Meet the Principal!

Rising Aspirations Academy of Performing Arts was launched in 2010 to provide a unique blend of performing arts training with life-long skills, such as building confidence, team work skills and communication for children aged 3 - 18 years.

I am blown away by the continued improvements and growth of our students over the past ten years through their time with us. Through drama, dance and singing lessons, we strive to nurture, encourage and support students, providing them with "skills for life, not just the stage!"

We are passionate about developing talent through high quality performing arts tuition, but also encouraging motivated, dedicated and supportive students who learn to interact, express and communicate. Students take part in weekly classes, annual full-scale productions, concerts, trips, holiday clubs and workshops! Witnessing the progress of these life-changing skills, is the most rewarding thing in the world!

Confidence & Self-Belief

With praise, encouragement and motivation from teachers, students are able to grow in confidence. This is the central objective of Rising Aspirations and reflects our mission statement perfectly.

Communication Skills

Students of all ages learn how to communicate effectively and speak in front of an audience. Participation in group discussions is always praised. Students are encouraged to offer ideas during sessions and are taught to negotiate and compromise during group tasks.

Performance Expertise

Through quality tuition, students learn effective rehearsal techniques and work towards full-scale musical productions, concerts and showcases. Staging and the art of theatre performance is taught by staff and students from every session are included across all our performances. Students develop skills for the stage and thrive when performing! !
