This half term, West Thames College Performing Arts students will be taking part in Assemble - an exciting project for dance and music makers aged 16-18 years.

Our students will be given the unique opportunity to work collaboratively with other young artists across music and dance industries and will take part in skills building workshops and rehearsals to learn all about what it takes to be a professional performer!


This unique collaboration will allow our talented media, music and dance students to focus on developing new performances for the public, bringing together their fantastic work in a showstopping one off performance.

Students will be working closely with inspirational artists such as choreographer and dance artist Becky Namgauds, and interdisciplinary artist Tyrone Isaac Stuart. Becky has created dance for theatres, outdoor festivals and film. Her show Like Honey was part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019, and her solo Exhibit F premiered at Dance Umbrella 2019, touring in early 2020. Tyrone uses jazz music, krump & contemporary dance to create audio-visual experiences. He is a Steve Reid Innovation Award 2019-2020 recipient, a 2020 Artist in Residence at Clarence Mews Space, and a 2021 East London Ideas Fund awardee.

The final performance will be showcased as part of the Dance Umbrella Festival 2021 at Bell Square in Hounslow (outdoor) and Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford (indoor).

Our previous Performing Arts students have gone on to star in shows such as EastEnders, Britain’s Got Talent and The Secret Life of Boys.
