The Academy is our training group for younger members (8 years plus) or at the same time older members who are unable to commit to the mostly weekend schedule of the senior group. Currently the Academy practice on a Wednesday evening for two hours with the very occasional Sunday afternoon practice before key events or competitions.

The focus of the Academy is on performance and enjoyment rather than contesting although from 2020 the group will enter some IMG competitions. We can currently accommodate brass or percussion players along with anyone who would like to join the Colourguard

A nominal subscription is paid on a monthly basis which covers the loan of an instrument or equipment, tuition and a uniform where appropriate.

All Academy staff are DBS checked in accordance with government guidelines and a safety officer is in place to ensure safeguarding and standards are constantly maintained.

Cadence Performing Arts are a registered charity (1021652) and all our programmes are funded by member subscriptions, donations and fundraising events. The biggest costs are rehearsal venue hire, transportation and insurance all of which increase each year so we are always looking to supplement our income with regular donations or fundraising ideas. Our members often complete their own fundraising events such as sponsored music marathons, car wash days or gruelling 50 mile walks all of which bring in much needed funds to the group.
