DEPUTY PRINCIPAL & Dance tutor
I am currently studying for a BA (Hons) in Music Theatre at The University of Central Lancashire. I have been dancing since I was two years old and was lucky enough to have studied Ballet with a professional ballet dancer in Switzerland for a year at five years old. I have also been lucky enough to have seven years experience teaching dance. At such a young age I feel truly blessed to have had, and continue to be given, the opportunity to teach, especially young people. Musical theatre has been a massive part of my life for a very long time and I have performed roles from Molly in “Ghost” to The Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz”. Not only have I performed in a range of shows, but I have choreographed them too which is an absolute dream of mine, to perform in and choreograph shows. In high school despite being extremely academic, I knew that wasn’t the path I wanted, so I got my theatre studies and dance GCSE’s and theatre studies A level, obtaining an A* in theatre studies which I was extremely proud of. Going into my third and last year of university I have gained so much knowledge and will be leaving with so much more than a degree, it has furthered me as a person and not just a performer and I hope to pass this onto the children I get to teach. Although my career passion drifted from ballet to musical theatre during high school after having been a part of multiple stage schools from age nine, my love for dance has never gone and I’m thrilled to be teaching it again as it means I get to pass that on. After university I hope to further my learning at drama school doing a masters degree, move to London and start up a career on the stage. If I can help any one child to realise and pursue their dreams of theatre then I’m doing my job.
I’m going into my third year of studying a BAHons in Music Theatre at the University of Central Lancashire. I have always loved performing musical theatre since my first role of Cha-Cha in Grease aged 12, the thrill I got from performing in front of an audience was amazing and I knew I wanted to do it in further education! I then studied Performing arts, Theatre studies and Dance at College and that just furthered my love of Musical Theatre. Since then I have gone to perform in a wide range of shows including ‘Guys and Dolls’, ‘Spring Awakening’ and the song cycle ‘Closer than Ever’ to name a few. The skills that I have gained while performing in all these shows and while being at university are something that I really want to pass on to children so they can gain the confidence they need to perform and to have fun whilst doing it! I first started teaching children when I volunteered as a Brownie guide at my local Brownies but I had to give it up to move to university but I have always admired working with children as they have a great outlook on performing and they seem to enjoy it as much as I did at that age. After university I hope to go on and further my musical theatre career by doing a masters degree at Drama School and then going to sing on cruise ships! I can’t wait to see the kids grow into amazing young performers with the help of myself and the team at School for Stage!
Natasha is currently in her third year of university studying ‘Music Theatre’ at UCLan. She has been performing since I was 3 years old and has the strongest passion for music theatre. She has been lucky enough to be in some amazing productions and roles from ‘Eponine’ in Les Miserables to ‘Rizzo’ in GreaseI other productions include ‘Nunsense’, ‘Children of Eden’ and ‘Closer Than Ever’. . She has taught gymnastics and been a part of a stage school when she was younger and is so happy to bring the magic that she was inspired by! She has ambitions to further my knowledge and career within music theatre and looks to performing in the industry. She absolutely loves working at School For Stage because the children are so creative and energetic and bring so much to the lessons already.
