being creative through choreography, musical pieces and acting/singing has a huge positive impact on mood and provides a new way to communicate and vent feelings.


Whether it’s learning a piece in the studio or performing and sharing the skills on stage or at an event, Roynon students improve their confidence levels. It is widely known that some of the most amazing stage performers are actually shy and introverted in real life, which proves that performing arts can really help bring people out of their shell!

Encouraging social interaction

The performing arts offer opportunities for students of all ages to come together in a safe and nurturing community setting and is like nothing else! Performing arts get people away from their TV/phone screens and places them in a positive and focused environment, where they can build social skills. Research shows that real life face-to-face group engagement such as dance, music or drama classes improves overall mood.

Emotional intelligence

The performing arts all offer a platform in which to see life through a different lens. The portrayal of characters and emotions all help students increase their level of empathy and awareness of others. It also provides moments in which a student can take a step away from the stresses and strains of life and have a time to reflect. 

Roynon Performing Arts is one of the South’s leading creative arts schools and has supported 10,000s of students of all ages and abilities since its formation decades ago. Roynon provides outstanding performance opportunities and a creative, challenging and safe studio environment in which to progress in skills and make friends.
