ABOUT
me be me

Mebeme Academy is a performing arts school that inspires and educates children in the wonderful world of performing arts. The academy offers generalised performing arts classes that focus on the three disciplines of singing, dance and drama for ages five and up.

These classes will not only teach children performance skills, but will also encourage children to engage in the creative process and express their own ideas... Children are full of good ideas! The academy also offers specialised dance classes: american jazz dance syllabus (AJDA), ballet syllabus (BBO), musical theatre and preschool dance classes.

There is also a specific Performance Class where children can work towards showcasing their talents at events around Christchurch (including regular appearances on What Now!) Mebeme's aim is to encourage confidence and creativity in young performers and inspire the future stars of tomorrow.
