Established in 2005, the Leanne Edwards School of Theatre Arts is based in Knaphill and Bisley and offers a friendly, family oriented environment for children aged 2½ to 18 years to learn dance and musical theatre skills. The school offers lessons in ballet, modern, tap, limbering, street jazz, Boys classes, singing and drama.
Pupils are encouraged to take the nationally recognised ISTD exams in all dance disciplines. All teachers are fully qualified and many of them have performed professionally which allows them to transfer their experiences and knowledge.
The school regularly enters local dance festivals and is the resident performing group for two local summer fairs. It also holds a bi-annual variety dance show in a local theatre where the pupils are able to show case their talents. This show is preceded by a choreographic competition where the pupils are encouraged to develop their own dances from which the winning entries are included in the main variety show. The school also produce regular theatrical plays and popular musical theatre shows at the Village Hall and local Theatres.
The school is located at the Lansbury Estate and Bisley Village Hall and has exclusive use of this friendly facility during lesson times.
