We are so proud of Charlie Freeman who has got herself a place on the 3 year Performing Arts course at Wilkes Academy based in Swindon starting this September.

Over 600 students have auditioned over the year with only approximately 60 places available. Charlie did an intense day of classes taking Ballet, Commerical, Jazz, Musical Theatre and Street.

Wilkes Academy was set up by Jonathon Wilkes and his wife Nikki Wilkes and is a sought after place to get top quality training.

All the teachers at Wilkes are either still dancing within the industry or have been in the industry for many years, so all the students are getting up to the minute training.

Wilkes Academy have many connections with Robbie Williams, Ant and Dec, Arlene Philips, Dancers Inc, Mike Dixon and Louise Dearman all as patrons to the Academy.

We wish Charlie every success in her future and so proud that she will be representing Devon, proving that you don’t have to train in big cities to be successful.
