I am excited about being able to support the school as we look towards delivering on a 5 year plan for growth and development,” Gavin says. He continues: “As we acquire an extension of our current premises and look towards a rebrand from September, a new chapter dawns for the school - one which promises both continued exceptional outcomes for students and an even larger reach within our industry.”
Kelly Richardson, Chair of the Board of Directors said: “We are thrilled to have appointed Gavin as Director of Business Operations. His wealth of experience across the industry in several capacities and his work with many high-profile national dance organisations ensure a rich offering to the school’s mission.
