New York just one of many highlights in busy Spring itinerary for St. Julie’s pupils
“We had a fun-filled itinerary with workshops at the Broadway dance centre, the Alvin Ailey studios along with the Martha Graham centre too. The students saw the brand new Lloyd Webber “School of Rock” musical followed by another performing session with many Broadway stars. We managed to take in some of the iconic and cultural landmarks too including the Empire State, the Rockefeller centre with ice skating thrown in plus 5th Avenue and some jogging around Central Park…everybody had a fabulous time.”
Pupils selected for the trip are part of the school’s many performing arts companies, whose pedigree will see them participate in a variety of high profile festivals, celebrations and workshops over the coming weeks as Miss Roberts explained:
“St.Julie’s has just been selected for the highly prestigious BBC’s 10 pieces event with auditions already underway. One of our arts companies is heading to Move It 2016 this month, the biggest dance festival of its kind in Europe. We have another company performing at Euro Disney at Easter with yet another drama company ‘Mini Overview’ heading to the West End for a weekend of workshops.”
“I think like any performer, you always want more and that’s very much the case with my students. I’ve performed all over the world in a whole variety of venues, working as a dancer, musical theatre performer, choreographer, teacher and lecturer. To be able to nurture such talent here at St.Julie’s like on the back of my own experiences and see their fantastic progression is so rewarding.
