Welcome to HSPA

Now is the time to invest in your child's future.

The School's Founder:  Dale Hartley-Brown B.A., L.T.C.L.

Hi, I'm Dale, and through my school I offer a wide range of Performing Arts classes, teaching Acting, Singing  and Dance skills including Jazz, Contemporary, Tap and Hip Hop to children as well as  adults in the Rangiora and North Canterbury area.  My school presents two major Children's Theatre Musical Stage shows each year and gives my students a fun, confidence building environment in which to follow their dreams.
I feel strongly about the skill set that performing arts gives it's students, both those who wish to perfom and those who wish to gain life skills.  In our new Modern Learning Environments, the ability to speak out, work well with others, and stand out from a crowd are all attributes that are increasingly valuable. 
I am glad to offer a place for people to find these strengths.

Our students can sit Drama, Speech & Singing exams through Trinity College, London
Our Dance students can sit Levels throught Dance NZ Made.
