Former North Kent College student Maria Mazzone returns to Miskin Dance
14th March 2017
Maria Mazzone; commercial dancer and ex NKC student, held a workshop for the Miskin dancers, giving them the experience of what is expected of them in their future career choice.
Maria trained at North Kent College when she was just 16 before moving onto Performers College. Since graduating from Performers she has worked consistently in the industry and has many credits to her name such as Jingle Bell Ball and Britain’s got Talent, but enjoys teaching as it enables her ‘to give back to others what I’ve learnt myself’.
Over the course of two days, the students were taught a routine, gradually adding more to the piece to develop their performing skills, whilst working on their retention of the choreography. By bringing in choreographers who are currently working in the industry that the students are aiming to gain a career in, it ensures that they are up to date with the different styles of dance that are required in auditions for both higher education or professional jobs.
The students took full advantage of the sessions, asking questions and advice to perfect the routine. Maria commented “It was great to have the opportunity to come back where it all started for me. A place that made my dreams a reality! The students are lucky to have such exceptional training preparing them for some of the top colleges in the UK”.
