Hear from our Director, Harriette Hale, about the exciting developments we’re making to The Academy whilst enjoying an evening of free classes and schmoozing with your fellow artists.
The studios you call home are getting a HUGE upgrade – more space, more facilities, more of what you need to allow your creative genius to flow. We’re deep into our Crowdfunding campaign, raising the funds to put these plans into action.

Where does your money go?
Every penny will help us implement the upgrades to The Academy so we can continue to meet the demand for centrally located, affordable, high quality creative spaces. You can expect to enjoy:
2 additional Balcony-sized studios (18.5m x 5.5m)
– Changing rooms and showers
– Storage lockers
– Fixed ballet barres
– Water fountain
– Dimmable lights in studios
– Soft flooring
The demand for rehearsal spaces is growing all the time, especially since studios (particularly those in Camden borough) have been closing down left and right since 2014.
We already have a waiting list of dance, music, theatre, and fitness organisations requiring space for their ventures, and we are striving to update our facilities to accommodate their needs and help support their businesses and communities.
Our goal is to build more studios to house more creatives and give them more and better spaces to hold their amazing rehearsals, classes, workshops, jam sessions, photo shoots, and meetings. With more space, we’ll also be in a better position to offer free or subsidized rehearsal space to up-and-coming theatre and dance companies, or to offer free workshops for Camden residents who might normally feel excluded from the arts.
Our studios are unique because we cater to all artistic industries: theatre, film, dance, music, visual art, photography, and even health and fitness – and we focus on building a community. Clients who use the studios always comment on the energy of the building, and how powerful and inspiring it always is when the studios are busy and bustling.
This is an exciting opportunity for the studios to grow and advance, so that we can offer an enhanced experience for our clients: more studios, more amenities, and overall better value for money.
We are so proud and grateful to have built long-lasting and fulfilling relationships with clients from all industries who have been with us from the very beginning. And we look forward to continuing to build new relationships as we grow and move forward!
