On Saturday 4th of February, we were very lucky to invite Tom Shilcock to North Liverpool Academy to run a commercial dance workshop with our gifted and talented dancers from Years 7 – 13.
Tom has worked with lots of professionals such as Cheryl Cole, Britney Spears, Rihanna and many more. His choreography was very technical with lots of dynamic changes and musicality was essential. He gave our students vital knowledge about the performing arts industry and how to make it as a professional dancer.
We had audition preparation coaching and learnt how to make ourselves stand out when when in large auditions. At the end of the workshop Tom picked out Nikita Simione from Year 10 and asked her to perform on her own, he then said if he was running a real audition he would of selected Nikita due to her determination and focus. He has also invited her to attend a Can You Dance event where there will be scouts.
We had a brilliant day and look forward to practicing our new moves.
