We asked him 4 questions: What was the highlight of your level 2 course? "End of year show, Leeds Tales. We devised it all ourselves with songs, dances and character sketches." How did the work at level 2 prepare you for level 3? "By giving me a boost in all 3 disciplines, Acting, Singing and Dancing." What are your plans for the future? "After Drama school, looking for work as a performer." What advice would you give to yourself 3 years ago? "Never stop looking for opportunities." Most successful students progress to Higher Education study at college, university or dance academies. A Foundation Degree in Dance is available at Leeds City College. Students can also progress directly into dance-related work. Many 'transferable skills' are developed on the course.
