A family from Marple have won the title of the Best Dance and Performing Arts School in the North with their family run business, Debut Academy of Performing Arts.
The title was won last weekend by the National Entertainment Awards. Ryan James and Jenna Browne both attended Marple Hall High School and along with their mum Carolann Bruce have been running the business since 2004. Ryan has also gained the main role in Starlight Express.
Winning this title puts Stockport on the map and shows that a local family from Marple can achieve their dreams. Students from Marple Hall and Rose Hill attend Debut Academy and without these students and their families who bring them to the school, Debut Academy would not be the school it is today.
Carolann has also just written a book which will be published in February, 'The Dream That Saved My Life'. A talented family from Marple.
