Leona McDonough-Smith – Dance Level 3

Posted: September 11th 2017

During my first year on the level 3 Dance course, I was able to not only extend my knowledge of dance, but also improve on my practical skills and quality as a performer.

I used to find performing in front of an audience a daunting task, but after this year on the course, my confidence is the highest it’s ever been. Part of this is from being given the opportunity to perform in three different shows throughout the year, and because of this I am now 100% comfortable on the stage. Not only is this down to having more experience, but also from meeting the individuals I had chance to work alongside during the year, who were all unbelievably supportive, accepting and encouraging of everyone on the performance courses.

I particularly enjoyed the fact that the course allowed me to develop more understanding of how the performance industry works, and offered the chance to work within an environment where we were treated as professionals, in order to teach us what the industry is like and what is expected of performers after college.
