All of our teaching staff whether resident or guest, continue to work regularly in the Performing Arts ensuring that all teaching and training is relevant and in line with today’s demanding industry. We are passionate about working with young people in the Blackpool and Fylde area and take enormous pride in the development of their social, emotional and creative education.
ACADEME Dance and Movement classes are inclusive for all ability levels. Our teachers create and choreograph fun, exciting and engaging movement pieces and routines that encourage young performers to develop their technique in a fun, supportive and creative atmosphere. Exploring dance and movement allows our students to build confidence in their own physicality and presence whilst finding their own unique style.
ACADEME Acting classes take students on a journey that explores lots of different theatrical forms and performance techniques. Our classes are fun and engaging and subtly develop skills in other areas including stagecraft, positive collaboration, confidence building and emotional resilience. From improvisation to physical theatre, Shakespeare to TV and Film, we offer exciting classes to grab everyone’s attention.
ACADEME vocal classes actively develop music theory, rhythm and pitching through group and solo singing, harmony and performance skills. Our pupils enjoy singing and performing songs across a wide range of genres from musical theatre to contemporary pop. Special attention is given to ensuring that young voices are cared for as they develop by embedding warm up and other techniques into each session. We celebrate both solo and group performances championing the strength of performing in an ensemble as well as taking center stage in the power of the spotlight.
