We are absolutely thrilled to announce the wonderful news that one of our eleven-year-old students is able to follow her dreams. After two rigorous auditions, and a nail-biting wait, we are delighted to announce that she has just accepted a full-time place at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, (formerly Arts Educational) in Hertfordshire, with a scholarship.
She will begin there in September 2017, and will study specialist vocational dance training alongside her academic subjects.
The school has produced some of the top names in film, TV and show business, including Dame Julie Andrews, Daisy Ridley, Jane Seymour OBE, Jessica Brown Findlay, Lily James and Sarah Brightman.
Musicals (both West End and touring productions) are filled with their alumni, and students have gone on to illustrious careers joining companies such as The Royal Ballet, New York City Ballet and English National Ballet.
We will be so sad for her to leave (especially, after having taught her from the age of five, as an absolute beginner). However, she has always had a very special gift, which has been apparent since her very first lesson, and we are delighted that she is going to one of the top performing arts schools in the country.
