The Carol May School of Dance and Performing Arts was established in 1982.

Since then it has greatly progressed into the successful and friendly school it is today.


In 2013 the business was renamed 'Carol May's Academy'


Classes are held in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere for both

children and adults, beginner to advanced.


Pupils are prepared for RAD ballet, ISTD modern and tap exams,

LAMDA Speech and Drama and RCM Singing Syllabi.


Pupils can enjoy classes as a hobby, or can seek a more

serious level if they have chosen dance as their career.


Students are given the opportunity to take part in festival competitions

both locally and nationally.


They also enrich their stage experience with performances at venues such as:
