I'm originally from Yorkshire and trained at Lets Act as a child. Miss Amy guided me through all of my LAMDA exams, gaining a distinction at every grade. I also obtained Grade 8 qualifications for the Violin, Musical Theatre and Classical Singing.

I've always loved performing in any shape or form, but singing has always been my main interest. I really like geeking out over different methods and techniques and always have done - focusing on Opera, Classical Singing and Musical Theatre.

At the age of 13 I gained a place in the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, progressing to their Main Choir/Chamber Choir at 18. With NYCGB I have had fantastic experiences, such as singing in the BBC Proms, touring China and performing in numerous concerts at the Royal Albert Hall.

I started gaining teaching experience when I was 16 by assisting my singing teacher at his stage school in Sheffield, and I began teaching for Lets Act at 18 when I moved to the south to train at a drama school called the Guildford School of Acting. I am currently in my final year at GSA on their BA Actor-Musician course, where I received a scholarship award in my first year. My course buddies and I are about to transfer one of our third year productions to the Charing Cross Theatre in London's West End - we're so excited!! (And rather terrified).

In my spare time you'll either find me teaching myself new instruments (I'm currently attempting the Viola, Banjo and Tin Whistle) and doing anything and everything with my lovely bunch of friends. Tea drinking is also a major part of my life - Yorkshire Tea all the way, obviously.

Miss Amy and Lets Act have given me so much and I'm incredibly grateful to have been a part of this amazing family for so long. I don't know where I'd be or what I'd be doing without this school! I'm constantly inspired by the talent and enthusiasm of the children we teach and I feel very fortunate to get to watch them grow as performers and as people.

My name is Miss Amy and I am one of the dance teachers. I have just finished my first year teaching at Lets Act, which has been wonderful!

I am currently studying a full time MA in professional acting at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts and will be graduating in December. 

I am passionate about children expressing themselves and exploring their creativity. I love watching children discover new styles of dance and making their own choreography and moves. It was something I always loved doing as a child in dance classes.

THE BREAKDOWN

Training: As a child I trained in lots of different dance styles and did examinations and competitions in classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, street and cheerleading! I am now currently studying an MA at Drama School, so it is never too late to follow your dreams!

I love teaching singing, it’s amazing seeing children surprise themselves when they hit a note they didn’t think they could, or sing a song in front of an audience. I am a trainer singing and I would say my speciality is vocal technique, and helping the kids with acting through song which is a very important part of singing, especially in Musical Theatre. 

THE BREAKDOWN 

Training: It’s Very important for me to mention that the head of Let’s Act MISS AMY was my first ever drama teacher in Doncaster (which was amazing!!) I then moved to London and attended the Ju- nior school at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre arts from the age of 14-16 and then continued on to do the 3 year Musical Theatre Diploma there, where I trained in Acting, Singing and Dance. 

Favourite musical: I love Les Miserables but recently have become obsessed with WAITRESS 

Favourite animal:DOGS! 

Favourite children’s book: I loved ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’ 

Favourite food: Spaghetti Bolognese or Chinese 

Favourite Disney song: Colors of the wind from Pocahontas 

Biggest achievement at Lets Act: After only a week at Summer Camp, watching my class perform ‘The Little Mermaid’ to an audience. I was so proud of them and they were so happy when they got a big round of applause from everyone at the end. 

Biggest achievement outside of Lets Act: I loved playing Mary in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. It’s a film I love and it was lovely to portray that story. 

One thing you would like the children to take away from Lets Act: That with Confidence and Self Belief, you can do anything!
