The Nicholson Academy (TNA) is a hugely popular family run dance school located in Droylsden, Manchester.
TNA was founded by Brenda Nicholson in 1982 as The Brenda Lee School of Dance operating out of various community buildings. In 2005 Brenda’s daughter Natasha Zauscinski became co-principal before taking over fully in 2014 upon Brenda’s retirement. In 2012 we moved into our own premises which boast three multi- purpose studios, a reception/waiting area plus both male and female changing rooms.
We are a firm favourite due to the range of opportunities we provide our TNA family. Including shows at some of the area’s prestigious theatres, government recognised examinations through the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) and London Academy of Dramatic Arts (LAMDA), local displays and workshops lead by industry professionals.
