I could return home on my days off and work as a teaching assistant in a dance school. Making it possible to finance myself and aiding my studies to gain teaching qualifications at college.

I was lucky to graduate without any large debts so I could focus on auditioning, finding work and then enjoy contracts without paying off fees.

Renaissance arts was the pivotal investment in my career because I was provided with the tools and audition techniques to gain work and have a long career in the industry. I call upon my training everyday at work and I’m very grateful that I chose Renaissance Arts.
