Our History

dance, drama and singing classes for children

Jittabugs Theatre School offers dance, drama and singing classes for children aged 18 months-16 years and is the sister company of the award winning company Jittabugs.

Caroline Ashworth founded Jittabugs  in 2008, after having trained and worked as a professional performer. She gained a Btec national Diploma in Performing Arts and then a Diploma in Dance & Drama at The Merseyside Dance & Drama Centre.

Having gained her dance teacher qualifications, Caroline therefore enjoyed an exciting career in the arts working on TV, Theatre, Theme Parks, Holiday Centre’s and Hotels. As a result of gaining this knowledge and experience, she consequently decided to open a theatre school which won her an award with the Princes Trust.

In June 2008 Caroline became a mummy and opened up Jittabugs Pre-School Activities & Dance. Children are now enjoying Jittabugs classes across the UK and even in Sri Lanka.

In 2015 Caroline launched Jittabugs Theatre School (JTS). Those who attend JTS classes are able to enjoy them from 18 months up to 16 years and we welcome children from all kind of backgrounds, including those with physical disabilities. All of our classes are led by teachers who come from a performing arts background. In addition, the school is also available as a franchise, so if you have a background in performing arts you could even run your own Jittabugs Theatre School!
