Every child is important to us
Step into a world of performance, learning and excitement at Expressions Academy of Performing Arts.
Choosing the right dance school is probably one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make.
At EPA we aim to give you the best possible training in all disciplines of the Performing Arts along with full support to each student to help you realise your full potential to blossom and prosper.
We offer full and rounded education whilst teaching life skills to build confidence and stretch imagination and also nurturing shy and apprehensive children to find their feet whilst channelling energy, enthusiasm and talent.
Covering all forms of dance, acting and singing, we have classes and private tuition suitable for all ages, abilities and budget.
With us, you can learn new skills, have fun, take exams, get involved in shows and competitions if you wish and if you have dreams of pursuing a career in performing arts we can help you to achieve that.
We are registered with I.D.T.A. and Trinity Guildhall to offer exams in all subjects of dance, singing and acting. Or if you prefer just to come along to have fun and keep fit each week, that is also fine.
Whatever your expectations you can be sure our fully qualified, caring and professional staff at Expressions are able to suit your needs, with the reassurance that your child is in safe hands.
All of our staff are fully CRB checked which safeguards your children in all aspects, they are also fully first aid trained and hold certification.
We hold an annual show at The Palace Theatre Mansfield in August each year where all pupils are able to take part which is an exciting experience for everyone involved.
Pupils also have the opportunity to take part in the full time Academy’s show in June each year along with a Musical Theatre production in December.
