At PQA Dartford we have a dedicated and professional set of teachers and team members, all of which have been carefully considered for the Academy. Every staff member is a Performing Arts professional in their own right, working in the industry, and therefore giving our PQA students current and relevant skills to set them up for their performance journey.

We are lucky enough to hold our Academy at Longfield Academy, which boasts fantastic facilities. We have a specialist drama studio, a musical theatre auditorium, a bright and modern dance studio, a media suite for Film & TV, along with spacious and open classrooms perfect for our Poppets!

Our priority is ensuring that all groups have a great time on a Saturday morning and leave looking forward to the following weekend!

We look forward to welcoming our current and new students to PQA Dartford every Saturday! If you fancy giving PQA a go, then why not book your FREE taster session?

Any questions then please feel free to contact Vicki by phoning 07854 109368 or emailing
