Jordan is following dream to dance

A former Gateshead College student has secured his place in a dance group which tours around the world.

Jordan Robson, 22, studied Level 3 Dance at Gateshead College and was accepted onto the CAT programme by Dance City, he has now secured his dream dancing job with the BalletBoyz.

He followed his passion for dance having gained GCSE in the subject as an A* student at Whitley Bay High School before going to Gateshead College to gain his diploma in dance.

In 2013 he was accepted to study at the prestigious Rambert School of Ballet in London and gained a 2.1 in his degree last year. It was during his last year at Rambert that Jordan was invited to join the BalletBoyz dance company as an apprentice and has now been accepted to join the company.

Jordan, from Tynemouth, said: “I now dance professionally with them and am living my dream.

“It has been a full on year since joining the company, but I love every minute and have been fortunate to have travelled to many cities of the world. It’s been a long journey from studying at Gateshead College to finding myself performing in Newcastle at the Northern Stage in April.”
