WELCOME TO SUPERARTS ACADEMY
For us Superarts is something much more than a Performing Arts School -
for us it has been a way of life for decades,
providing students and the wider community
with a life enhancing, practical, & educative experience of Dance and Performance.
Dear Students and families,
We hope you’re all well and staying safe in these uncertain times.
Here at Superarts we have been wondering how best to serve you all and after time of reflection we are now ready to launch #SuperartsStayTogether
We have created #SuperartsStayTogether, a programme of activities and events for all our students to practice their skills, maintain fitness, and have fun with the whole family. Plus, we’ll be going through the exam dances for the younger students to enable us to hold the examinations as soon as possible when we resume classes.
We have lots of goodies coming up; competitions, online classes, videos, weekly activities and Friday Fun Fact Day.
We hope all of you will participate, share with your friends and get the whole family involved - we want to see Mum and Dad dancing too!
The weekly activity will be announced each Saturday mornings starting APRIL 4th.
Anyone and everyone are invited to take part so please help spread the word.
We hope Mum, Dad, siblings & friends will JOIN in with the weekly activity and we look forward to seeing your videos & comments.
Tag@superartsacademy in your posts along with the hashtag #SuperartsStayTogether
Online Zoom classes
Online classes will be available from Sat 11th April.
Classes will be held on ZOOM, an easy platform to access and each class will last 40 minutes.
Please find the timetable & a full description of the classes on the Superarts Academy website. (Available soon on the Superarts Academy face book page)
Further classes will be added as we go along.
Cheaper than an Easter Egg and much better for you too!
We are charging a nominal fee of £5 per student or household per class. (Nexustonics with Susan will be £15 per person)
Once payment has been received we will send you a meeting link, ID and password.
For the safety of our students we will be limiting the number of participants so please book your place ASAP.
As well as our online group classes, please note we also have a number of time slots available for 1-2-1 classes. If you are interested in a private class for your child, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get booked in. Fees for 1-2-1 will be offered at £30 per 40 mins session.
In this time of the unknown and social distancing, let’s #SuperartsStayTogether
All best wishes

Dear Parents and Students,
ACADEMY CLOSED FROM SAT MARCH 21st 😔
As I’m sure you’re all aware by now, the decision was made by the government to close all school, and therefore we have no choice but to close Superarts Academy until further notice.
In the 58 years Superarts has been running, this is the first time we’ve had to close our doors other than normal holidays. 😔
Please be assured that classes will resume as soon as possible after the Easter holidays, and when the schools go back. In the meantime we ask our students to keep practising, stretching, singing and dancing at home, and of course practising their examination dances for when we return.
EXAMINATIONS TO BE POSTPONED
Aware how hard the students have worked this term towards the examinations planned for March 28th & 29th, we now sadly, have to inform you that obviously with the academy being closed we are forced to cancel these exams dates too.
But please be assured once again, that a new date will be rescheduled for the exams, as soon as we have the green light to resume classes.
For those of you who have paid fees for the last 2 weeks of term, or for the exams, please know we will carry these funds over to the next term.
Please check our FB & Instagram pages for updates.
We wish you all well at this time, and thank you for your continuing support of Superarts. This is much appreciated. 🙏
All best wishes
Take good care,
Susan, Irene and The Superarts Team
STAY CALM, STAY KIND AND BREATHE.
TESTIMONIAL: DEAN LEE - FORMER STUDENT
CHOREOGRAPHER FOR X FACTOR, JANET JACKSON, KYLIE MINOGUE, LEONA LEWIS, AND MANY MORE.........
"Superarts was never just a dance school, it was a place to escape from all that was wrong and discover all that I wanted to become. It was a building full of talent that was being sculpted and nourished to allow these performers to live out their dreams in all corners of the industry.
Irene and Susan were instrumental in giving me the best possible foundation to go onto the next level. They give opportunities that fill you with first-hand knowledge of the industry to make you as prepared as possible.
Superarts will always be a home and a special place to help young talent discover what they are capable of across multiple fields. To me, personally, they were so generous with the care, attention, opportunities and training, that without them, or the school as that crucial starting block, I may never have gone on to do all that I've managed to achieve".
