'Welcome to The Limelight Academy, Manchester. Our mission is to bring children and young adults with special needs in to the limelight. We strongly believe that with the right teaching (enabling students to work at a suitable pace and through visual learning) that students are able to perform at the highest level, whether this be through the medium of dance, singing or acting. Whether a child or young adult has aspirations to perform on stage or the big screen, or if they would just like to build their confidence and self-esteem, then we have a class for both!
Research has shown that children and young adults with disabilities who work in a group can achieve much higher levels of self confidence and self esteem that would be other wise impossible in isolation.
All lessons are taught by industry professionals, Book your first class, term begins on Saturday 1st October!! HERE NOW! (Spaces are limited and are given on a first come first serve basis) or if this is your first time then please come and meet us on Saturday 24th September at the studio!
