Thank you to each and every student who entered, you were all wonderful and we encourage you to try again next year. This wonderful opportunity gives all children the chance to join in because all that is required is a love of performing arts regardless of formal training. Participants simply had to send in a simple two-minute video highlighting what they can do from the Razzamataz curriculum. So that could be anything from a musical theatre song or dance, a drama piece, a pop song or street dance.

For Bethan's winning entry, she decided to perform 'I Dreamed a Dream' from 'Les Mis'.

Bethan said “I am absolutely delighted at winning the scholarship. Razzamataz Newcastle is a big part of my life and has given me the confidence to achieve what I thought was impossible. I am looking forward to further opportunities at Razzamataz in the future”

Now that Bethan is part of Razzamataz Newcastle she will have the opportunity to participate in many of the exciting events that will happen in 2017/2018. These include a whole host of performing opportunities, masterclasses with industry experts and the chance to audition for a leading talent agent as well as the chance to perform in London in the Indigo at the 02. To find out about availability at the school or to put your name on a waiting list, contact Principal Kayleigh Redford or Email: newcastle@razzamataz.co.uk or Tel: 07772577855 / 01914 065372.

In Other Tongues: residential short course ANNOUNCED

In Other Tongues: intimate geographies, ecologies of conversation

A residential short course produced by art.earth at Dartington Hall

June 10-14 2017

Taking the idea of geographical intimacy as its starting point, this five-day residential course offers a special opportunity to explore how we relate to the poetics of place. Its a chance to engage in practical, playful and serious enquiry into our experience of landscape and all things that inhabit it - from those that can be seen and heard, to those living in more in-between or imagined spaces.

Creative use of words form the core of the course along with image-making, voice and embodied exercises. We will work both indoors and outdoors as we deepen and attune more to ourselves and our experiences of place.

Developing our ability to listen will be key to this process, as will remaining open, always, to the unexpected. A willingness to participate is more important than previous experience: we welcome anyone interested in creating new work, or bringing new light to bear on work that's already in progress.There will be plenty of exercises to fire and inspire the imagination, as well as time to go exploring, to contemplate, to be still, to wonder.

Central to this short course is an approach of generous, vigilant enquiry, with ample time for reflection and sharing.There will be group workshops as well as opportunities for individual sessions with the tutors.

This course is linked to a creative summit: In Other Tongues: creating metaphysics, embodying language, June 7-9.
