Why is Gems Performing Arts special?
We are not a franchise.
We are proud that we are a young, enthusiastic, local company who enjoy giving back to the local communuty.
There are hundreds of big stage schools all across London, but unfortunately, at these big schools, children can get lost as the numbers are so large and this can be intimidating. Especially for a young child who has never danced or sung before. Most children join Gems Performing Arts as they enjoy performing and want to learn new skills, but more importantly, to shake off their shy tendencies, to grow in confidence and to interact with other children. We care about each Gem and love to watch them grow in confidence in a supportive environment. We aim to have a personal relationship with all children, teachers and parents to ensure that we can provide feedback to help towards the development of your child.
All our teachers live near to the schools and have worked extensively in the industry. We are passionate about teaching and performing arts.
We have high aspirations for the school and we will do our very best to ensure that each individual pupil fulfils his or her potential.
