Welcome to The Academy

The Academy has been providing a supportive environment for children and young people to learn about dance and the performing arts for over fifteen years.

Expert Tuition


The Academy is jointly owned by Amy Appleton and Sarah Cosgrove – our Directors – but it takes a whole host of important people to keep everything going here and to get our productions to the stage. We have a great network of teachers, helpers, chaperones and not forgetting our awesome receptionists who you’ll see behind the front desk! 


We have a reputation for all-round excellence and dedicate our time to giving everyone the opportunity to learn and enjoy all aspects of performance. 


Our students come first and many of them have also gone on to enjoy success in the world of dance and musical theatre.

Modern Facilities


We bought our studios on St Albans Road in December 2015 and we completely renovated our facilities in order to provide the best environment possible for our students.


The Academy has three large studios, several music rooms and breakout areas and suitable changing rooms.


In Summer 2022, The Academy was completely redecorated in line with it’s rebranding to encompass the black and royal blue colour scheme.
