ALUMNI STORY - Rebecca (Class of 2015)

"After completing my GCSE’s and A Levels at Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre, as well as partaking in the school musicals and arts concerts, I auditioned and was accepted onto the degree programme at the prestigious Bird College Conservatoire of Dance and Musical Theatre in London. I trained at Bird for three years, most days were 8:30am starts and finished at 7pm Monday to Friday and outside of classes we had to find the time to complete our academic essays. 

I went on to play the lead roles in my third-year musicals and showcases and gained representation from one of the top Musical Theatre agencies in London. Meanwhile I had auditioned and successfully secured my first job as Ensemble Cover Carmen /Serena / Iris / Mabel and Lamchops in the UK & International Tour of Fame the Musical. 

I graduated from Bird College with a First-Class Degree in Professional Dance and Musical Theatre and began rehearsals for my dream job, a year contract touring round the theatres in the UK as well as International dates in Zurich and Berlin!"

My advice to future JC6 students would be... "Keep believing and valuing yourself. Keep learning and listening. Keep working hard and working smart. Always be grateful, be kind and smile, it costs nothing."
