“It was a real pinch-me moment. I had tears in my eyes. I always thought those Disney quotes about ‘dreams coming true’ were just fantasy. They’re really not. To hold a passion that you worked on for over twenty years is just pure magic. As a child, I always imagined seeing my book in shops. Never did I believe it would actually happen. I have to keep telling myself, “You did it, Lisa. You did it.” – Lisa Wakely, Jigsaw Chelmsford

Jigsaw Chelmsford Performing Arts teacher Lisa has become an author for the very first time and we asked her how the experience has been so far! Read more on our blog here: https://www.jigsaw-arts.co.uk/jigsaw-chelmsford-performing-arts-teacher-lisa-is-an-author/

A moment shared by Becky at Jigsaw Oxford!

Their teacher, Tulsi, asked them to write down a goal for this term. Something they want to focus on, improve or at least just give a try.

The answers were brilliant! All confidential of course 🙂. But it reminds me how Jigsaw is a space for these young people to get out of their comfort zones and grow. And that makes us so proud!

Our Story

Jigsaw Performing Arts is dedicated to developing performance skills, promoting self-expression and building confidence.

Jigsaw was established in 1995 with a desire to pass on the joy of performing arts. The belief in the benefits of performing arts activities for children was the driving force in the creation of Jigsaw and the reason why Jigsaw has continued to grow and become a well established and high quality provider of children’s classes. Jigsaw has a team of dedicated and enthusiastic professionals who are committed to delivering fun and exciting dance, drama and singing classes.

Our teachers work in the performing arts industry and have passed our rigorous training programme and have a DBS check.

Every student can benefit, in some way, from the performing arts. While some join us to build a firm foundation for a professional performance career, others do so to unlock their hidden talents, overcome their shyness or increase their confidence and social skills. However, what all students enjoy is having fun through drama, singing and dance classes, while making lots of new friends.
