We posted this 9 years ago and it popped up on our memory this morning, how apt that after almost five months, today is the day we welcome Sagettes back into the studio for a very small summer school. Can't tell you how exciting it feels to see students back in the studios - virtual hugs all round.
If you feel things so deeply & passionately that you just need to sing about them; if you are so filled with emotion that your body just has to dance; if you love standing in someone else's shoes, reveling in that person's thoughts & feeling, then you are a musical theatre actor and you've just found a home here at SA. ...

Wise words from my old ballet teacher... In conversation with an ex-student and it's set me thinking. It doesn't matter if you're starring in the West End, teaching at your own school or diverting to another profession - a performing arts training is never, ever wasted. It puts you among the most creative, empathetic, generous and courageous individuals in society.

I have MS now......Very tricky......but I'm aware almost all of my coping mechanisms were forged during 7 years at Arts Ed as a child and student. If you've had a good arts training, say a silent thank you. It's a mindset that will support you through everything.Oh, and this is why I'm certain theatre and all arts will emerge triumphant from all this. We're used to hard times. We swallow rejection and disappointment and spit them back out as resilience and fresh ideas. Courage everyone! Better times will come! ... See MoreSee Less
