The Saturday Academy classes run each week during term time for students aged 4 - 14 years.

Performance classes in dance, drama, musical theatre and singing last for one hour for Junior and Inters Students and 45 minutes for Minis.  

We follow the 'Dancing with a Difference' syllabus for our younger students including the Tots and Tinies Mother and Baby classes.

Students have a variety of performance opportunities throughout the year and a whole school showcase at the end of the academic year.

Our staff members are all highly experienced and qualified practitioners who inspire and motive our students.  Each member of the team has an enhanced DBS, Safeguarding, First Aid and Covid-Awareness Training.  We are committed to the protection and safeguarding of our students.

Academy students are required to wear a CMA uniform T-shirt and/or Hoodie and suitable dance attire with correct footwear for all dance or movement based classes.

Uniform can be purchased through our shop.
