About Us

Our Story

In 2020 Managing owner & Performance Arts teacher Tashai Simons started her own Arts Academy called New Rising Arts in a little hall in Milnerton, after working as the Arts HOD in a local school for 3 years. She started with 2 students and grew to teach Dance, Drama, Piano, Vocals, Flexinastix, and Visual Arts in the local scouts hall in 2021. In 2022 New Rising Enterprises teamed up with Deborah & Steve, private angel investors,  to add ceramics offerings to the list of creative activities, and scale our creative business to a new level in our own venue at The Studio, Milnerton.

From humble beginnings to now; We currently have a team of 15 incredibly talented and passionate educators who teach over 48 different classes every week! Our aim, as always, is not competition, nor perfection, but rather creating a safe, supportive & inspiring space for adults and children to grow their creative passion in Milnerton. We are the only place where you can do Saxophone, Trombone, Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Dance, Drama, Film Production, Pottery, Flexinastix, Kids Parties, Corporate Team Building & Year End events, Holiday programs, Specialist Workshops, or even host your own offering in 1 central, safe & well-equipped space!
Come join us, let’s get creative!
