About Us

AJ‘s Academy of Dance and Drama was established in September 2004, In December of the following year the Academy performed its first ever show with fewer than 35 students. Since then however the school has developed and grown to over 150 pupils.

In September 2007 AJ‘s Academy expanded the school and opened up lessons at the Clock Tower Hall, Sittingbourne, Kent. Classes are available for both children and adults so I am sure you will find something that suits your requirements.

The Academy puts on 1 show a year, in the Summer! and has a Christmas party in December with a small Display. Our Summer shows include: "Expression" , "Chapter 5" , "Dance Fusion" , "Music ‘n’ Mayhem" "Summer This, Summer That" "Simply Showtime" our special 10th Anniversary Celebration show "Project X" , "Summer Shakedown", "Dance Dynamix" and our most recent performance "Dance Electric
our shows are held at The Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone. In October 2016 we had 37 Students perform at London's Shaftesbury Theatre in the West End.

AJ’s Academy is a small family business run by local people, Alison (the principal) and her husband James have lived in Sittingbourne for over 10 years. They continue to look at ways to improve the school and offer more opportunity for the students be it children or adults. For example more recently AJ’s Academy performed at Her Majesty's Theatre in London’s West End and in August 2015 32 of our students perfored at Disneyland Paris as part of the Disney Performing Arts Programme
