ABOUT US

Let your passion shine!

History

Hikari Arts is a friendly teaching studio offering  individual and small group tuition which students love! Formally 'Swindon Piano N Drama', we started with just ten students in a one room. Over time, more and more students started coming through our doors! Now eight years on and we have dozens of people taking part in our creative programmes! In 2018 we changed our name to 'Hikari Arts' and have been growing and going strong ever since!

Our Name

'hikari'

Hikari (光) is the Japanese word for 'light' or 'shine' in Japanese. this represents our ongoing ethos that people shine when they are allowed to be themselves and do what they enjoy! We have been delighted to see our students grow in skill and confidence with every lesson they take.

our owner

Nina (our half Japanese, sushi loving owner) is passionate about sharing the amazing Japanese culture with others through Hikari Arts. So of course we thought it would be apt to have a unique name which reflects her ethnic roots.

Christian ethos

Hikari Arts is  faith inspired and built upon Christian principles. Our name reflects the verse in the Bible: “I am the Light of the world. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8: 12)

Our Location

Our office and studios are based in the beautiful Town Hall in central Swindon. The Town Hall is a Grade II listed building with a rich history. It is home to 'Swindon Dance' which been a leading innovator in dance development in the UK for over three decades. We benefit from our unique association with Swindon Dance as well as all the superb facilities. This includes a professional theatre which we use for our students shows!
