We are a Professional Performance Academy based in Haworth, West Yorkshire.
Our mission is to be the central hub for young Actor Training in the North of England, and to provide a clear direct route for young performers aged 3-19 who have a passion for performing and have ambitions to work in the television industry. Our team at BOLT Academy promise to give all the support and guidance our students are going to need to succeed. With our tuition and their talent, the sky is the limit!
We also have an established Casting Agency attached to the Academy. As a result of this, we are able to offer our students exciting opportunities to work in television, commercials, theatre, film and radio. We only represent students who train weekly at BOLT Academy.
Our weekly classes are very informative, professional and most importantly…FUN!

Lucie Ridehalgh - "Tyler has only recently joined BOLT academy. He is loving his time there and feels very welcome ,supported and included. He feels more confident and happy to try new things. This is all the more special as he is blind and autistic. Freddie and the team have been fantastic."
Rachel Gilmartin - "Both my boys love going to BOLT Academy. Joshua is really growing in confidence and enjoys all 4 classes he attends. The classes are perfect for him, we had spent alot of time looking into something suitable for him and BOLT Academy is able to offer him singing, dance and acting. Zack enjoys the acting and always says how fun the sessions are! Would recommend to anyone"
Charlotte Cryer - "My little boy is 4 years old & started drama class at BOLT Academy when it first open in January, he literally loves it! Every week he is so excited to go & afterwards comes bounding out with a big smile on his face. He has also started dance classes too which he loves just as much. When i asked him why he enjoys BOLT he said ‘it’s fun, we dance, sing & play lots of games’. Bolt has been amazing over lockdown creating packs to do at home, I really like how they are always trying new things - summer school, student of the month. It seems very focused on trying the best for the students."
Jen Fields - "Both of my children attend BOLT Academy aged 3 and 7, they absolutely love it! My eldest attends all 3 classes - acting, dancing and singing. He loves performing and singing so the classes are perfect for him. My youngest asks everyday if it’s time to go to her classes she loves them that much, she has come on so much with her confidence and again her performing. They have both met new friends and adore the team at BOLT Academy."
