Gemma Kate Gould
Founder and Director
BA(Hons) Musical Theatre
Gemma won a scholarship to London's famous stage school, Sylvia Young Theatre School, when she was 11 and she's been singing, dancing and acting since then.
Not only that, but she hails from Wales, so you could say (and she often does) that she was born with music and song in her blood. Gemma studied her craft for a BA Hons in Musical Theatre at the prestigious Guildford School of Acting and has performed professionally on stage, TV, radio and commercials.
Now she wants to share all that experience with her own classes of hidden gems, helping them shine and build their confidence through dance, drama and having a bloomin' great sing-song.
Gemma now also works as an Agent for BTM - Boss Talent Management, as well as occasionally treading the boards herself whenever she gets the chance.
Her favourite Musicals are Les Miserables, Wicked, Legally Blonde and all Rogers and Hammerstein classics!
