No rest in my repertoire

Hellooooo people, I hope you’ve had a wonderful week! It was my third Saturday at Italia Conti in Plymouth yesterday! It was another great one 🙂

I started an extra class in ballet and that was fun. I used to do ballet a long, long, long etc. time ago – actually I think there’s a picture of me in my ballet costume on my about me page (omg what a embarrassing photo!).

Anyway I can’t remember a thing from back then but it was ok as we were doing similar things as we do in modern (dance) and it’s not too hard as I’ve gone in at a easy grade to start with. The ballet teacher is also the head of the school and she’s really nice! Only problem is I really need some ballet shoes now. Look I fished out my old ones from when I was three, do you think they’ll fit !?

IMG_0439Got some thank you shout outs this week. It was lovely to hear from Lucinda Cowden from Neighbours – how exciting!!! Check out Lucinda’s message on my Facebook page. Massive thanks to Rachel and Marieke for making donations on my Go Fund Me page – this has paid for my first installment this term at Italia Conti. Next installment due end of October…

Piano lessons going well and cracking on with Grade 5 in Singing. Been practicing Lay Me Down (Sam Smith) and Yours (Ella Henderson). I will be getting my You Tube page up and running soon so you can hear a bit….

A nervous first day…

No photos please!!!

Hello world! This is my first ever blog and I’m not really sure what I’m doing! I started my first day at drama school yesterday. It was very scary. I had to get up at 6 o’clock  in the morning and my parents drove me all the way down to Plymouth. Everyone was very welcoming at Italia Conti but most of the others joining yesterday were younger than me. I felt quite out of place.

The first class was singing, one of my favourite things ever so I couldn’t wait to give it a go. We did warm up exercises then sang together then some people sung solo in front of the class. They were amazing! Then I found my way to the next class which was jazz (dancing). I haven’t danced very much in the past so I was quite nervous. The others were younger than me but they were really good.

We did musical production next which is a mixture of things. We did a bit of dancing then sung a couple of Christmas songs (for the Christmas production) then did a bit of a routine to Little Mix’s Black Magic. This was really cool coz I love Little Mix.

After that was lunch, more singing and lots of acting. I loved the acting because it’s another one of my favourite things to do. Last class was modern (dance) which was ok but I’m not feeling very confident about my dancing.

Well it wasn’t too hard to write my first blog. I hope you enjoyed reading and will follow me on my journey. If you want to find out more about me and my dreams please read my About Me page and you can leave comments for me too – I’d love to hear from you.
