I've learned a lot about life and the dance industry ... I can't explain how much Shockout Arts prepares you for the dance industry.

"Training at Shockout Arts has provided me with the tools, knowledge, and physical abilities to succeed in the dance industry. Before starting Shockout Arts professional and commercial dance degree course I had little to no technique in the ballet and jazz department and I had little knowledge about the industry and the business side of dance. During my 3 year course I have gained an understanding of my technical training and have improved massively -my flexibility, pirouettes, placement and dynamics have all become incredibly strong and worthy enough for an audition. Learning about the business side of dance - headshots , CVS, showreels, taxes, equity etc are all essential elements that dancers need to be aware of to prepare you for the industry and I feel learning about these things has helped to elevate my career to the next level. Not to mention the incredible commercial training that was offered to me, here I learnt strength, agility, dynamics, flexibility, heel work, hip hop, audition preparation and many other amazing skills that I now apply for my professional work in the industry. After turning just 21 I have been training at Shockout for 3 years alongside working in the industry.

I have worked for: Cheryl Cole, Bebe Rexha, Fifth Harmony, WILL.I.AM, Jess Glynne, Lady Leshurr, Zayn Malik and performances including Xfactor, Swedish Idol, V festival, The Voice, MOBO awards, Brit Awards, Australia Tours, European Tours and UK tours. I'm so appreciative of my training at Shockout Arts and really feel like we have had individual care and attention when it comes to our progress as individuals"
