Meet The Boom Team

It's not just the children that are exploding with talent, our Boom team is too. Between us, we have experience in Television, West End Theatre, Regional Theatre, Pantomimes, Dance Work and the list goes on. Each member of our Boom team has something unique to offer and we love that we can share our experiences with hundreds of children each week and help them to achieve their dreams. The Boom Academy Teachers are full of passion and enthusiasm for the children we work with. As well as working hard to achieve new things and learn new skills, we also like to have fun. It is important to be in a creative and positive environment and we do our best to ensure our classes are as fun and vibrant as possible. We all care for the wellbeing of our pupils and treat everyone as individuals, no matter what age and background.
 

The Academy is run by Miss Stephanie and Mr James. Get to know the people behind Boom...
