Coronation Street actress Alexandra Mardell – Emma Brooker in the long-running soap – will be attending an open day at a performing arts school in Bramley this weekend.
LB Academy is a performing arts school and casting agency which provides weekly classes across acting, dancing and signing for youngsters aged two to 19. An in-house casting agency also offers students the opportunity to get involved in industry castings.
The academy performs regular shows throughout the year and students learn valuable life skills while having fun and making new friends.
Founder Craig Womersley said he was looking forward to Sunday’s open day and added:
“Alexandra will be joining us to keep a watchful eye on the peers throughout the open day, as she will be choosing two people to receive a one-year 50% scholarship to train with us here at LB Academy.
“We understand the impact that the pandemic has had on young people and this is why we think it is more important than ever before to make people aware of what we offer in the community.
“Whether it just be a hobby for one child or a push towards a career for another, we cater for all abilities and love to work with new people along the way.”
Class prices range from £6-£9 per week and take place Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
The open day this Sunday (13 February 2022) will be held at the studio next door to Monster Kidz in Broad Lane, Bramley. Full details in the poster:
