Shaw-based performing arts professional Fiona Da-Silva Adams and husband Paul have performed a revolution in their working lives.
Paul has recently left his job as head of technical operations at Isys Group to support Fiona’s rapidly expanding Revolution Performing Arts business, which delivers after school clubs and open sessions in singing, dance and drama for primary and secondary age children all over Swindon.
The business began as Drama Babes in 2007, but quickly responded to the growing demand for performing arts for older children. Revolution is now active in a number of primary schools in North and West Swindon including Orchid Vale, Bridlewood, Shaw Ridge, Oakhurst, Abbey Meads and Haydon Wick, as well as offering open sessions at Cricklade United Reform Church.
The latest development is RPA Rapport for 11 to 16 year olds, which runs as an open session on Thursdays, 6.30pm to 8pm at Nova Hreod dance studio.
Explaining the rationale behind the new group Fiona said: “Over the years I have had to say goodbye to many children as they move from primary to secondary school. RPA Rapport is the result of much nagging by them”
So husband Paul is joining the business at a very busy time. Commenting on their decision to join forces Fiona said: “Paul spent one day with me and couldn’t believe how I got everything done. But my passion is developing and helping children, and now Paul’s on board I can get on with that and leave the spreadsheets to him”
