The show yesterday was absoloutley fantastic. Everyone looked like they
were enjoying performing and it showed. Since Joy and Ajay have been coming to Dante they have both become more confident.
Joy, I was blown away by her animation and confidence yesterday not to mention her voice.
Ajay, well I would never of thought that he would of got this far a few months ago. Remember the "I
can't do it" little boy? Normally the night before anything so big we would of had tears and he
would of been awake half the night tossing and
turning. Saturday night, Ajay got his costume ready, then himself ready for bed and then said "I am a little nervous about tomorrow" I reassured him as I always do. He went to bed....... I sat waiting for him to come down and start the worrying! He did not come down infact he went straight to sleep! He knew what he was doing and was happy with his part.
Faith loves coming too and she said "I want to do that again,when are we?"
Steve and I are both so grateful to you all for the patience and belief in our children. We always believe in them, but sometimes it takes someone else to too.
I could go on and on and on how they all love Dante and you all....
When i was just 13, I joined Dante Academy of Performing Arts in Stubbington. It was a long way to travel every saturday from where I live, but it was all worth it and if I wasn't 18, i'd still do it.
I never believed in myself or had the confidence to tell everyone I wanted to be a performer. Dante honestly brought everything they
could out of me for the 4 years I was there.
I always say it was the teachers at Dante who have taken me here, and I always will. People don't realise the amazing work they do with their students, and the opportunities they gave each and every one of us. Out of all teachers, every one of them helped me and gave me that confidence to carry on in Musical Theatre. Anne Allen, the singing teacher, worked wonders with me, she persuaded me to audition for a part and put that faith in me, when i'd never sung in front of anyone before. And with singing now, whatever I do, I will always thank her.
Not just Anne, but every teacher has a bond with the students, so they can tackle that student to get the best out of them week in, week out. They all work so incredibly hard and I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for me.
I accidentally came across Dante, and came out of it with some of the best teaching in Acting, Singing and Dancing that I will probably ever have. Dante Academy and it's teachers will always be the reason behind whatever I do in this industry, and i'm sure every other student could say the same. I just want to carry on my training now to an even higher level, and pay them back for everything that they did for me when I was there.
Dante is absolutely amazing:0)
