Spotlight on Jack George
- Published Date: October 16, 2018
He is our dance teacher extraordinaire, who has also been known to turn his hand to teaching drama and the performing arts. This month we put the spotlight on Jigsaw teacher Jack George to find out a bit more about the man who has choreographed shows, presentations and inspired so many of our students.
Tell us a bit about yourself, where are you from and if you went to drama school where did you train?
I’m Jack, and I discovered my love for performing at 10 years old! Originally, I’m from Leicestershire and moved to London to train in Musical Theatre at Bird College.
As a teacher where do you currently teach?
What are you working on this term?
Both of my schools are on presentation this term. I’m hoping my students will produce a great performance with a lot of energy and ultimately have a lot of fun.
As an actor/performer what has been your most interesting job so far?
A performing highlight for me was working with Arlene Phillips and tap dancing on The One Show. But I love teaching. Seeing pupils develop their confidence, ability and performance is so rewarding.
What advice would give to a young person who have never been involved in the performing arts?
Performing Arts is a great outlet for self-expression and helps develop confidence, concentration, motivation and teamwork! It’s also a great opportunity to make friends and have a lot of fun.
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!
