Every community should have one of these…

Beating at the heart of the vibrant Nottingham creative quarter this company have transformed a tired building in to a hive of activity. Providing vocational as well as recreational courses the performing arts academy has already made a massive impact on the surrounding area with its innovative training and lifestyle classes. It is looking for funding to improve the premises further which will allow further top quality vocational training only traditionally seen in London as well as much needed lifestyle classes.

The Pitch

Aeda is an aspirational academy providing world class vocational education and accessible recreational courses promoting strength, health and wellness to everyone regardless of age and ability.

Now in their second year of trading they are on track to provide a pre-professional dance programme and Foundation Year training starting this year. They regularly work with children and adults nurturing talent and developing enthusiasm in all major disciplines of performing arts.

The loan will add to the amazing work they have undertaken in improving facilities which will allow even more opportunities for classes. It will be serviced by the regular training and tuition that is already happening at the centre, from preparing students for professional certifications to weekly vocational classes.

Aeda will become part of a regional and national initiative helping those pupils who need the training which is currently only available in London.
