JK Theatre Arts run theatre classes for both children and adults at the Park Centre, Burgess Hill. Set up in 2008 by Kim Wright and Jamie Bannerman, the school now works with more than 150 children per week across Sussex in musical theatre classes, schools and regular holiday workshops for children.

Kim said: “JK regularly perform in events within the community including the upcoming Big Dance Off competition in January 2012. In August, they opened Haywards Heath’s Making Waves on Broadway show and spectators were treated to a sing along session and left dancing in the street with musical numbers including We Go Together and Greased Lightnin’.”

Kim added: “Recent news includes one JK student getting through tough auditions to gain a place on the junior team in the Worthing pantomime of Peter Pan and another student featuring in a film, set to shoot at the end of this month.

“JK students range from three-16 years and they are actively encouraged to work in all three area of performing arts; dance, drama and singing in weekly classes to attain their potential. Adult classes include DanceFit which aims to inspire people to exercise and the best thing about the class is that no dance experience is required! JK also offer children parties and themed party entertainment.”
