Past Pupils

At Newcastle Dance Centre our pupils receive the best training possible to prepare them for careers in the entertainment and dance industry.  Dance, Drama, Singing and Voice Coaching are all fundamental parts of a well rounded training. 

Many of our past pupils have their own dance schools and some have gone on to exciting projects on stage shows, cruise ships, dance companies and a few have high profile jobs in TV, Theatre and the music industry.
