E.P. Academy

E.P. Academy have had an amazing 6 months. Their dance summer programme had young people create their own music video, with weekly sessions to keep fit, socialise and have fun. In December 2016, E.P. Academy gave a fantastic showcase to friends and family. We were lucky to have Barnet TV film on the day. Classes are open to young people 14 – 19 years, so if this is something that is of interest, please feel free to get in contact or just drop in to a class.
