Born in 2016, Sorelle London Academy opened it's doors for the first time and immediately made an impact setting the tone to become one of the most successful, young and current theatre schools on the market.

Sorelle Academy is founded by sisters Rachel and Jessica, who both have a collective passion for performing arts. They share an array of professional experiences from West End musicals, European tours, cruise ships, television and commercials.

Since both graduating from the prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, the duo wish to pass on their knowledge of show business to young stars who are looking to learn and expand their craft in the performing arts industry.

 

SLA teaches children from 3-16 years in all aspects of performing arts from jazz, street dance, musical theatre, acting and singing.

At Sorelle, we offer one-on-one private coaching along with annual performances in theatres, holiday clubs and workshops with casting directors and well known choreographers.

We pride ourselves on giving the children professional, enjoyable training and a place where they will build great friendships and make memories to last a lifetime.
