Dancing her way to success

IMG_6905Former student Emily Harrington came into school recently to pass on her knowledge and experience to Dance and Performing Arts students, taking workshops and answering questions about her life as a professional dancer.

Emily left St. Aidan’s in 2010 and after a foundation course at SLP college in Leeds was awarded a full scholarship to study Musical Theatre and Dance at the Urdang Academy in London.  She graduated last July and has recently successfully auditioned for Starlight Express in Germany; she will join the cast in February playing the role of Ashley and understudying the role of Pearl. It is a fantastic achievement to land a lead role straight out of college – well done Emily!
