Louis Durward

- Acrobatics Teacher

I am a level 2 women’s artistic coach working full time at Severn Gymnastics and Trampoline Club based in Shrewsbury.

I love my job and the opportunity’s it presents. I enjoy coaching athletes of all ages / abilities and find there is nothing more fulfilling than watching them develop and hone their skills given correct support and guidance.

Regardless of where your abilities currently are, every journey begins with taking the first step and I believe we can all achieve great things working as a team.

Rebecca Taylor

- Musical Theatre/Singing Teacher

Rebecca trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts where she completed a BA Hons Degree in Acting and Musical Theatre.  Upon completion she gained representation and soon after her first professional job as the title role in the pantomime Cinderella for Paul Homan Associates. 

Following on from this success she was cast in Andrew Lloyd Webbers production of the Sound of Music at the London Palladium, where she got to perform alongside the winner of the BBC’s How do you Solve a Problem like Maria?,  as well as a number of other famous faces. After a year of understudying the role of Liesl, she was then offered the chance to take on the role fulltime, and did so to great recognition. 

Soon after the production closed Rebecca travelled to Belgium where she shot her first TV commercial for a Belgium mobile phone company, before deciding to take some time out to travel and pursue other interests, including teaching singing and musical theatre at a local theatre school.   In 2014 Rebecca graduated from Canterbury University with a postgraduate Certificate in Education and pursued a career as a primary school teacher for a couple of years.

However following the birth of her second child in January of this year, Rebecca has decided its time to share her passion and enthusiasm with pupils of singing and musical theatre once again.
