2 years ago

We’d like to share with you some recent SOTA student successes…

SOTA SEED dances her way to the ROYAL BALLET SCHOOL.


Maddie, first found her passion for performing as a SOTA SEED has since danced her way to performing in the Nutcracker and gained a place at the Royal Ballet School.







We are delighted for Maddie and proud to have inspired her first steps towards a professional dancing career.





How stunning is this glimpse of Maddie in the Nutcracker?




FIZZING with pride for AIDAN

SOTA Pupil, Aidan, has been busy touring the UK and Ireland with the Disney tour of Bedknobs and Broomsticks and he has since been cast as Fizzy in the new production of Bugsy Malone which is now in rehearsals.

“The show will open at Theatre Royal Bath with performances from 2 July 2022, followed by Birmingham Rep from 27 July 2022. After that it will visit Newcastle Theatre Royal, Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, Leeds Grand Theatre, Glasgow Theatre Royal, Belgrade Theatre, Coventry, Oxford Playhouse, Sheffield Lyceum Theatre, Leicester Curve, Milton Keynes Theatre, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Hull New Theatre, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Manchester Opera House, Edinburgh Playhouse, Southend Cliffs Pavilion, Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre and Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury with more venues to be announced.

Famous for casting children in adult roles, the musical is set in prohibition era New York and features a gang of mobsters, showgirls, a penniless boxer, a seductive songstress and a plethora of flying custard pies.”


A Choreographical Debut for CJ

SOTA Student and Teacher Trainee, CJ choreographed her first Music Video for emerging Artist Alessandra Boldrini, which launched this week.

CJ said on her website ‘I had such fun bringing Alessandra’s vision to life for her music video ‘Holiday’.

What do all these performers have in common? Hard work, dedication, perseverance, a strong work ethic, and the courage to push themselves to do things that are out of their comfort zones – all necessary skills for a career in performing arts.
