Guernsey's premiere dance and theatre school
We pride ourselves on being a drama academy and dance school centre of excellence where a high technical standard is our goal whilst ensuring everyone has lots of fun. We have a team of qualified teachers who, between them have attained many years of dance and drama teaching and performing experience.
The Centre is a well established theatre arts and dance school offering a busy and exciting programme in dance through the syllabi of the ISTD, and LAMDA for drama and musical theatre. Our success in dance exams is second to none with pupils of all ages achieving a full pass rate over the many years the dance school has been teaching.
We can also claim huge success in staging our own musical theatre productions all fully cast from our talented pupils. Past shows include; 'Bugsy Malone', 'Peter Pan', 'Seussical' and 'Back to The 80's', which showcased the students talents and professionalism to immeasurable effect.
We offer other regular stage performing opportunities through the Guernsey Eisteddfod, dance festivals, charity performances, summer school showcases, One Act plays and musicals. We also host a very popular Summer School in August each year for both Guernsey & Jersey students where visiting West End performers, TV actors, and Commercial dance experts provide a week's course for our budding young stars. Plus we have been taking a large number of our students to the Dance World Cup competition for the last few years - these have included competing in Jersey, Sardinia, Paris and Austria and our students have brought home a great deal of medals!
