Over the last few years, Associated Studios has been based in Barons Court, West London renting spaces from St Albans Church. But as the reputation and the school continues to develop and grow, it was time for the school to find its own home. The success of the school’s alumni is astounding. Alumni have appeared in various West End shows including Kinky Boots, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Rock of Ages, The Bodyguard, Mamma Mia, Motown, Beautiful and many tours and productions all around the world including: Wicked, The Sound of Music, The Lion King, The Colour Purple, Elf The Musical, Dirty Dancing, Hairspray, Rent, Sister Act, Evita, The Wizard of Oz, Jesus Christ Superstar and many more. It’s safe to say that Associated Studios wanted to find a home, not only to reflect the high quality of its courses, but also to reflect the calibre of its students, alumni and staff.

“I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to announce that Associated Studios has moved into its new home at 204 Latimer Road in Kensington and Chelsea. I am so proud at the rate the academy is moving. We constantly have graduates working on tours, in the West End, on ships and performing all around the world. The tutors we have here are extraordinary, they are all working professionals but first and foremost deeply care about the students and are excellent teachers. It seemed only right that we found a home that matched the high quality of training we offer. I was immediately drawn to the Kensington and Chelsea area. It’s an incredibly affluent area with Westfield Shopping Centre and Portobello Market both in walking distance. Situated in Zone 2 and on the circle line, it’s incredibly easy to get to with London Paddington station only 7 minutes away by tube. As we constantly have casting directors, agents and industry professionals visiting us; it was important to me to ensure our school remained easily accessible. The building itself is stunning. The 3 floored building is vast and trendy, with wood effect flooring throughout, gas central heating, good natural light and a kitchen and WC on each floor. We are currently having some building work done to ensure that we are using the space to its full potential. Once the building work has been completed, we will have three large studio spaces suitable for dancing, rehearsals and fitness classes as well as singing and acting. Here at Associated Studios, we also pride ourselves on running regular Masterclasses and Workshops. Coming up in the next month, we are running a workshop with Pearson Casting and we are delighted to be able to run these sorts of workshops from our new premises. We are incredibly excited about what the future holds for Associated Studios Performing Arts Academy and we can’t wait for everyone to see our new home.”
