Cheerleading, dance and drama school is on the move in Uckfield

RB Arts Academy, which runs Spirit Elite Cheersquad and Elite Dance and Drama Academy, is moving to new premises.

A unit at 52-60 Bell Lane, Uckfield – previously occupied by The Iron House gym, is being stripped out and refurbished ready for the start of the new term in September.

Owner Bexx Boutle said she was very excited about the move which would enable the business to expand and offer additional classes.

Sprung flooring

The new premises will include a cheerleading room with sprung flooring, a dance studio fully equipped with mirrors and sound system, a singing and drama room, reception area and changing rooms.

Bexx is hoping to run more pre-school classes, classes for mothers and babies, and possibly classes for older people too.

Bexx, who is mother of six-week-old Jack, is being helped with the work on the new premises by her firefighter husband James, architect father Dave Carr, builder brother Matt Carr, and students and parents too when the decorating needs to be done.


She said: “I am very grateful to everyone who is helping me.”

Summer workshops

Elite Dance and Drama summer workshops will be held at the end of this month at the current RB Arts Academy premises in Bell Walk.

The workshops for two to four-year-olds, and four to 16-year-olds will run from Monday, July 29, to Wednesday, July 31.

The days will be themed to include Aladdin, LOL dolls and Trolls and sessions will be held in the mornings from 10am-12.30pm for two-to-four-olds and over the whole day from 10am to 3pm for four to 16-year-olds.

Crafts, singing, dancing

The workshops will be filled with crafts, singing, dancing, and a performance for parents at the end.
