Founded in 2010, Rising Aspirations is proud to offer a number of sessions covering a variety of performance disciplines for children and adults.
Skills for life, not just the stage… Rising Aspirations teaches life-long skills that will be used by students for years to come.
Why We're Unique
We understand that not all students attend sessions to become a famous West End superstar! That’s the reason we encourage friendship, communication and self-belief – skills for life!
Rising Aspirations is a great way to get to know new people whilst learning skills for the stage. Major Productions help gain experience in performing which has helped me get to where I am today.
Meet the Principal
As an incredibly shy and introverted young child, I struggled to even look at other children and adults. At the age of seven, I joined a children’s choir followed by a drama club. This then led to piano lessons, dance classes, and a general love for the Performing Arts! I have no doubt whatsoever that these groups and clubs were the reason for my growth in confidence and self-assurance. Hence why I am so passionate about Rising Aspirations and its mission statement – skills for life, not just the stage…
In 2010, having taught Drama and Singing to children for several years, I decided to launch Rising Aspirations Academy of Performing Arts. Since then, student numbers have continuously grown, and more and more sessions have been added to the timetable. I am very proud of Rising Aspirations and all it has achieved. The students mean the world to me, and witnessing their progress is the most rewarding thing in the world! As somebody once said, ‘love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life’.

Confidence and 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.
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.
Through quality tuition, students learn effective rehearsal techniques. Staging and the art of theatre performance is taught by staff and students from every session are included in our annual Major Production – it’s usually the highlight of the year!
