Our Music is delivered by Shining Lights

A little about The Founder: 

Hi, My name is Nick (Mr Legg), I’m the founder of Shining Lights Performing Arts Academy. I have had a passion for performance since a young age performing in both instrumental and musical theatre groups. After gaining a Triple Distinction in Performing Arts from Brockenhurst College, I went on to do a BA Honours in musical theatre at the University of Chichester where after three years I achieved a 2.1

Throughout my time honing my craft in Drama, Dance, Singing and Technical Theatre I have always had the dream of opening my very own Theatre Academy where children can express themselves through performance, feel safe and happy to be a Shining Light. 

I have spent over nine years working as a Drama, Music, Dance and Performing Arts teacher at several schools in the Bournemouth and New Forest areas. I was head of music and performing arts at a private school in bournemouth for many years which gave me the opportunity to pass on my love for performance, music and the arts. Throughout my training I have not just homed my skills in the Three main aspects of theatre as well as music but working in schools has allowed me to teach the importance of all aspects for performing arts  to the children. 

Starting Shining Lights Performing Arts is scary yet exciting and I am hoping to offer a vast range of sessions from drama, singing and dance to set design, theatrical make-up, Stage Combat. If you are a budding performer or someone interested in technical theatre, shining lights is the academy for you.
