Dancer Ellis Leaps into LIPA

Ellis Keilaus, a dance student at Clarendon Sixth Form College, has been offered a place at LIPA (The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts). 

Ellis, a former Werneth School pupil, has been offered a place at LIPA to study a foundation certificate in dance.  

LIPA, is a well known institute for its performing arts courses, from dance and acting, to music technology and management.  

Due to study from September 2020, the foundation certificate will help Ellis continue his dance studies at a higher level, undertaking training in a variety of dance styles, whilst developing more skills for future training or a professional career.  

Ellis said: “I am beyond thrilled to be accepted into the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts to study dance. It has been my dream to be a performer but I would not be where I am without the outstanding support of my tutors. My dance teacher Michelle Forrest has not only taught me to be a better performer but has gone above and beyond to help me with any issue I had and I want to thank every one of them.” 

Michelle Forrest, performing arts teacher at Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “I am delighted that Ellis has gained a place at LIPA to pursue his passion for dance. He has a very exciting time ahead of him studying at such a prestigious setting. He has been a pleasure to teach and I have no doubts that he will have a successful career ahead of him.”
