As more and more children are suffering with a host of mental health issues during the pandemic and especially during this current lockdown, we need to ensure that we are looking out for and checking in with our children/students.

Here at KA Arts, we have teamed up with a leading NLP practioner/Life coach to deliver a #MentalHealth workshop for our Upper Seniors, with a view to offer this out to all of our senior students.

Recently, we had the amazing EJC Management join us during our online lessons to watch the students perform in their dance classes for ‘Performance Week’.

EJC Management represents talent in TV, Theatre and Film. More information can be found here: www.ejcmanagement.co.uk 

Where Are You Christmas?

As Christmas 2020 will be very different to what we would normally expect, especially with the Tier 4 restrictions on seeing family members, we have created this very moving video to help spread a little Christmas cheer.
Featuring students who receive one-to-one vocal training with our Head of Vocal.
Arrangement and Audio Mixing – Dean Ryan
Video Editor – Max Roach

Ex Wives – SIX – Lockdown Performance Video

Here is a video of a dance piece that would have been featured in our 2020 show…. But due to the national lockdown, it couldn’t go ahead. So our Senior girls recorded it during their lockdown for us to share with you.

Can You Feel The Love Tonight

Since the introduction of our online classes, due to the Covid19 lockdown, our students (and parents), have worked extremely hard and continued to improve with their training.

As a thank you to our parents and students, we devised a project for our Junior and Senior students in addition to our scheduled online classes and here is the finished product. We hope you enjoy!
