“I want to thank the teachers at NCD for setting me up for the career ahead of me. Moving to NCD was the best decision I every made, I learnt so much about myself and wouldn’t now be training at one of the best US schools without them! Everything I learnt at NCD I still use and I receive comments from my Artistic Director at how well I’ve been trained and it helps me so much in auditions. I am forever grateful to NCD for making me a versatile dancer” — Paige Finlay, 2017 graduate currently training in New York
