LONDON, HARINGEY

Welcome

Welcome to Moving Waves Academy. In the last 5 years we've run performing arts and fitness classes for adults and children. We are not a franchise, we are a small passionate team with a big dream: To improve lives using the arts.

Our performing arts academy in North London has been running successfully since September 2015. We run dance, drama and fitness classes for adults and children above the age of 4.

Our performing arts classes cover dance and drama techniques, develop vital presentation skills and encourage self-expression. Our classes focus on fun and in enhancing self-confidence.

We use effective teaching techniques such as positive encouragement and constructive individual feedback to ensure that each child makes the most out of their time with us.
