Miss Jane and Miss Heather I am afraid Bella will not be at modern and tap tonight as she has been invited to a party. We will see you next week. Have a good weekend. X
CA students will be performing on Monday 30th May!
Please could you upload the activate tap rehearsal dance from Friday so that me and Zoë could practice, thankyou xx
A huge thank you to Miss Jane and Miss Heather for all the hard work they did for Lily. She is very proud of a gold medal in her first solo! Thank you for all you do! Xx

Hi Miss Heather and Miss Jane, apologies but Ella will not be at modern tonight as she still feels a little poorly from yesterday but will be there tomorrow morning. X

The Chiltern Academy School of Performing Arts has been established for over 45 years in Prestwood.

The Chiltern Academy has been running classes in Prestwood since 1973. Our continued success is not only down to the excellent teaching faculty but also the warm friendly atmosphere created within the academy where every student is made to feel an important part of the Chiltern Academy family.

Operating as usual

Our renowned adult tap, jazz and ballet classes start back on Monday 9th January!

At Chiltern Academy we have been welcoming adults through our door for over 40 years! Many have never danced a step before joining us, and seeing them progress from a nervous beginner to a confident performer fills us with joy!

Dance is for everyone, no matter what your age or ability and is a fun energising and effective way to reduce stress and anxiety. The laughter, love and support we share each week is so uplifting and we all leave the studio in a calmer, relaxed and more positive state of mind.

Dancing really is good for your soul, so

Don’t forget our new January Timetable starts today.

Christmas is nearly upon us and as I have donned my tap shoes for the last time this year I would like to thank my fabulous adult students for your continued love and support.
Dancing is an outlet for joy that’s good for your body and soul. It’s also the perfect combination of exercise and socialisation and I always feel happier after an hour with you wonderful people!

Wishing everyone at CA a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!

We are seeing an increase in Childhood mental health & anxiety due to the many pressures that society place onto our young people 💚💙.

Our mental health is just as important as our physical. Dance offers not only the benefit of the physical exercise but it allows your mind to escape & let’s your soul breathe. Take time this half term to allow yourself to reset.
[email protected]


Our dance classes for our younger children are inspired by learning through play. With simple movements, using our imagination, how we can move our bodies in different ways to the music but most of all our pre school classes are about working together - making new friends, understanding spacial awareness, turn taking and confidence building. All done in a safe nurturing environment with our qualified teachers. If you’d like to bring your child along for a free trial session please get in touch we’d love you hear from you.

Over the last couple of year there has been a significant increase in child & adolescents mental health take time for yourself & be kind to others.

Dance can provide massive benefits for your mental well being 💚💚💚

Happy Teacher’s Day
Today we celebrate our team of dedicated teachers for whom teaching is not a job but their passion and what drives us to pass our knowledge on.
Nurturing our students creating the right balance between fun & learning. For them to know that you never give up, by offering feedback, support & motivation. We recognise that each student is an individual just like us, we all bring something unique to the class. It’s not just about teaching the steps & learning the lyrics but those moments when you see your student reach their personal goal, that moment when your heart fills with pride that turns from you inspiring them to them inspiring you. 💙
