Charlie Randall was an inspiring, hardworking member of the Roynon family. After transferring to Roynon Swanmore in 2015 and swiftly taking lead parts in productions such as Mary Poppins, she has studied at London Studio Centre. She first began dancing at the age of 3, and from her first show, she knew she had the passion. She is aiming to have a professional career in musical theatre productions and then return to teaching students.
Katie started dancing with Roynon aged 5. Thanks to her strong work ethic, passion for dance and guidance from Miss Sarah, Miss Jess, Miss Dawn and other Roynon teachers along the way, she achieved her grade in advanced 1 tap and intermediate ballet. She is a fluid, creative dancer with strong links to contemporary styles, so moving to study at Laban became the next logical step in Katie’s dance journey. She has recently graduated and currently lives in Copenhagen training at Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School, and hopes to move back to London once completed and work as a freelance dance artist.
Jade Burdon was with Roynon for 5 years starting at the age of 13 Jade had received a wide range of training at the Swanmore-based school, including musical theatre and commercial. This then had a direct influence in her decision to continuing training via a 3 year degree course in dance and musical theatre at Performers College, London.
Catherine Gunter had been with Roynon for over 4 years, predominantly studying tap, modern, contemporary and ballet. After putting a portfolio together with the support from the school as well as obtaining audition advice, she has gone onto study at the renowned Laban (London). Her dance loves are now ballet, contemporary and commercial and she aspires to have a career in the dance industry.
