A RISING star of the stage returned to his home county to pass on advice and skills.
Students on the BTEC performing arts diploma at East Riding College were treated to a practical session from David Tute, at Collette Tyler’s School of Dance in Bridlington.
Mr Tute, 23 and originally from Hull, has recently clinched the leading role in a London stage play of the children’s classic tale, Tom’s Midnight Garden.
The workshop comes ahead of a taster session to be held at the dance studios in Springfield Avenue, Bridlington, today from 1pm to 3pm for prospective students.
Emma Hoskison, 21, from Bridlington said: “I felt exhausted but energised after the workshop. It really was beneficial.”
Charlie Sinclair, 16, from Hunmanby said: “It was a pleasure to have been taught by someone who is already a professional actor at such a young age.”
Daniel Beardsmore, 16, from Bridlington said: “It’s nice to know we are learning a range of skills at such a young age to be prepared for the experiences ahead.”
Tutor Kat Downing said: “Having guest lecturers is very important for students.
“David is working in the industry now and can help the students to understand the reality of life as a performer.
“Students on the course are learning the three disciplines of acting, singing and dancing from tutors who have all worked professionally, allowing them to gain insight into the industry and putting their learning into practice through planned performances at the Spotlight Theatre in Bridlington.”
