Ciara trained in Musical Theatre at Bodyworks, for a year, and then at American Musical Theatre Academy in London where she graduated last summer. After being an Academy Arts student for 10 years she has now joined the teaching staff beginning last September. Whilst at Academy Arts Ciara played Sandy in Grease, Janet in The Drowsy Chaperone and Cinderella in Into the Woods and was dance captain for Anything Goes whilst at college. She is now auditioning for professional shows.
Olivia started training at Academy Arts when she was 9 years old. She was lucky enough to win a nation wide dance competition for Nickelodeon television which gave her the opportunity to dance with Perri Kiely and Jordan Banjo from Diversity. After leaving school Olivia attended The Brit school in Croydon in which she obtained a Triple D* extended level 3 diploma in Performing Arts. Olivia is currently studying at The Urdang Academy in Angel for a BA hons in Musical Theatre and Professional Dance.
Anne, mother of Academy Arts Principal Nina Jones has worked for Academy Arts pretty much since it opened its doors in 2007. Anne makes and designs many of the costumes worn in the school productions. She also is the tuck shop co-ordinator for both schools and is the administrator for Chelmsford. Anne is the heart of the school with most of the students calling her Auntie Anne.
Nikki is Mum to Hollie Christy and has been Epping administrator for five years. She is incredibly passionate about Academy Arts and its brilliant students and plays a huge role in making the kids feel welcome and included at the school. Academy arts would not be the same without Nikki's help, support and energy. (She also makes a mean cup of tea for the staff when they are teaching- so she’s a keeper!)
