River Studios is proud to be the home of the Southampton Pop Academy, who have been coaching 7-16 year olds in the art of Pop Performance for over 13 years.
The Southampton Pop Academy looks to develop children’s confidence and ability whilst they learning to sing and dance in a fun and engaging environment. Each week we work through popular songs, learning to sing and perform exciting and creative routines. The Pop Academy works with every individual, to recognise their strengths whilst developing all areas.
Southampton Pop Academy hold rehearsals each Saturday morning from 9.30am-1.30pm at River Studios. For those wanting to get involved, come along on Saturday or please contact us.
Working with professional singing and dance coaches, the children work in both small groups, separately and collectively to give a full 360-degree experience. Leading towards performing to the public (optional) at various points in the year for that full stage experience. The Southampton Pop Academy also have the opportunity to record in the recording studio, gaining valuable studio experience; leading towards an exciting annual album to show off the progress gained throughout the year!
