Opened in 2013 by its Principal Sam Riley, The Academy is based in a purpose built dance studio in Arnold. The studio has a sprung floor, mirrors and ballet barres. We also have a large waiting area and viewing window for parents to watch our classes.

Our aim is to offer expert tuition led by qualified industry professionals in Ballet, Tap, Acrobatics, Street, Lyrical, Jazz, and Musical Theatre.  All classes take place in a fun and safe environment where pupils can learn the techniques of the Performing Arts industry but also build confidence, encourage creativity, enhance social skills and make new friends. 

As well as our weekly classes, we also offer many exciting opportunities including, examinations, competitions, festivals,workshops, performances and annual showcases. 

There really is something for everyone @ The Academy whether you’re a budding performer or you merely want to come for fun!
