It is with immense pride that we would like to congratulate Y13 student George Ireland on successfully auditioning and securing his first professional dance performance contract with Remarc International in Greece. George has been part of the Pattison College dance family for a very long time, culminating in him joining our IDTA Level 4 Diploma course. He is successfully graduating from Pattison College not only with his dance teaching diploma, but also his Advanced Level performance exams with Distinctions across the board. It has been a pleasure watching this talented and enthusiastic young boy grow into the caring young man he is today. During his time at Pattison College, George has been nominated for an IDTA Theatre Dance Award in Modern-Jazz, performed at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the West End, as well as the Belgrade and Albany Theatres in Coventry. He has successfully represented Pattison College at many dance & drama festivals and has performed with professional performance groups such as the ‘Bohemian’ and ‘Phoenix Dance’ companies. He starts his contract in May and we wish him every success for the future.
