Welcome To ZAZZ
The Home of Houghton Dance & Performing Arts Academy
Zazz was established over 25 years ago (1984) as a dance school
in Houghton-le-Spring (between Durham and Sunderland in the
North-East of England). It opened new premises in Empire House,
Houghton-le-Spring in 2000, and has become one of the largest
Dance and Performing Arts centres in the North-East of England.
The last twelve years have also seen Zazz grow to host many shows and events both at Empire House and at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Disney Land Paris and Cruise Ships to name but a few. As well as staging theatre performances we also run all kinds of events such as Band Nights and Themed Parties. The venue holds full licenses and is adaptable for all kinds of events owning its own staging, theatre lighting and sound systems. As well as fully qualified teachers we also employ a fulltime technical director who oversees all functions. continue reading... STAGE & TV PERFORMANCES
