6 months with Springs Dance Company

By Johanna Osborn, Company and Elevate Administrator

Our new Administrator, Johanna, talks about her role and highlights of her time in the staff team so far.

I’d known about Springs Dance Company for a number of years before I applied for the job. I had come along to one of their Adult Open Workshops and attended their Summer Course in 2014, just after graduating from university. The dancers and teachers I’d met on those occasions were so talented and welcoming, and made me realise that dance and my Christian faith didn’t need to be kept in separate boxes.

How I found myself on a marvellous adventure

By Linn Kassner, Elevate Dance Company member 2017

Why I chose to do Elevate

By Georgina Smith, Elevate Dance Company member 2017

As soon as I started at sixth form, they began fast-tracking us towards university. What career do you want? What are you going to study? Where are you going to study? What steps are you taking now to make sure you get in? I’d only just managed to narrow it down to 4 subjects, and already they were asking me to pick one of them for what seemed like the rest of my life. I wasn’t ready...
