We specialise in holiday courses for children aged 9 to 14 years old, in the heart of Loire Valley in France. The courses take place in a family setting, with a maximum of 6 participants per course. Our aim is to share our passion for the Performing Arts.

Children are hosted in a large country house in the Loir et Cher (Région Centre). They sleep in cosy, colourful dormitories, one for boys and one for girls, both equipped with libraries containing French and English books.

Days are filled with fun, purposeful creative workshops, country or village walks, games, daydreaming, free play and a participation to small everyday household duties. Children have a playroom which leads to a large secure garden.

The aim of the stay is to make a short film or write a songs and make a video for it. At the end of their course,participants take digital files of their work (wav, mp3, mp4 depending on the project they have worked on).
