Our History

performing arts classes in Taunton

Jittabugs Theatre School offers dance, drama and singing classes in Taunton for children aged 18 months-16 years. We are 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, 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 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 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 strong performing arts background.
