Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts
Swindon outpost of West End stars Gareth Gates & Jonathan Wilkes' Performing Arts Academy.
As established artists in the Entertainment Industry, each having played major roles in London's West End, these two performers have joined ranks to pass on their unique experiences to the next generation.
Their wives, Suzanne and Nikki, principals of the college, began their professional training at the highly accomplished Laine Theatre Arts College. They have both gone on to have very successful careers in dance and choreography spanning two decades.
Jonny and Nikki currently run two performing arts schools in Stoke and Swindon. Their success speaks for itself given the current waiting lists.
Having been friends for many years, Gareth, Jonny, Suzanne and Nikki decided that the time was right to join forces, combine their talent and open their first school together.
Children of all ages will be coached not only by the four founders, but by other highly trained teachers and various well known performing artists.
