UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts student, Amelie Royle impressed at her auditions and will now star with West End Kids, one of the UK’s best song and dance troupes at the age of 17!
Amelie is enrolled on the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts course, based at our Amersham Campus. She recently impressed a panel of judges and will perform in front of thousands of people this winter in one of the UK’s best song and dance troupes.
Amelie spoke about her audition and said, “My audition for the troupe was really challenging, but I was so determined to do my best that I gave it everything I had until my legs felt like jelly. I was in shock when I found out I had been offered a place.
She continued, "I’m most excited to perform at the Great Ormond Street Christmas Parties. West End Kids have been performing at this event for years so I am excited to see it first-hand. I know it’s going to be a very special few days."
Martin Williams, founder and artistic director of West End Kids added, “We are delighted to welcome Amelie. She is a talented young performer and we are confident she will be an asset to our troupe. Our audition process is thorough. To be part of our troupe, you not only have to be a strong singer and dancer, but you have to be prepared to work hard. We are very demanding, but we know that talented kids love to be pushed hard and so that is what we do."
A huge congratulations to our talented student, Amelie on this amazing achievement!
