At Pure Rhythm our aim is to develop the students confidence in a fun, lively, stimulating way whatever their ability. We want to share the magic, enthusiasm and passion that we all have for the Arts, engaging the students in body and mind in a exhilarating way. All staff are professional performers or ex-performers who enjoy sharing their wealth of experience. From students that come for fun, to students that follow it as a career 'Pure Rhythm feels like a big family' say many of the students.
Pure Rhythm School Of Performing Arts started 11 years ago. Classes are run by experienced, professional, qualified teachers and performers, with a variety of guest teachers coming in from West End shows. Pure Rhythm School Of Performing Arts put on a large production once a year involving all students from the main school. During the year students take part in local shows, displays, events and are encouraged to audition for shows locally in Cambridge or in London. In summer Pure Rhythm runs a summer course for a week with a performance on the last day.
Pure Rhythm goes into schools in Cambridge and Essex providing dance within their productions and classes after school or within school time alongside the National Curriculum.
