Laura- Principal at Little Voices Bolton & Bury

Hi, My name is Laura and I am the principal of Little Voices Bolton & Bury. I took over my centres in 2020 and what a challenging but wonderful start it has been! Being a primary teacher of 11 years with a specialism in drama and music, I know all too well how important performing arts is in a very tight and busy curriculum. Being able to help develop a child’s confidence and love of musical theatre is a dream come true! Outside of teaching, I am represented by a fantastic acting agency and have taken part in many theatre shows and film productions. I love stepping into an acting role and I also get to share this passion of musical theatre with the next generation! Lessons are not only tons of fun but we also get to develop children’s talents, confidence and life skills. I have a wonderful team of tutors who I work alongside to make our centres as incredible as they are. Meet my amazing team below…
