Throughout professional MT training, we have to push ourselves to be the best that we can be in all disciplines. Yet when you're out there in the industry, it's best to play to your strengths! Narrowing down your casting type will not only ensure you become authentic and truthful, but will mean
you'll be called in for the auditions you are PERFECT for.
You own a business after all and by getting to grips with your 'brand', you can get people to invest into it.
If the auditions aren't coming in, if you're graduating from college this year, if you're
desperate to sign with a new agent, then you need to do EVERYTHING in your power to
ensure your business is in order.
You are the CEO of your company. What product are you selling? And how are you selling it?

SALLY JAYNE HIND - PERFORMER
Sally first came into my studio as a classically
trained ballet dancer, wanting to build confidence in her singing, and therefore in her auditions too.
Training will always be taken into consideration, and with Sally's 3 years at Northern Ballet School, it was imperative we showed that she is SO much more than ballet alone.
A singing reel is always a necessity on your Spotlight, especially if the goal is to work in musical theatre. The plan is to have this recorded as soon as possible.
However, with fresh headshot showing her casting and a new dance reel across a multitude of styles, Sally was able to secure representation in the industry. She is now signed with Katie at You Management, is auditioning regularly and has most recently finished a contract at the London Palladium.
Sally Jayne Hind - Dance Reel 2020
"Natalie’s help with my showreel has been invaluable in my journey to getting an agent, which lead to securing my first job in the West End. We had a look at my previous showreel and Natalie was able to point out the best bits, as well as highlight where I could make improvements. Utilising these notes, I later returned, having filmed additional content and together we added the final touches. Shortly after, I used my final showreel to successfully apply for an agent and I am currently professionally represented. I am super proud of my showreel and I feel, with Natalies help, I have managed to show off my abilities in an interesting and captivating way."
Natalie helped me with my Spotlight CV, managed to sort my first voice reel and dance reel and it sure did pay off, I am now signed by the amazing Oxford Adams Associates in London... I could not recommend her highly enough...
