Our history to now

Nazene Danielle has been established in educating children and young adults for 20 years.

 

Establishing Nazene Danielle's Dance Dynamix in 2000, Nazene and her Faculty have trained hundreds of individuals in Dance and Performing Arts. Training has been through the ISTD, RAD and LAMDA syllabi progressing students through to vocational exams, moulding accomplished young adults who have gone on to succeed in the industry.

Opening a Performing Arts college in 2015, the NDDD faculty extended their curriculum to provide training for 16+ in BTEC Level 3 Extended Diplomas and Teacher Training Level 4 Diplomas with the ISTD, RAD and IDTA.

This department is continually developing with lots of talented young adults securing work in the industry both teaching and performing.

Many of our alumni hold world wide dance titles and are the recipients of prestigious national awards. Also, many students have worked in the West End and National Tours including Lead Roles in Newsies, Billy Elliot and Matilda, as well as securing roles on Netflix, Cruises and UK Arena Tours.

The focused, disciplined, nurturing and creative approach to study the NDDD Faculty have always implemented, allows our students to develop a strong longing for discovery, making them keen for further discovery and shaping them into well- rounded, determined individuals.

 

We are excited to now bring this level of training to Nazene Danielle

School of Performing Arts, offering secondary education to create life-long learners and creative, hard working individuals that are keen to learn and discover what the world has to offer the

OUR MISSION

Our school mission is to provide an education that cultivates courteous, independent and creative thinkers.


We allow our students' passionate interests to be unlocked and explored alongside excelling academically, practically, emotionally and socially in a purposeful school environment.


Our independence allows us to have a direct focal point on the individual, be responsive to change and provide a broad, innovative educational journey for our pupils.


Small class sizes allow more focus from the teacher to student, more opportunities to take part and express their opinions and more tailored technical training which enables students to be more educationally engaged and stimulated. 

Embedding Professional Performing Arts training into the curriculum allows students to balance their academic and Performing Arts studies in an environment that understands the desire to succeed in both.
