“I would definitely recommend studying at Middlesbrough College. I found that the Level 3 Performing Arts course had a great balance of practical and theory lessons. It is also a great place to learn how to be a professional performer, on and off the stage. I never felt stuck on what to do after College because the teachers had great knowledge and experience of Universities and stage schools.
“After leaving College I successfully gained a place at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). I got to learn from industry professionals such as Dean Lee, Shaun Niles and principal dancers from the Matthew Borne company.
“I also got the opportunity to dance at the Royal Albert Hall for the Salvation Army and perform at ‘Move It’ in my second and third year.
“I really enjoyed studying at LIPA and I can’t thank Middlesbrough College enough for giving me the skills and confidence to help get me there!
“After I graduated from LIPA I was offered a job working for Celebrity Cruises as a dancer and aerial performer on two of their ships! It was an amazing experience.”
