At The JPA Academy, we know that confidence and self-belief are fundamentally important to a child’s well-being. Through supportive, creative and fun classes in the Performing Arts, we have been able to help the most timid children to find their voice, and the most extravert personalities to develop their skills and become outstanding performers.

We run classes in Acting, Singing and Dance, in three age groups, each group covering an extensive curriculum, including Musical Theatre, Acting for Camera, Shakespeare, modern dramatists, stage combat, vocal technique and singing solo, dance, movement, staging and ensemble work.

Our teachers are experts in their field and are passionate about their specialism. We have successfully managed to translate our unique teaching and expertise Online during the pandemic, and this is now an integral part of our teaching that we are passionate about developing.

Our theatre schools in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks, are designed to help the progression of both our youngest and our more mature students alike. During the pandemic, we are also running comprehensive Online classes in the Performing Arts. We help our younger students to find their voices, gain creativity and confidence and social skills and make friends with their classmates and the entire Academy. We have a wide range of students and are very excited to see our students grow, and we see the progression all the way through to our intensive class designed for older students. Here we tackle deeper subjects, inspire solo performers, build repertoire, work on technique, and prepare for auditions for performing arts colleges. Here we hone the skills needed, not just for the Performing Arts, but for a successful and happy life.

For any JPA student that wants to explore working in the Performing Arts industry, we work closely with Carousel Management, a children’s agency with amazing contacts. We meet with the team from Carousel Management regularly to discuss auditions and our talented students. JPA students have appeared in many adverts on television and online, short films, voiceovers, campaigns and West End shows.

We combine our passion, our extensive knowledge and experience with our love of teaching to provide an exceptional service, building the confidence of every child. We are very proud of the quality of our teachers and the high standard pushed for and achieved by our students. We offer free taster sessions at our academies in Tonbridge,  Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells.
