We are excited to announce new to our patrons Amy west and her bio on Danceworld and her career so far.
I attended Danceworld Stage school from the age of 3, and danced here right up to the age of 18 and took my BATD teachers exam before leaving to persue a career at The Urdang Academy where I would later gain a 1st class honours degree in Musical Theatre and Professional Dance.
Danceworld pushed me into giving me the best dance foundation that I could of had to give me the best possible start when going into full time training. I took part in festivals so teachers could tutor me one on one which was extremely beneficial as it got me used to getting pushed physically as well as getting used to how competitive this sport is.
Shows I have been a part of since graduating in 2013 are:
Ensemble cover Mrs Santiago in Ghost, UK Tour
Ensemble, Tophat UK Tour
Swing, Jersey Boys UK Tour
Ensemble 1st Cover Lisa, Mamma Mia! Novello Theatre, London
Swing, 1st Cover Lily St Regis, Annie, Piccadilly Theatre, London
Dance Captain, Swing, 1st cover Lily St Regis Annie, Ed Mirvish Theatre, Toronto
Ensemble 1st Cover Carrie, Eugenius! The Other Palace, London
And currently I am Associate Choreographer, setting up the 2019 UK Tour of Annie.
Without Danceworld’s incredible, passionate teachers I honestly wouldn’t be where I would be today, so it is an honour to become one of its Patrons.
