Arts1 School of Performance: Ellis

Student Story


I’ve been attending Arts1 since I was 4 and it’s been the best experience of my life! I have learned a lot of things from Arts1 and I don’t know what I would do without them. The training is fantastic! James has always been my vocal coach and identified a couple of vocal issues and he helped and supported me every step of the way to a full recovery. Since I’ve been at Arts1 I’ve had a lot of amazing opportunities including performing in the touring production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, fantastic yearly shows, festivals and carnivals and my first acting job featuring in the M&S Christmas advert in 2016. Performing is what I love to do and what I want to do in the future and everyone at Arts1 has always been so friendly and supportive and the teachers have given me incredible feedback. Since I have been at Arts1 I have accomplished things I never thought I could, but with them I have grown in confidence and ability year on year. There has never been a time where I thought I was in the wrong place because they are always so accepting and positive. I know wherever I go, whatever I do in my future, I will always have Arts1 beside me.
