Jigsaw Performing Arts Schools: Building Confidence, Having Fun
New year, new term
With summer now a distant memory and winter just around the corner, the January term is not far away… and what better way to kick-off 2017 than with drama, singing and dance classes for 3-18 year olds?
The benefits of the performing arts for children
From improvisation and choreographed dance to drama games and script-work, a varied performing arts schedule provides a wide array of benefits to children and teenagers and is an enjoyable weekend activity.
Jigsaw Performing Arts Schools have been offering performing arts classes for over 20 years. With locations across London and the Home Counties offering annual shows, a professional agency and excellent tutors all trained by Jigsaw, children are given the opportunity to build confidence, self-awareness and social skills whilst having enormous amounts of fun in a friendly and welcoming environment.
The Business Award for Arts and Creative Services
2016 has been an incredibly exciting year for everybody at Jigsaw Arts. Earlier this year, Jigsaw was shortlisted for the regional heats of the HSBC/Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards, and Jigsaw is currently a finalist for The Business Award for Arts and Creative Services at the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
Company Director, Nicola Lander, said: "Words cannot describe how thrilled I am that Jigsaw is a finalist at this year's National Business Awards. My company has come such a long way over the last 20 years and I am incredibly proud of my team's hard-work and commitment. We are all absolutely delighted to have received such an accolade, and we are extremely excited about what the rest of the year has in store." The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories; the Jigsaw team have given their live presentation to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.
Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.
Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this year’s awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
Jigsaw Arts Management
Alongside this incredible achievement, Jigsaw’s agency: Jigsaw Arts Management has seen Theo Grant take to the stage playing Young Simba in The Lion King. Theo has been having the most amazing experience of performing at the Lyceum Theatre in the heart of London’s West End. Theo told Jigsaw: “I believed in myself and look what has happened... I'm in the Lion King! This is my dream come true and I'm going to love every minute of it!”
