What is yorkie puds?

Following the huge success of York Stage School which launched four years ago, together with the clear demand for us to offer classes to children under the age of 4 we are proud to launch our Yorkie Puds classes for all children from newborn to 3 years. 

Led by York Stage School tutor, Danielle, the Yorkie Puds classes will immerse our youngest stars in a world of positive creativity that will help them develop the skills they need to truly rise.  


Meet Danielle

Having performed and entertained children in York for over a decade as part of Berwick Kaler's panto family at York Theatre Royal, Danielle eventually settled down with her husband a few years ago in the city as they began to plan for their own children. Since then Danielle has been a much loved tutor at York Stage School. With her boundless positivity and joy, coupled with an passion for children's development, she really does know how to engage children of all ages.

Danielle gave birth to her beautiful daughter in the Summer of 2021. Being a new Mum, in a city where she had no close friends with babies, she soon realised she wanted to work with York Stage School to create a new range of classes that give parents a place where they do not feel isolated. It is Danielle's hope that the classes will not only allow parents and guardians to work with their children on sensory skills, that will develop over their journey onto more performance led activities, but also give them a space where they can get to know each other and feel part of a community.

Exploring nursery rhymes through physical movement, ballet and tap for babies and allowing your little ones to gain confidence through performance.
