What We Believe

We believe that talent needs robust, consistent and high-quality training for it to reach its highest potential. Our vision is to provide this to our young performers, through personal development plans tailored to their needs, delivered in a safe environment. Not only does this result in talented performers, but also in self-discipline, leadership skills, and creative thinking, which will benefit them in all aspects of life, as well as in pursuing their passions with us.

At just 11 years old, Emma was accepted into the prestigious ballet school, Bush Davies, in East Grinstead, then at 16, she moved to the world class Doreen Bird College where she gained her teaching qualifications with Distinction in ISTD Qualifications. A glance at the show program of any London theatre will find at least one Bush or Bird pupil in its pages! Emma has since coached numerous pupils to audition successfully for Bird College, Mountview, Laines, AADA, Arts Ed, GSA and other prestigious top performing Arts schools in the UK & USA.

What’s the ethos of PWA?

We are an Academy of Performing Arts, and we train children to becoming the next generation of performers. That means dedication to all of our disciplines, because to be accepted into the right college at 18, you must possess the solid foundations of the ‘Triple Threat’: singing, acting, and dance. With the expertise of our performing arts specialists, your commitment, and a touch of Emma’s magic, PWA will give your child the foundation they need to succeed.

Happy Parents and Performers

“Work hard, listen, focus, and develop your confidence. These things are the most important qualities to have - even more than possessing talent - in achieving a successful career in the performing arts.”

Emma Peploe-Williams, Founder & Principal
