A Rickmansworth performing arts school is celebrating its 30th anniversary in the heart of the town.
The Collective Performing Arts School and Teaching College, which has a studio in Rectory Lane, Rickmansworth, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year in style.
Since being founded in May of 1989 by principle Debra Hemmings, the collective has been developing performers with ‘diversity, dynamics and discipline’, getting the best out of young performers in Rickmansworth and surrounding areas.
The school offers support with both dance and drama, with over 12 different classes available to students.
Its most notable 30th year celebration event over the coming months is its very own fete, which will be held on July 13.
Debra told RickyNews: “We’re very much a community orientated school, parents get very involved. We teach children from two all the way up to adults. We’ve had a lot of students who have started at two and stayed with us until adulthood, some of which have gone on to be professionals.
“The fete in July is open to everyone, because we want them to see what we’re all about. We’ll also be performing at the Canal Festival on May 19 and the Croxley Revels on June 22.”
