At Noodle Performance Arts, we are passionate about performing arts and dance and we want the children who come to our classes and workshops to love them as much as we do. Children learn best when they are enjoying themselves so the focus of all our sessions is to have fun.
Our story began in September 2011 when Noodle’s founder and managing director Nikki Johnson realised lots of young people wanted the opportunity to dance, act and sing without having to take stressful exams or wear a strict uniform.
Nikki decided to start her own classes which offered a more relaxed and affordable alternative to most traditional stage and dance schools and valued children of all abilities. Noodle Performance Arts started life as a small performing arts class for preschool children at Beighton Lifestyle Centre, Sheffield.
The informal approach and high quality teaching soon proved to be a success and in 2012 Noodle won the Netmums award for best preschool classes in Sheffield.
Now the business has expanded to cater for a wider age range and classes are taught in venues all over Sheffield and Rotherham, as well as expanding to other areas of the UK.
Nikki says: “Children have very few inhibitions and a wonderful ability to throw themselves into creative activities. I hope to inspire them and give them the confidence to express themselves through music and movement.”
Noodle also offers children’s party entertainment with a range of themed packages including princess, pirate and superhero parties.
