A TALENTED young dancer has his sights set on living the dream this summer.
Twinkle-toed Zac Crowe has been offered a place with the renowned Youth Musical Theatre Company of England – the launch pad of the likes of Emma Watson.
However, the teen needs to raise the vital cash to fund a summer at Aberdeen University producing and starring in a production called Maelstrom.
On top of that Zac, an accomplished choreographer, has been offered a part in a top West End production.
The 14-year-old said it is dream come true for him and he is trying to raise as much money as he can.
He has set up a crowdfunding appeal but is hoping to find a sponsor so he can fulfil his dreams.
Zac said: “Also this summer I am participating in a production in the West End of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This means that I will be performing on one of the most famous West End stages, which is home to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s, Phantom of the Opera.
“I am thoroughly excited and I cannot wait.
“I understand the importance of these opportunities and the cost they come at, so as a young adult now I would like to help myself get there.
“With this in mind, I am contacting local businesses, that may have an interest in supporting me as well as doing fundraising events at school and hopefully I will have some support off my dance companies.”
The Kirkham Grammar pupil, whose sister Brioni is an acclaimed musician, is renowned for his drama productions near his Elswick home, where he has produced panto.
At the age of six he was offered a place with the Royal Ballet, where he performed and worked in Manchester and London until he was 11. Since then he has trained with the Centre of Advanced Training and Dance.
He also spent two years training with the Hammond as well as performing with the English Youth Ballet on several occasions, recently starring in Giselle at Preston’s Charter Theatre.
