A Kidderminster College learner has become one of just ten dancers in the country to be awarded a scholarship from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation to continue her studies.
Amy, who lives in Worcester, has gained a place at Bird College which auditions more than 1,250 candidates each year for its available 100 places. She has also received a Dance and Drama Award (DaDA) which is only awarded to exceptionally talented performing arts students.
The college also has former dance students at all the major UK dance schools, including Laine Theatre Arts and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance.
Others have gone on to study at Northern Ballet, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, SLP College, Urdang Academy, Body Work Company Dance Studios, London Studio Centre and Guildford School of Acting, all leading schools in their field.
Anna Lines, course leader for dance, said: “I am delighted with Amy’s success which further builds on our reputation as a place where learners can achieve their dreams and gain the right training so they can get exciting jobs in the dance industry.
Amy said: “I am so happy that I made the decision to come to Kidderminster College. I have had the most amazing training to help me reach my dream.”
