Hello and welcome to the Kevin Adams Academy, School of Performing Arts, which specialises in performance excellence from the age of three and onwards. This is the only school of its kind that will give you tuition in Drama, Singing and Street Dance from experts working in the business, with an opportunity to have a professional outlet in Television, Film and Video for your new found skills. 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! And 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.

We are now affiliated with one of the country's best talent agencies, Alphabet Kidz, with students working all over the world. We have students appearing in a film called A Monster Calls starring Liam Neeson and Sigourney Weaver, also on television in Call The Midwife, Gwen And The Dragon for the BBC, Daybreak and This Morning. Finally, we have students active in the world of commercials and modelling, for brands such as Sainsburys, Fabreeze, Haven Holidays, Marks and Spencer and BHS. WE ARE TAKING OVER!
