Welcome to the Petite Acting Academy

The Petite Acting Academy is an innovative performing and creative arts drama school for children aged 1-11. We aim to revolutionise the way in which music and drama are used, utilising a programme of action, songs, puppets, basic drama and movement skills. We focus on creativity and the curriculum to ensure our budding actors and actresses build confidence and self esteem in a safe and friendly environment, as well as learning.

We take your children to another world and let their imaginations run wild!

Vicky Dempsey - Academy Owner

After having my first child I searched up and down the country to find a drama school that would take my two year old, as she had an imagination that took me to new worlds. When I couldn’t find anything I started to write a syllabus that was connected to the early years foundation course – this is when The Petite Acting Academy was born.

I have a BA Hons in Acting and have worked with children both abled and disabled in relation to drama and education so realised I was well placed to create something new. I am also a fully qualified LAMDA teacher and so have an in depth knowledge of what will make drama come alive to children. Most importantly, however, I have four children and I believe that childhood should be magical.

Deborah Carr – Area Manager

I first entered the world of theatre when I was just 4 years old when I started taking dance classes. At 16 my training continued at a full time theatre school where I gained Qualified Teacher Status in Dance and Performing Arts with the Royal Academy of Dancing. Upon graduating I secured a contract teaching Ballet at a school in Norway. Since my return to the UK in 2001 I have taught dance and drama in various schools and nurseries across the northwest.

For me the theatre is a world where imagination comes to life and now I get to spend my week going to a ball, saving the city, swimming with mermaids or finding dinosaurs!! For me the most rewarding part of my job is seeing the children’s confidence grow week by week. These amazingly creative little minds make every day full of fun.
