Drama school at the grand old age of 39....

    Hi all

    I need advice!

    Back in 2004, I graduated from a dance and drama centre after completing the 3 year Trinity (accredited and spotlight/Equity worthy) Musical Theatre course.

    Now after all these years, I really want to go back and train again. Now where, and doing what? (I am currently in a very good profession doing something completely different)

    Musical theatre again at 39 probably 40 by the time I get in (if I get in), or do I go down the acting route, far more wrinkle friendly? I still dance, albeit not Chicago standard by any means, but I honestly don't think the acting route will totally fulfil me, although its more in line with my age. Don't get me wrong I love acting, but I also love singing and dancing along with it.

    Sorry for the ramble, would love any advice you can give me!

    Kaitee

    Never too old - I did a more formal course years ago but have gained so much from shorter and more specific courses, particularly those that work on artistry as a whole. Now is a great time to dip in - there are quite a few calls being put out for MT artists on social media. CDs seem to be up for watching more! Good luck - follow your heart xx
