Emma Barr


Originally from Cambridge, Emma has been singing, dancing and acting since the age of 3. After completing her A-Levels she went on to train professionally with the ‘National Youth Music Theatre’ and then at ‘Cambridge Performing Arts at Bodywork Company’ gaining a National Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre with Distinction.


She has extensive experience in both performing and teaching and is very excited to be fulfilling her dream of opening ‘The Barr Academy of Performing Arts’ where she hopes to pass on the knowledge and advice she has learnt so far and nurture and encourage budding performers!
