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.

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?

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...
