About us

We believe in nurturing, growing and exploring our student’s talents.

theschool of contemporary dance and the performing arts has grown organically from just 7 students who requested a different form of training in the performing arts where they didn’t feel limited by the program being delivered.

Our principle of collaboration helps guide our students in finding themselves.

theschool delivers the three arts of dance, drama and music providing innovative, professional, educational and fun performing arts training to children aged five to eighteen years. All of our sessions are held at The Link, Nailsea school studios and in built theatre.

The Link, Nailsea School, Nailsea, Bristol.  A charity set up to operate the external lettings of the Nailsea School site outside of school hours during the evening, weekend and holiday periods. It encourages the community to use the facilities and resources available locally to support all members of the community in both educational and recreational activities; whether it be participating in a hobby or learning a new skill.

Bristol a vibrant creative city famous for its performing arts industries; its growing theatre scene includes a large variety of theatre companies as diverse as one can imagine. There are also a number of organizations within the city that act to support the theatre maker, creator and student.

The vision of theschool is to be a hub of high-quality contemporary performing arts school that reaches out not only locally but nationally and internationally focused on improving opportunities and the well being of the local people. and, over time, to be recognized as a centre of excellence across the city through with its high quality output and partnerships with other education and performing arts organizations.

Success for us and our students is not just innovative performances and giving firm grounding and education in the three arts of dance, drama and music but also allowing our students to grow in self-confidence, by giving them the freedom to perform and by fuelling their creativity to become whatever they desire. We look forward to working with you and your child.
