Laura has trained extensively in singing, dancing and acting for 20 years. She is a member of the National Youth Theatre and graduated from Arts Educational, London in 2008 with a BA (Hons) degree in Acting; working professionally since then in a variety of performance fields.
Now, having trained and worked professionally, she is sharing her experience and passion with our local young performers.
Laura has over 9 years experience teaching performing arts at a number of highly regarded theatre schools, directing drama festivals and coaching students for LAMDA exams. She began running performing arts academies in the school holidays in 2009 and formed ‘MOMENTUM’ Street Dance Crew in 2011.
"I believe children can benefit hugely from participating in performing arts. Beyond gaining singing, dancing and acting skills, performing can build confidence, self-esteem, social skills, listening and responding, public speaking, teamwork and initiative. I am hugely excited to be contributing to my fantastic local performing arts communities, which I so enjoy being a part of.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to the collective and to, together, creating some fantastic work!”
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.
GreenRoomCollective creations are a collaboration between young performers and experienced professionals, working together to build exciting, imaginative work that everyone involved can take ownership of and immense pride in.
It is important to me that every student, as well as building excellent performance skills, has opportunity to develop and contribute their own ideas, exploring their individual performance style, in any discipline, and stamping their identity on their performances. This involvement in their work, and range of styles and approaches explored, makes for engaging workshops, rounded performers and dynamic performances.
Encouraging the students to share ideas and personality, to take responsibility for aspects of their learning and contribute to the content of their workshops, delivers work that is unique to a group of students, unending performance possibilities and a rewarding collective achievement.
