About Rising Aspirations

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’.
