The June White Academy of Dance and Drama

We offer dance, drama and singing lessons across the Fleet and Farnborough area in Hampshire. The school was started by June Messenger in 1982, and has been dedicated ever since to giving children and adults a first class dance education, while retaining a sense of fun.

Exams may be taken in all subjects, this enables children to gain the sense of achievement and something to aim for. Pupils are given the chance to audition for professional pantos and shows. Small displays are performed which gives pupils the chance to show their work to friends and family.

Pupils of The June white Academy of Dance and Drama are encouraged to develop their understanding and enjoyment of acting through practical lessons,team building exercises,script work,improvisation and performance.Lessons are structured to suit different abilities and every student is given the opportunity to showcase their work throughout the year. LAMDA exams may be taken as well as festival competition work.
By exploring a series of fundamental skills such as characterisation, movement, sense memory, emotional memory and voice, students develop a good grounding in performance technique.

Testimonials

Georgina (née Pepper)

Dear (Miss) June,
You probably won’t remember me, as you had many pupils, but we only had a few teachers! I thought I’d look and see how my old dance teacher was doing.
I have been looking at dance lessons for my daughters, over here in Colchester, recently. They were very excited to discover that Mummy learned Ballet and Tap (and Modern and Jazz – but I haven't mentioned those yet).
It was a pleasant surprise to find you on the web – and now running a stage school. It was also great to find that Tina is teaching alongside you too; she choreographed my competition dance (Mr Bluebird – I might even still remember some of the dance if you played the music) and some of the dances in the Scout pantomimes (I particularly remember the rat dance in Dick Whittington).
I still have many good memories of being in your dance classes at the Methodist Church, and hope to give my daughters the same kind of start. You may like to know that you did a good job of inspiring me to dance for life. I have continued dancing (mostly in amateur theatre groups) until I left the Theatre Arts Society at Essex University in 2005 (because I graduated, aged 25), when I struggled to find a local group to join. The dance school (Showcase) I(ve found does classes for adults too, so I may do that instead.
Thank-you again for your hard work and for inspiring me,
Georgina (née Pepper)
