From Colin Charles
"I am delighted to have taught in the very top colleges for aspiring Musical Theatre performers such as: London Studio Centre, Arts Educational, Urdang Academy, Pineapple Dance studios, Sylvia Young, Ballet Rambert, Performers College, Doreen Bird and was on the assessment board for Mountview College.
At Sylvia Young I was invited to teach as a guest teacher, 11-14 year olds on a regular basis. At Urdang and Arts Educational I also taught within the age brackets of 11-19. I witnessed young people from my classes blossom and become major artists in film, TV and stage. These are now internationally acclaimed such as Tamzin Outhwaite (Eastenders, and Kelly O Bryan (Eternal), and Ashley Walters to name but a few. It was a privilege to witness and support them to fulfill their potential.
Using my vast network of contacts within the entertainment industry, I have wanted to create a school in which young people from any background can have direct access to this training and knowledge. They will learn from the very best professional teachers in the entertainment, west end musical and music industry. "
