Samantha Wood Theatre Academy

The Academy offers classes for all age groups from 2 years to adults of any age.  Our venues are the Chinley Community Centre, the Women’s Institute Hall, Chinley and the Adult Education Centre, Fairfield, Buxton.

Our first session in all children’s classes is free of charge, so you can try a number of classes before deciding which you would like to pursue.

We are a growing academy and continue to add new classes to our timetable in line with our strategy and when demand is sufficient to make new classes viable.

Come and join us in our Little Stars classes (2-4yrs), Baby Ballet (3-4yrs), Musical Theatre classes, I.S.T.D. Ballet classes, I.S.T.D. Tap Dance classes, Jazz and Body Conditioning, Street Dance classes and Private Tuition (Singing or Dance).
