Young dancers secure place at top colleges

A WORTHING dance course has a 100 per cent success rate for students securing places at top performance colleges in London since it opened two years ago.

Students aged 16-18 at the Young Dancers Foundation, in Worthing Leisure Centre, successfully secured places at prestigious London colleges such as: Bird College, Performers College, London Studio Centre, The Centre of Performing Arts and Masters College.

Justine Morgan, principal and founder of the course, has taught dance for 20 years and has used her links to the industry to bring leading professionals to Worthing to give tutorials.

Justine said: “There’s nothing like this for dance performance students outside of London.

“The idea is the students don’t have to travel to London. The students we have in the room are not just from Worthing. They travel here especially for the course.”
