"If you have a little star we will make them shine"
Expressions Academy of Performing Arts was established in 2003, following the success of its founding dance school, The Children’s Performing Arts School, in 1989. The academy’s patrons are actress, singer and TV-star Samantha Womack (Nee Janus) and actor and musical theatre star Ben Richards. Our philosophy is to provide first-class training in the performing arts in a supportive and state-of-the-art environment.
Covering all forms of dance, acting and singing, we have classes and private tuition suitable for all ages, abilities and budget. With us, you can learn news skills, have fun, take exams, get involved in shows and competitions if you wish and if you have dreams of pursuing a career in performing arts we can help you to achieve that.
We are registered with I.D.T.A. and Trinity Guildhall to offer exams in all subjects of dance, singing and acting. Or if you prefer just to come along to have fun and keep fit each week, that is also fine. Whatever your expectations you can be sure our fully qualified, caring and professional staff at Expressions are able to suit your needs, with the reassurance that your child is in safe hands. All of our staff are fully CRB checked which safeguards your children in all aspects, they are also fully first aid trained and hold certification.
We hold an annual show at The Palace Theatre Mansfield in August each year where all pupils are able to take part which is an exciting experience for everyone involved.
Pupils also have the opportunity to take part in the full time Academy’s show in June each year along with a Musical Theatre production in December.
