ABOUT US

Mendip Performing Arts Academy is a fun, interactive and inclusive theatre school, based in Somerset.


Run by former recording artist and Musical Theatre graduate, Principal Rosie, the Academy gives students the chance to learn and blend the three core performing disciplines of singing, dancing and acting, with a focus on confidence, team building, fun and of course learning and building on performance skills.  

We offer one to one classes, LAMDA examination and group classes in singing, dancing and acting with a Musical Theatre focus.


Performing arts is about so much more than just singing, dancing or acting.  We encourage our students to reach their potential in a safe and encouraging environment, build confidence and find skills they never even knew they had.

OUR PRINCIPAL

Rosie Skinner (BA Hons Musical Theatre)

Rosie says:

"Performing has meant

everything to me, for as long as I can remember.


As a child, I would spend all my time outside of school at singing, dancing and acting lessons, completing examinations in LCM Musical Theatre, ISTD Dance, Rock School Pop Singing and more certifications than I care to remember,  Any spare time I had left over, was spent rehearsing and practicing my craft, or performing gigs in local venues in my hometown.

Following the completion of my Performing Arts Diploma, and subsequently my Musical Theatre degree, after rounds of auditions I went on to be signed by a record label placed into a girl band - we toured the UK and released two singles on iTunes - it was an incredible experience.

So that's why I started The Mendip Performing Arts Academy.  To support young people who have a passion for performing to unlock their potential and experience the joy that comes from being on stage in a supportive environment, having fun with their friends.

I can't wait to see where our student's paths will lead.

See you on the dance floor!"
