Have you ever thought about dancing or theatre as a hobby? I have been dancing at Marron Theatre Arts for eight years and I love it. With the training here, you get the skills you need to become a great dancer if you’re willing to put the work in. You also learn skills even if you don’t want to dance as a profession, such as teamwork and determination.
Marron is run by Vicky Richardson – a loveable, welcoming teacher who is strict, but only attempts to get the best out of each of her students. She cares about our future, which is proven by former students who have gone on to great things. For example, Emma Caffrey is now playing the lead in 42nd Street in London, and Kirsty Little is starring in Mamma Mia! on the Royal Caribbean Cruise.
There are classes for students from the ages of two to eighteen, where everyone can study a wide range of skills and dance styles. Marron Theatre Arts provides lots of opportunities for students too, such as workshops with guest choreographers and even pantomimes on live stages, such as the Theatre Royal Newcastle. In fact, dancers at Marron are called back to Danny and Clive’s renowned Christmas panto as producers think the school creates the perfect kind of dancers.
While being a student at Marron Theatre Arts, I feel I have learned valuable people skills and made great friends. The environment inside the studio is great and everyone there makes you feel welcome and involved, even if you’re at your first class. It is amazing.
