An academy is getting ready to hold its summer school.

Officials at the Michelle Brown Academy of Dance & Theatre Arts (MBA), from Hartlepool, are busy putting the finishing touches to the programme.

It will be held from August 3 to August 7 at St Matthew’s Hall, in the town.

Academy founder Michelle Brown said MBA was “very busy planning our summer school which is to be held from August 3 to August 7, and is open to everyone.

“This jam-packed week consists of dance, drama, singing, musical theatre and lots and lots of fun.”

Michelle is hoping to build on the success of last year’s summer school.

She said: “We had an absolutely fantastic summer school last year, and this one is set out to be bigger and even better.”

Michelle, 29, trained at the internationally-renowned Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) and as a British Association of Teachers of Dance member.

Now she has her own school.
