Success Stories

Many of our past participants have gone on to flourish in the performing arts and creative industries (TV presenters, actors, musical theatre performers, dance tutors, arts admin etc) and we hope that we helped them to prepare for their careers through our excellent skills training and performance opportunities.

We are equally as proud of our participants that have gone on to excel in non-arts careers and have used the key skills developed through our training and performance opportunities such as team work, excellent communication, confidence and self esteem to become role models and work hard in careers they are passionate about.
