Akosua Boakye BEM, Founder of AkomAsa Performing Arts Academy, Children’s Casting Coordinator for Disney’s West End musical The Lion King, Dance lecturer and PhD researcher at Canterbury Christ Church University.

AkomaAsa amalgamates Western and African diasporic performing arts, leading the way in developing young talent for careers in dance and the performing arts industry in Britain.

Summer time is the ideal period to focus on and learn more about the social, cultural and creative world we live in. At the AkomaAsa Summer School young people are challenged within an intercultural programme to confidently express themselves through arts & crafts, to drum, sing, dance and act, put it all together in musical theatre and perform to an audience. AkomaAsa works to engage and inspire young people to become socially, culturally and artistically knowledgeable. Our process is aimed at encouraging young people to build self-esteem, commit to learning and improve their ability to work in a manner that maximizes their capabilities.

Our mission is to create pathways and progression routes into mainstream dance and performing arts and, develop the next generation of culturally diverse young artist to aspire achieve what they desire in life.

This summer we have master classes with West End musical artist and workshops with some of the best companies in the arts sector.
