Razzamataz Theatre Schools are delighted to announce that from summer 2017, their popular performing arts classes will be available to holiday makers at two of the Eurocamp holiday parcs in France.
Eurocamp offers a huge choice of camping holidays across more than 180 sites in ten European countries and is a hugely popular choice for families with young children, due to the amount of exciting activities that are on offer.
Currently, Eurocamp offers a variety of activities for children but this will be the first time that performing arts is available at two of their largest parcs in the Cote D’Azure and Paris regions, an exciting addition to the holidays.
“We are delighted to be bringing our brand of performing arts to Eurocamp and are looking forward to introducing more children and young people to the joys of singing, dancing and acting,” says Denise Hutton-Gosney, MD and Founder of Razzamataz. “There are so many benefits that come from participating in performing arts; from increased confidence through to teamwork and life skills but what we want mostly is to provide holidaymakers with a fantastic and fun experience and a chance to make new friends.”
Razzamataz was selected as the performing arts provider thanks to its reputation both in the UK and overseas. Having been established for more than 16 years, ten of those includes providing performing arts classes for First Choice Holiday Villages throughout Europe, Razzamataz can draw on a wealth of experience to make the Eurocamp experience wonderful for children and their families.
Razzamataz and Eurocamp are offering three different clubs for different age ranges of holidaymakers: Mini Learn to Dance, Star Academy and Street Dance.
Children holidaying in the two Eurocamp parcs will be taking part in three two-hour sessions of dance, drama and singing ending in a short presentation for their family on the main stage. There will be classes for all children and teens from the age of one upwards.
Mini Learn to Dance is the perfect environment for the youngest holidaymakers to have fun singing and dancing and making new friends. This club is for two age groups – Tots aged 1-3 and Minis aged 3- 5 years. Both groups will enjoy a fun-packed 1-hour session of dancing, singing and imaginative play based around jungle, circus and farm themes.
Older pre-schoolers aged 3-5 can go it alone for a magical experience with lots of encouragement to try a variety of performing skills using modern pop and musical theatre styles.
“These active classes will encourage physical development, explore imaginations and allow your little ones to become confident, capable and self-assured individuals whilst having a great time,” says Denise. “Every child is unique therefore our classes are consistently high quality allowing every child to progress at their own rate.”
Star Academy will be split into two groups: age 4 to 9 and 9-17 and they will explore both musical theatre and the commercial genres of the performing arts. Once again they will be encouraged to learn new skills whilst having fun and making new friends.
There is also a Street Dance group for children age 4 upwards, which is a popular part of the curriculum in the UK.
“Offering a wide range of performing arts styles means that children get the chance to find out what they love and hopefully it can inspire them to try something different,” adds Denise. “It’s lovely when we get customer feedback saying how much they enjoyed the Razzamataz classes overseas and many go on to sign up for one of our UK schools.”
After they complete the course, they all get a certificate as a memento of their time, and for many of them, this will be the first opportunity they have had to try out performing arts.
The feedback from the overseas schools has been incredibly positive and when children have returned to the UK many have said how in just a few lessons their confidence was boosted.
“I really enjoyed Razzamataz and will take the experience of it all back with me,” says holiday maker Beth, age 11. “I loved doing every show. You have really inspired me to have confidence.”
Over the next few months, Razzamataz will be looking to recruit the best teachers to work with the children in the Eurocamp resorts.
There are almost 50 Razzamataz schools throughout the UK with new schools opening every year. The Dragons’ Den backed theatre school franchise offers exceptional part-time training in dance, drama and singing together with exciting opportunities to perform. Classes are for children from age two to 18 and allow students to experience a range of performance styles from classic West End musical theatre to street dance and pop singing.
Razzamataz is actively looking to open further schools across the UK and in particular Aberdeen and Cardiff. The team will be holding regular Discovery Den days, which give people the opportunity to meet the Head Office team and find out more about this franchise opportunity.
