About us

“I believe that Dance is about strong technique, expression, passion and most importantly, having a good time. After all, who said work doesn’t have to be fun? …just so long as you stretch those feet”

Miss Nikki


Hi I am Miss Nikki and I began dancing at the age of 5 at Tozer Studios. I was also lucky enough to dance in the Theatre Royal pantomimes as a child… this is where I fell in love with the theatre and have never looked back.

I have a LAMDA diploma in Acting and won many trophies at local drama festivals when I was younger. I started singing at school and as I grew up found a passion for musical theatre.

I have always loved teaching and working with children is the best job in the world. am now a headteacher of a local primary school where I get to sing, dance and role play with little people every day!

I am so excited to be continuing my passion for teaching and musical theatre

with KS dance academy and cant wait to bring the magic of the musicals to our children.

Miss Olivia


Hi, my name is Miss Olivia. I started dancing at the age of three at Sandra Taylor School of Dance in West Bridgford. I was able to perform in numerous shows and at the age of 13 I auditioned for English Youth Ballet where I was given the chance to perform in Coppelia at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham.

Growing up I had amazing opportunities to perform and I continued with Sandra Taylor until the age of 18, having performance opportunities at The Playhouse, The Concert Hall and The Theatre Royal in Nottingham.

At the age of 18 I earned a place at Performers College in Essex to study dance and musical theatre. I was so excited to start training professionally and had so many amazing opportunities and an incredible 3 years training. In 2019, I graduated with a level 6 diploma in Professional Musical Theatre.

A week after I graduated I landed my first professional job in Doha, Qatar. Returning from Qatar I started to focus on auditions and also teaching. I found a real passion for teaching and I am very excited to be teaching with Miss Kristy!
