A Dragons' Den backed theatre school will open to Wakefield students this week - and you could be in with a chance to win classes free for the first half term.

Razzamataz Theatre Schools first rose to public attention during an appearance on the BBC's Dragons' Den in 2007, where they were backed by Scottish entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne.

They have since opened part time theatre schools across the country, providing performing arts education to students from the age of 4 to 18.

And a new branch of the school will open in Wakefield this week, offering classes in dance, drama and singing, and offering education in musical styles from musical theatre to street dance.

Helen Mayes, principal of Razzamataz in Wakefield, said: "Nurturing young talent and building up a child’s confidence and self-esteem is a big part of what we do at Razzamataz.

“We teach the children a mix of commercial street dance and musical theatre, so they get to experience the very best of what the performing arts has to offer.”

Razzamataz will hold an open day at West Wakefield Methodist Church on Saturday, September 5, before moving to a permanent home at Kettlethorpe High School on October 3.

Free trial sessions are on offer for new students, and the school are also offering a free half term of lessons to one student, picked at random from the first 50 completed registration forms.
