Academy Kidz only recruits children from it's carefully developed home grown Drama workshop scheme in Derbyshire. We also have an affiliation with a Leicestershire based Drama School to cover a greater area and provide the industry with a greater choice of chilren. We ensure that all artists are trained and well behaved on set.
All child artists are licenced and we have a great link with the local education authorities - a plus for Directors needing help at short notice! We also have a large pool of fully vetted, Registered Chaperones to accompany children on set.
