Busybodies opened in 1984, establishing an excellent reputation with examining boards and All England Festivals. Pupils gained outstanding results. In the early 1990s, the teaching faculty expanded.
Many past students are professional actors, dancers and practitioners and they frequently return to Busybodies for workshops. The school benefits from a wide range of professionals working as examiners, actors on television and stage and in various other disciplines in the arts that support the pupils.
Teaching staff hold professional performance experience, outstanding teaching qualifications with internationally recognised exam boards and develop students through outstanding professional classes. Examinations are offered annually in RAD Ballet, IDTA tap, modern and jazz and Trinity drama, with Busybodies being the only fully registered school in Dereham offering this service.
Our wide range of experience in dance, drama and music allows us to guide our pupils in their chosen careers.
