Applications are now open for our Summer Performing Arts Course 2019 taking place from 27 - 30 August 2019 in Arnold. 

As part of Flying High's 20th Anniversary celebrations, we are providing this 4-day course at a low cost of £40.00 in total, the equivalent of £10.00 a day. 

The first three days will be based at Pond Hills Lane Community Centre, Arnold, NG5 8DR from 10.00am - 3.00pm and on Friday 30 August from 10.00am - 12.15pm before lunch and moving to the Bonington Theatre for a tech rehearsal from 1.00pm and a performance starting at 3.00pm. 

We will be using a selection of starting points for the groups to explore and engage with all focusing on the last 20 years since 1999, the year that Flying High began. We will be using Dance, Drama and maybe some Song/Music to create a short piece of theatre for the performance on Friday 30 August. 

Comments from our Summer Project 2018: 

'I wanted to say a huge thanks on behalf of my daughter and her friend as they had such a great week and wished the play was over more than one night'

'We were really moved by the simplicity of the performance last Friday, particularly as it was so poignant and the children were so engaged and enthusiastic'

'The dancing and story telling were so well delivered and smiling faces said it all'

'Thanks again as it ended the long holiday on a high!'

'Can I sign my daughter up for the next one now please??!! She had such a great time and I thought the final performance was breathtaking at times. There was a tear in my eye on more than one occasion - not just the ones involving my daughter either!' 

'Although my daughter has taken part in lots of different performances to date, none of them have been able to help her demonstrate her abilities quite as much as I feel that 'Then and Now' did. Perhaps that is because she is developing and gaining confidence all the time anyway, but we were incredibly proud of her!' 

'We just wanted to say how much my daughter enjoyed the Summer Course & how well the performance was considering they had only attended for a few days! A real testament to the hard work put in from all involved!'

'I really enjoyed the Then And Now collection of pieces. The children had covered such a lot in only a week and they were dealing with some important historical issues. I’m sure their understanding of life before technology and the hardships of post war life has been made very real to them. Thanks for creating such a constructive and fun course'
