FROM RARE TO BROADWAY
Megan Bowers a 17 year old dancer from Rare is the first student to be awarded a 6 month scholarship to train at the prestigious Broadway Dance Centre in New York. Megan, recognised for her hard work and commitment was offered the chance to continue her training in the big apple through a substantial donation made by Liverpool Businessman Mark Furness. Along with that 3 lucky ex Rare students Renae Hughes, Rikie Kelly and Fortune Pastor were awarded the first graduate scholarships; Renae and Fortune choosing LA as a destination and Rikie choosing New York. This is in recognition of outstanding performance as students and continuing to be ambassadors for the school.
The directors of Rare Studio Liverpool said ‘It is extremely important to us that we invest as much as possible into our student’s professional lives. Hard work at Rare is rewarded and we are so pleased to be able to offer a student/graduate scholarship programme which ensures they are getting the best possible start in their professional lives. We put progression before profit and always will’ Fortune recently graduated from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts after studying at Rare for three years. Renae is about to go into her second year at LIPA and already has an impressive CV where commercial dance work in concerned. Rikies commitment to Rare was outstanding often first in the building and last out. Again, clocking up and impressive CV and securing a place in Mathew Bournes ‘Lord of the Flies’ whilst still in training.
