Fixation Performing Arts Academy is run by Academy Directors Laura Davitt & Carly Pryke.

Fixation was founded in 2012 by Laura Davitt, who created an artistic company of trained performing arts professionals and youth workers to create opportunities for young people and adults to participate in the performing arts and develop new skills in a safe and collaborative environment.

In 2014 now Academy Director Carly joined the team that Laura had created and together with over 30 years of combined teaching and performing experience, they formed what we now know as Fixation Academy of Performing Arts.

Fixation Academy is a welcoming place for all to flourish, learn and grow. Our team of professionals use their extensive knowledge of the performance industry to provide quality training in disciplines acting, singing, dance, drama and musical theatre for ages 4-18 and adults.

Our aim for each person that comes through our doors is to have fun, build confidence, make new friends, learn new skills and express themselves through the arts. Whether you see the performing arts as a fun hobby or potential career path, Fixation Academy is a place for students to discover and shine. We aim to give each child the skills and training necessary to turn their own dreams into a reality.

At our Academy students benefit from weekly term time classes that work towards annual full-scale productions, in house shows and other public performances such as community festivals and competitions throughout the year. Fixation Academy of Performing Arts also gives students the opportunity to progress through their exam grades with LAMDA and the Royal Academy of Dance.

What people say about us:

Work Experience

After my mum found fixation through a friend on social media I knew it was going to be the perfect place for me to to my work experience.
I met with Laura before I started and told her the things I wanted to focus on (prop design and backstage management).
Laura and Carly made sure I had plenty of things to do in that area like helping with making the props for the show, which helped me bring out my creative side and being backstage during the shows.
My work experience was the duration of two weeks and after that I knew I wanted to stay on as a volunteer as everyone was so welcoming, I was learning a lot and doing the things I am passionate about. Luckily Laura took me on as a volunteer and has given me the opportunity for a potential job. Every week I am learning more and more and gaining more experience.

Bring Mum to Dance Week

We had an amazing lesson with Hattie. I want to thank her for her charisma and being so much fun. The girls truly enjoyed themselves and were so proud to show me all their different activities they do in class every week. They had a huge smile on their faces and were so happy to share their class with me.

Thank you so much ?

Bring Mum to dance week

What a lovely idea! I really enjoyed learning the street dance moves and it was so nice to do an activity like this with my daughter who is growing up so fast. The teacher has a great energy and bond with the children which was also lovely to see. I can now fully understand why my daughter loves this class so much!
