AJ‘s Academy of Dance and Drama was established in September 2004, In December of the following year the Academy performed its first ever show with fewer than 35 students. Since then however the school has developed and grown to over 160 pupils.
In September 2007 AJ‘s Academy expanded the school and opened up lessons at the Clock Tower Hall, Sittingbourne, Kent. Classes are available for both children and adults so I am sure you will find something that suits your requirements.
The Academy puts on 1 show a year, in the Summer! and has a Christmas party in December with a small Display. Our Summer shows include: "Expression" , "Chapter 5" , "Dance Fusion" , "Music ‘n’ Mayhem" "Summer This, Summer That","Simply Showtime" our special 10th Anniversary Celebration show "Project X","Summer Shakedown","Dance Dynamix","Dance Electric and "Encore!", 2019 will see us celebrate our 15th Anniverary show
our shows are held at The Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone.

AJ’s Academy is a small family business run by local people, Alison (the principal) and her husband James have lived in Sittingbourne for over 14 years.
