Since the age of 12 we have trained at Michelle Matthews All stars, where we learn freestyle disco dance (our dominant style). In effect we are both championship dancers, competing at a national level. Therefore we have achieved a variety of titles, some of which are as follows: Wessex Freestyle Championships Winners 2012-2017, Sussex Champions, Oxford Star Champions 2012-2017, Dance Factor Winner, Grande National Winners, Southern Area Champions 2012-2017, South coast Championship Winners 2012-2017. Being in a competitive style has allowed us to be highly motivated and to strive to become the best. Dealing with any defeats has enabled us to not only improve as dancers but to prepare us for the competitive media industry.
Recently we have started training at Stage Door where we practise ISTD Ballet and Modern. I believe that our knowledge in the foundations of dance is extremely important and has led to us being well-rounded dancer.
2 years ago we both achieved top grades in our GCSE’s gaining a total of 9 A*’s, 9 A’s and 4 B’s. We are currently taking 3 A Levels in Dance, Drama and Physical Education at St Peters Catholic School. I believe these subjects link well with the performance industry and would be beneficial for most jobs. As a result of our studies, we have had 7 years experience of acting as well as a year of singing.
The combination of our training in dance, singing and acting has led to the multiple offers we have received from the top performing arts colleges. Earlier this year we were offered places at Urdang Academy, Italia Conti and Performers College.
