|Course:||EXTENDED DIPLOMA IN PERFORMING ARTS|
I came to The Henley College from Chiltern Edge School. I chose to study the Extended Diploma in Performing Arts because it incorporates the three things I love the most; acting, dancing and singing. I have really enjoyed working with the other students on my course, we help and encourage each other, my teacher has also been really supportive and is always available to offer advice.
I would like to pursue a career in musical theatre so studying this course has been perfect for me. When I finish college I hope to get a place at the Urdang Academy and then move to America where I can pursue my dream of being a commercial dancer.
