My eldest daughter Ellarose attended the 'Matilda workshop' which although was ran by zoom meetings due to the restrictions in place at the time she absolutely loved it. It's nice to see the school now open and in such an accessible place in chester. The building is so well equipped for the children and attendees of classes. Joanne along with all the teachers are amazing at what they do, Ellarose has grown even more in confidence and from being slightly timid at the start the teachers brought out the very best in her, she gave everything to her assigned role. The academy is an asset to Chester and offers a wide range of activities, classes and hire for events & more. Please go see what's on offer - I highly recommend Joanne and the team. 5*
MAPA has been an amazing experience for our 8 year old daughter. She has been taking classes for 2 years now, started off at the agency and then on to the school, which is an a amazing set up. Her lessons consist of piano, voice and musical theatre on a Saturday. The teachers are amazing with kids here, Chloe Joanne and Mair have excelled my daughters confidence. Joanne goes above and beyond for her team and the kids at the school, which such passion. Great communication even at 11pm (sorry, panicked mum haha) My daughter was immediately welcomed with enthusiasm from the moment she walked through the door. They really took the time to ask about our daughter and her interests in order to match her up with the right instructors for her. It has been a perfect fit! She looks forward to her multiple lessons every week. They also offer a low key, no pressure chance to perform twice a year. The office is well managed and organised. In the time we've been at the school, they've had the same instructors, which gives consistency to the kids and also shows that they treat their employees well. I recommend this school to anyone I know interested in the arts.
They are a fabulous dance and drama school, they are fully inclusive and every child gets to audition for the shows. Miss Joanne adores the kids and everything she does is always about them. Chloe has come on so much with her skills but also her confidence since September.
MAPA is an amazing school, they have such a family feel as soon as you walk through the door. I have 2 children that attend different classes and they are different in personality, which was a concern for me, but the teachers are fabulous whether your child is a bit shy or very confident. I cannot thank you enough for the way my shy little 7 yr old is now dancing, singing and acting with confidence and my super confident 11 yr old you have helped to calm and refine his love of musical theatre in each of the disciplines...the improvement is simply amazing. Would recommend to any age and ability
MAPA is an excellent academy for training and education for my children. Such a personal touch. My daughter had lost her passion for acting following some very poor teachers and how she was treated in another school. However since being at MAPA my daughter has flourished and she’s absolutely shining! I can’t thank you enough for giving my daughter back her confidence, you have truly empowered her. As to my son he has found the love of musical theatre, he has learnt his craft and gained experience working with current and past industry professionals and has an amazing time on each and every class. Majestic the agency, MAPA's sister company also landed my son the part Scrooge on stage, unfortunately this has been cancelled due to the Pandemic. Strongly recommend.
We found majestic by chance when looking for a holiday club which in itself was very nurturing and fun. My daughter has danced for some years and was already part of an established musical theatre group. My daughter asked if she could try the classes and the high standard of teaching was immediately evident. There is individual goal setting recognising individual skills and potential as opposed to trying to fit a child into one box. Miss Chloe has advanced my daughter's dancing at pace. It really is a one stop shop for all things dance and music which provides a child with choice and an individual pathway. Miss Joanne is so nurturing, which is very reassuring.
