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". 

Superarts Star Of The Week...

OUR SUPERARTS STAR OF THE WEEK............watch this space for our new Star of the Week

Superarts Academy, affectionately known as RENIE'S, the founder being Irene Hayes BEM. Founded in 1962, Superarts is dedicated to working with children through dance and performance, and we are dedicated to the creative potential of every child regardless of race, culture, socio-economic or religious background.

 

This ethos is fundamental to the approach of the teachers and to the classes from jazz to tap, street to acro/gym, and musical theatre.

In a safe environment, the young people attending Superarts are given the experiences and tools to:

  • exercise and dance
  • enjoy themselves
  • identify and develop skills in dance, creativity, musicality and performance
  • experience the joy of dance and encourage a life enhancing relationship to the arts
  • explore and develop a kinetic intelligence and an understanding of how their body’s move
  • co-operate and interact with peers from different backgrounds and age-groups
  • assume some responsibility for their learning and development
  • take responsibility for their behaviour
  • develop the ability to communicate their ideas and emotions through dance
  • become aware of the importance of music and its relationship with dance
  • improve their self-confidence and develop a sense of who they are
  • explore and develop an understanding of the processes involved in creating and performing a dance piece
  • develop an awareness of healthy living and thereby healthy choices
  • challenge their perceptions in a safe and non-judgemental environment

  

Thus the class are fun, disciplined, challenging, interactive and most of all creative, supportive, and nourishing.

 

With the main focus on dance in a respectful community setting, each child’s creative potential can be explored, promoting both physical and emotional well-being.
