Update 12th May 2020

The Company Performing Arts remains closed for the foreseeable future until further guidance is issued by the UK Government for recommended reopening procedures.

My students, team members and families safety and wellbeing continues to be my number one priority and I look forward to returning to our studios once it is safe to do so.

I would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time.

18th March 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the best interests of our students, staff members, families and supporters I have taken the decision with a heavy heart to proceed with the immediate closure of The Company Performing Arts at both the Clacton and Colchester studios.

The closure will commence at 3pm on Wednesday 18th March 2020 and it is hoped we can reopen after the previously scheduled Easter Holidays on Monday 20th April 2020.

Term dates, classes and performances will be adjusted accordingly once a resolve to this unprecedented situation has become apparent. I am working closely with our examination boards, competition organisers and theatre venues to ensure suitable outcomes for our students.

During the closure period my team and I will be posting various online activities and performing related resources to keep our students active and engaged. We may share videos of recorded classes or suggest links for online content of performing arts videos. We shall be doing our very best, no matter what.

I will continue to post updates in our Facebook groups and on our social media channels. If you have any urgent enquires please do not hesitate to email me: mra@thecompanypa.com

I thank you so much for your continued support during these uncertain times. Take care of yourselves, and I look forward to seeing you all again when this is over.
