Welcome to THE LEAD ACADEMY for Dance & Musical Theatre.

The LEAD Academy is a training organisation offering high quality performing arts education programmes. We work with professional artists and highly trained teachers within Conservatoires, Dance Schools and Performing Arts Studios across the country.

The LEAD Academy offers our learners a unique and exciting learning experience to study, train and perform daily within professional dance studios alongside highly qualified and experienced dance teachers within the industry.

The 2 year, full time education programme will provide our learners with amazing progression opportunities such as university degree programmes or audition directly for advanced training in the dance industry to specialist schools.

Under the leadership and guidance of our fully qualified teachers, learners will work towards a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Dance or Musical Theatre (equivalent to 3 A-levels) depending on the learners chosen career pathway.

The Lead Academy prides itself on working with high quality education partners who will support learners with their academic studies and professional dance & musical theatre training.

“We believe that all learners have the opportunity to succeed with us and achieve. We are a student centered organisation and will support, challenge and guide all our learners to maximise their potential and help secure their future career aspirations.

We will do this by exposing our learners to high quality and expert teaching within the dance and musical theatre industry. Learners will work, train and perform alongside these experts on a daily basis throughout this unique learner journey within The Lead Academy”
