"As well as improving you as a dancer, the HND teaches you about the business side of things, like taking a show on tour, how to fund it and successfully promote it. I’ve appeared in some great dance shows at Sadler Wells and at the college’s Endeavour Theatre and we even performed in Hounslow town centre!"
