EXCITING NEWS!

We are so looking forward to reopening fully in September, and in a new venue too!

 

Community Centre – St John's Colchester (stjohnscolchester.org.uk)

Join us at 9.30 on 11th September for the first day this next chapter in Laver's Academy story. 

HISTORY
 

In 2018 Caroline Laver took on the reigns of NJT performing arts school (previously The Academy) based in Coggeshall. After a renaming and rebranding, Laver's Academy was born. The reputation of this theatrical arts school has gone from strength to strength.  A safe place for students to hone their skills as actors, dancers and singers with teachers who all have a passion for teaching and provide lessons which give every student the tools they need to reach their potential. We are proud to watch our students gain confidence and also build long standing friendships. Many of our students have gone on to performing arts colleges after their GCSEs and A levels. As well as gaining work as actors. 

 

As with many businesses, the COVID 19 pandemic of 2020 meant we had to close our doors, and had the heartbreaking decision to cancel our performance of Oliver. 

When restrictions allowed, we came back in 2021 with drama only sessions, and a few of our students were finally able to enter their LAMDA examinations. Pleased to say they all received Distinctions, which is fantastic since most of their learning was done online.

As time goes on, more services and exciting workshops will be added to our services.
