The teachers at the Gemma Short School of Dance & Theatre Arts are certified professionals, who you will find to be enthusiastic and helpful.
Our ethos is on promoting the skills of dance and theatre arts through fun and dynamic classes. We will support students who want to enter ISTD or LAMDA examinations and regularly enter students in local, regional and national competiive festivals, and give them opportunities to showcase their skills in various shows and performances.
Our teachers are all highly experienced performers themselves and can offer advice and guidance to parents and students about all aspects of dance and theatre arts, and help to assist you in all aspects of your training programme. Our personalised approach always ensures students receive the highest standard of support and training.
All our teachers have a full Enhanced DBS check.
