In 2011 Hollywood Performing Arts was founded by Principle Holly Penny. The School opened in Swanley with only 35 students, but word spread quickly of the fantastic work Hollywood Performing Arts were displaying and so the School expanded to three new locations ; Dartford, Crayford and Gravesend. All four Schools are now thriving with exceptional talent; this has enabled Hollywood PA to create our very own free Children’s Talent Agency “Hollywood PA Agency” in 2018, directed by Debi Li Smart. The School continues to grow from strength to strength and in 2016 we introduced our Academy. This allows students to focus their training on individual aspects of dance with our highly talented and specialised teachers.
To help your child find their sparkle by providing a valuable service; one that is professional, one that teaches your child a high quality foundation in dance, drama and singing, one that encourages self-esteem, and one that develops a love of and appreciation for the art of performing . Hollywood PA will offer your child the chance to pursue a career in the arts or simply to start a great loved hobby.With our friendly , talented and carefully chosen staff.

Over the years our Hollywood PA stars have performed live at world-class events across a number of venues, alongside famous singers and athletes. We aim to provide our students with as many opportunities and experiences as we can, giving them amazing memories and as much time under the spotlight as they deserve. We host an annual School show at The Mick Jagger theatre focusing on all classes and everything we teach the children throughout the year.
