Performance based learning in dance, singing and acting for 3-14 year olds

Sharpe Academy is a performance Academy with a mission to bring out the very best in children of all ages. We help our students realise their true potential by building up confidence, encouraging their imagination, improving speech and enhancing social skills through performance-based learning.

Be a Sharpe Performer

Students who attend our Musical Theatre classes study and develop skills in Acting, Singing, Dance and Performance. Many of our students go on to work professionally as both child and adult performers.

You’ll be amazed to see how your son or daughter improves crucial skills such as presentation, concentration and posture in addition to acting, singing & dance techniques.

The final goal of our classes is to shape, nurture and guide successful individuals to face their future with confidence as a result of the essential life skills learnt at Sharpe Academy.
