My story

[p]Riding to get young people the right training for their passion in performing arts.[/p][p]My name is Mark, started as an HGV Mechanic, but always had a passion for music and dance. Then one day a fellow mechanic gave me an advert and said "you should do this". Little did I know that advert would set me off on a career playing leading rolls in stage musicals, travelling the world and getting paid to entertain people; it never felt like a job it felt like vocation.[/p][p] I met my wife Diana, dancing, and once we hung up our performing shoes, started ACS Dance Centre. We are now training the next generation of performers.[/p][p] Less is being spent on the performing arts even schools are dropping music and performing arts subjects. The health benefits alone should be worth investment, plus the wider feel good factor of the millions of people who go and watch performances. If we don't invest in this grass root necessity, there won't be the quality out there to go and watch. [/p][p] My charity is trying to help that. Most things that require a skill set need time and money. My teacher invested more than I paid for, she is very proud of my achievements especially continuing the training of the next generation performer. I thank her for an amazing life, due to the skills of performing arts[/p]
