Alumni

We are so delighted and proud of all our past pupils of The Dance Consortium, some of whom went on to train at many of the UK's finest musical theatre schools, before entering the professional world.

 

Who would have thought that by starting out in our humble dance school in Tunbridge Wells, they would reach such heady heights. Here we would just like to share with you a few of their successes & the shows in which they've appeared.
