"The best part of our course is the many opportunities we get to gain real performance experience and work with groups and organisations outside class. For example in just one year, we worked with the Rambert Dance Company, took part in the Big Dance challenge and performed in the Diorama Summer Arts Festival in Camden. Also we always have support from our teachers even outside College time."
