Harlequin Arts Academy opened in 1998 and offered classes in a local hall. In 2020 we moved into our current premises and offer classes 3 days of the week. We hold at least 2 examination sessions each year and we are a registered centre with AQA. We hold annual shows at local theatres and all students are able to take part. We regularly hold workshops and masterclasses with guest teachers and lecturers. We pride ourselves in offering a very high standard of training, our examination results speak for themselves.
Whatever age or stage they may have reached, students who study with Harlequin Arts Academy can be confident that they are receiving the most comprehensive and well structured programme of Theatre arts available. They can be sure that they will be taught according to safe teaching principles. Harlequin Arts Academy offers dance classes with ISTD and RAD qualified teachers. Examinations can be taken from the age of 5.
Examinations are a memorable experience and present an opportunity for students to show their work and allow them to be evaluated by professional examiners. Examinations are not mandatory, they are here for students who wish to gain certification in their level. Success in examinations coming at the peak of a period of steady commitment will bring a great sense of achievement and increased self esteem to a student as well as a great sense of pride to his or her family.
The most important consideration is to provide the very best training. When taught correctly, dance develops confidence, co ordination, improves poor posture, promotes self discipline and encourages good grooming. All this whilst having FUN!!
