West End star Layton Williams returned to the Academy following his last workshops with our students in 2015.

Layton played the lead role in Billy Elliot in the West End, Stephen in BBC3's 'Bad Education' and has starred in CBBCs 'Beautiful people' and 'School for Stars'. He is a member of Matthew Bourne's 'New Adventures' dance company and toured with 'Lord of the Flies' where he has been preparing novice dancers for professional performances nationwide.

Layton spent the afternoon with students in a series of dance workshops. Following the visit he emailed Miss Seaton and said:

‘ Thanks so much for another great workshop! Was nice to be back. You’ve quite clearly had an amazing effect on these students as that level of dance is unseen at most secondary schools that I visit. You should be super proud and I’m sure you are’.
