“I’ve always had an interest in musical theatre and when I visited the College, seeing the facilities and meeting the teachers, made me think I could achieve and progress to where I wanted to be.
“During the course, my confidence in performing and dancing has really increased. I have improved my technique in a variety of dance styles and I have been given the opportunity to showcase my singing in shows. We take part in a variety of shows in front of live audiences in the College’s theatre which is great to practice our skills. “I’ve gained so much, I started with not much experience in dance and now I have taken teaching qualifications in IDTA, Modern Jazz, and freestyle, which will help me in the future to become a Dance Teacher after I have finished my performing career. As part of the course we learn how to stand out in auditions and, out of the four dance auditions I’ve taken part in this year, I’ve been offered places at all four. “I would recommend studying dance at the College to anyone. The tutors are amazing, and I feel I have the skills and qualifications to start a successful career in the industry. I have now accepted a scholarship at the Hammond School to study a Level 6 Trinity Diploma in Dance/Musical Theatre. Following this, I will audition to work in the industry as a Commercial Dancer and Musical Theatre Performer.”
