Jigsaw Performing Arts in London

  1. Jigsaw was established in 1995 with a desire to pass on the joy of performing arts. The belief in the benefits of performing arts activities for children was the driving force in the creation of Jigsaw and the reason why Jigsaw has continued to grow and become a well established and high quality provider of children’s classes. Jigsaw has a team of dedicated and enthusiastic professionals who are committed to delivering fun and exciting dance, drama and singing classes.

    Our teachers work in the performing arts industry and have passed our rigorous training programme and have a DBS check.

    Every student can benefit, in some way, from the performing arts. While some join us to build a firm foundation for a professional performance career, others do so to unlock their hidden talents, overcome their shyness or increase their confidence and social skills. However, what all students enjoy is having fun through drama, singing and dance classes, while making lots of new friends.

    If you’ve not been involved in anything like the performing arts before, we offer a two-week trial to all new students. So come along and see for yourself – I hope you enjoy Jigsaw Performing Arts School

    This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.

    • Marina, Mum to a son (11) and a daughter (9). Ware

      Both of my children go to Jigsaw Performing Arts. We have been going for around five years now. I think It's great for confidence building - a big plus. My son was really good in the school play. All the staff are very welcoming, friendly, really relaxed and great with the children. It's the little things they do like being happy to take care of the children if I've had to drop them off a bit early. The children do singing, acting and dancing and take part in shows. They like acting, and my daughter really likes getting the scripts and singing. Jigsaw Performing Arts is fun for both of them!

      The kallikids reputation
    • Julia, Mum to Theo (8) and Jace (6 months). Northolt.

      The teachers at Jigsaw are really friendly. My son, Theo has been going to Jigsaw once a week for six years now. He is a real all-rounder and loves singing, dancing and drama. Theo absolutely loves Jigsaw and looks forward to going. I've seen a really noticeable progression and the teachers work hard to achieve this. The report which Jigsaw produce shows how well the teachers really know the children. They have noticed that Theo has a real gift and recommended he joins their Agency, from which he has already done a short film and had auditions!

      The kallikids reputation
    • Richard, Dad to Chloe (17), Sam (12) and Georgia (8). Whetstone.

      All three of my children have been to Jigsaw Performing Arts. For my daughter, Chloe drama, singing and dancing at Jigsaw has been her thing since the age of 5 years old. I really like that no matter what the age or ability of the children Jigsaw bring out the best in them, building their confidence and giving them the experience of performing. Nicola, the Principal at Jigsaw has absolute exacting standards. She spends a lot of time getting the right people and all of the teachers over the years have the same Jigsaw ethos. I would recommend Jigsaw Performing Arts to anyone and have done, many times!

    • Silvia, mum of Francesca (10) and Olivia (5) in London

      Both my girls attend Jigsaw Winchmore Hill and they love it. It has done wonders for their confidence. The staff are great. I can't thank the team enough for their support and encouragement to both girls.
      Highly recommend them.

  5. Nicola Lander - Company Director

    Nicola Lander Company Director As a child I attended a weekend performing arts school in Bristol (my home town) and this was my inspiration. I knew then that I wanted to spend my life in the performing arts, and later attended Mountview Theatre School. Following my graduation I went on to act professionally for several years in theatre and television, both of which I enjoyed immensely. My training had transformed my life and inspired me to set up Jigsaw Arts in 1995. Over the years, my belief in the benefits of performing arts in education has been proved time and time again. The Performing Arts arena fully complements the students’ school lives by giving them the confidence and social skills to achieve their full potential in what is now a very competitive world. Now I have my own two children I fully understand the benefits first hand. The performing arts have something to offer everyone, and we find that students attend Jigsaw Arts for a variety of reasons. Some are very ambitious and wish to work professionally in the business, and it gives me great pleasure to watch children unlock their natural talents and to guide them into their chosen career. It’s also heart warming to see an initially shy student find the courage to stand up on stage and deliver lines at the end of term show. Parents have told me that their children had shown greater confidence and become more socially integrated as a direct result of the course. For all our students, Jigsaw Arts is enormous fun and provides a great opportunity to make new friends. If you’ve not been involved in anything like the performing arts before, we offer a two-week trial to all new students. So come along and see for yourself – I hope you enjoy Jigsaw Performing Arts School.
