Janice Sutton's show could grace any West End Stage
Gary Lloyd came to see “Gotta Sing Gotta Dance“ at the Embassy Theatre Skegness, Gary is a West End Director and Choreographer shows include Thriller Live and world tour, Hair and many major musical productions. Gary first started with us, this is what he had to say about our show.
“I became a part of the Janice Sutton theatre school in 1986 after hounding Janice to let me join, one of the best dance schools in the North East, I used to travel from Grimsby as this was the only teacher I wanted to learn from.”
In my time at Janice's as well as taking all the classes in technique, I performed in numerous shows, thrown in at the deep end but learning from this wonderfully professional environment Janice has created.
We were immersed in a variety of styles and all age groups worked wonderfully and happily together enabling the young performers to really learn from above. Each of these shows were "jam-packed" with amazing costumes, production and choreography, this school certainly gives students These opportunities and valuable stage experiences should they want to go further into the profession and I have a lot to thank Janice for. Being a part of them reminds me of where I came from and where I started to learn my craft, which has made me the determined driven guy that I still am today, I thank Janice for all she has done for me and consider myself blessed that I am still able to achieve my goals with integrity and spirit she instilled all that time ago She directs with a firm hand and a kind heart, teaching professionalism and integrity whilst always having fun with her dedicated teachers.
I am now a West End director and choreographer as well as a proud patron of the school, her inspiration will always be with me and it is an honour to come back to Skegness when I can to see these shows, which are as magical now as they were back then. Janice is more than just a dance teacher, she is a pioneer, an inspiration to young performers ...and a friend.”
