The Biz was started in 2008, Samantha the director was tired of tours and ready to settle near her parents in Boston, working at other theatre schools in between her professional singing career she decided to start her own school, one that was inclusive and where every child mattered. Starting alone with only one other teacher over the years we have grown and expanded our team to over 12 teachers who are trained professionals with just as much passion and drive as she has. We started in rental rooms in various halls and social clubs to now our own custom built school. We started with around 15 students and have now well over 200 on our books. The ‘first generation biz’ was a Wednesday night Theatre group and street dance, we now open 7 days a week offering a whole host of lessons from singing, acting, dancing and music tuition. We work out reach in 5 different schools and this is something in 2021 we will be expanding upon as well as offering in house GCSE’s to local schools and Biz students.

We also have our own show troupe- this troupe for the students considering a career in the industry and the classes run at that pace. They have performed at the 02, Her Majesty’s, London Palladium and next year on Broadway.

The Biz has kept its core beliefs but grown and developed more than I could have dreamt all those years ago and we can’t wait to show you what’s next…
