About The Kevin Adams Academy

The school started in 2009 after Kevin had worked on a show for the Disney Channel entitled Club High School Musical: Make It Happen, for which, instead of using professional dancers, he used those who where trained locally. Things were then taken to the next level when Kevin offered the same opportunity to a greater number of students here at The Kevin Adams Academy.

Kevin, having trained locally in Essex, wanted to give others some of the great opportunities that he was lucky enough to have at the start of his career. There will be many outlets during the year for students to perform and for parents and family to see what goes on at The Kevin Adams Academy, with a summer musical show and an annual anniversary show in November. Seeing is really going to be believing!

Having choreographed and worked with the likes of The Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham, Cher, Mariah Carey and Boyzone, the knowledge gained from these great stars is going to be right here for Academy students to share. In the future, we hope that there will be a Professional Dance Troupe working full-time in the industry and around the world, as Kevin has done himself.
