Harrison Dances Out from the Crowd

Harrison, from Liverpool, will be taking the next step in his extra-ordinary journey with a little help from The Realising Dreams Foundation.

Harrison – just 14 years old – has a long list of impressive credits to his name covering stage, screen and the world of dance.  He appeared in Matilda the Musical on the West End, in TV series Peaky Blinders, received movie acclaim in Short Film “Saturday” and holds several World and English dance titles.  And these are only a few of his achievements.

Most recently Harrison beat off tough competition to win CBBC’s Taking The Next Step 2017 dance competition giving him the chance to appear in the upcoming series of the Canadian TV Series The Next Step. See him dance in is semi-final performance on CBBC’s Taking the Next Step here

But despite all of these experiences and outstanding talent, financial difficulties still limit his chances of building a career performing.

Harrison’s dream is to be a successful tripe threat artist in television, film and stage. To help enable this, he must secure a BTEC Diploma in performing arts so that he can go on to further his training on a three year performing arts course.

Harrison applied to The Realising Dreams Foundation to help meet the costs of this one-year BTEC course at Jelli Studios in Liverpool and a springboard to his future.

It’s clear that to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of performing arts, you must be exceptional, determined and stand out from the crowd. From his achievements, titles, roles and references, it is clear to us that Harrison has what it takes to go all the way to a long lasting career.

The Realising Dreams Foundation is delighted to play a part in Harrison’s journey by contributing to his course costs next year while he studies at Jelli Studios.  We can’t wait to see what comes next for Harrison.
