Established for 25 years, The Nicholson Academy Of Theatre Dance (formerly known as 'The Brenda-Lee School Of Dance') is probably the biggest and most successful theatre dance school in this area. We have a broad range of classes, offering a first class service for both children and adults of all ages. Brenda & Natasha Nicholson accompanied with talented members of staff are all members of The National Association Of Teachers Of Dancing Limited (N.A.T.D LTD). This association was established in 1906 and has world wide membership in 26 countries. They are members of the central council of physical recreation and the council for dance education and training (UK).

Why walk, when you can dance with the Nicholson academy of theatre art. If you are passionate about music and dance. Then this is the place to be, take your passion and make it happen.

I've been at Nicholson near enough since I could walk, I enjoy dancing and there I have many friends the shows are soo good I also have started splits and kicks and become a lot loose and flexible. It is definitely a place to be.

My daughter Tiffany loves her time at Nicholson Academy doing her contemporary dance class and her musical theatre class! All the staff are lovely as are the students, Tiffany was made to feel welcome by everyone right from the start. We would definitely recommend this Academy
