Valley Academy is a Stage School based in the Crawshawbooth area of the Rossendale Valley.

Specialising in teaching Musical Theatre, Drama and Dance to young people, the Academy is the only Theatre School in the Valley to perform two full-scale Musical productions every year!

Our approach to teaching and learning stems very much from the experience and training of the Academy’s Principal, Grant Bromley. We believe in a process of learning through performance. Classes are therefore focused towards an end goal, whether it is a Musical Production, Pantomime or Concert. All students are encouraged to be involved and learn from the experience only live performance can deliver.

We also hold both Easter and Summer Schools, teaching performance skills  and usually themed around a musical, which again culminate in a performance to showcase students’ work.

We pride ourselves on being able to provide professional representation for gifted students. Our agency, Valley Actors Management, seeks employment for clients in theatre, television, film, radio and advertising. This provides a step into the professional performance world and who knows where it may lead!

We welcome students from all backgrounds, regardless of their ability or experience and aim to identify the needs of each individual in order to enable them to reach their full potential and develop into a rounded performer. We believe in giving everyone a chance to shine.

A unique environment of commitment, engagement and trust has developed at Valley Academy due to the strong bond between students, staff and parents.

So whether it's dance classes, drama classes or music classes, Valley Academy has it all to offer. We currently offer classes in Musical Theatre, Tap & Ballet and LAMDA Exam Preparation. Singing tutition and private classes are also available. We even have a Community Choir, Valley Aloud, for adults!
