“I’ve learned a great deal during my studies at LSFC, particularly about different acting styles and techniques and how to prepare for auditions. Thanks to my training at LSFC, I feel ready to take that next exciting step.”


Megan Landi, Dance

Now studying: BA (Hons) Professional Dance & Musical Theatre, Bird College

“During my studies at LSFC, I’ve been able to take control of my learning, and develop my leadership skills and my independence. In addition to dance shows, I’ve worked on amazing productions such as Rent, which saw students from all courses working together. One of the best things about LSFC is that it’s a close community with really supportive teachers.”


Rosita Da Silva Teixeira, Music

Now studying: BMus (Hons) in Popular Music, Royal Northern College of Music

“I’ve learned so much during my time at LSFC, including music theory and music technology, and about the music industry, to develop my skills as an all-round musician. I’ve loved working on the end of year musical theatre shows, when everyone contributes their skill towards putting on a big production. I’ve really enjoyed LSFC and would recommend it to anyone."


Harry South, Technical Theatre & Design

Now studying: BA (Hons) Theatre & Performance Technology, LIPA

“I knew I wanted to work backstage but wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. When I found out about the Technical Theatre & Design course at LSFC, it appealed to me because it gave me a chance to try lots of different things before finding what suited me best. I’ve found the Technical Theatre & Design course to be really well-run, with incredibly helpful tutors – LSFC is a great environment to study in.”
