RMC Academy of Theatre Performance was founded by brother and sister duo Rachel and Matthew Croke in 2017. Since opening its doors RMC has become a dedicated dance family and one of the most upcoming theatre dance schools in South Yorkshire. The professional dancing duo trained and performed together in Sheffield from a young age before following different journeys professionally.
Both bring a wealth of experience to the school. Rachel trained at Bird College in Kent graduating with a First-Class BA Hons degree in Dance and Theatre Performance. She went on to succeed in a variety of professional contracts before embarking on her teaching career and is now a Licentiate member of the International Dance Teachers Association. Matthew trained at Laine Theatre Arts in Surrey and has since enjoyed a successful career in London’s West End with leading roles in Wicked, Singin’ in the Rain, Chicago and most recently the title role of Aladdin in Disney’s West End Production Aladdin at the Prince Edward Theatre.
It had always been an ambition of theirs to work together professionally and opening RMC was the perfect opportunity to make that dream a reality.
