John William Watson - BBC Young Dancer 2017 Finalist

Two CAPA College students have achieved national success in prestigious major national dance events this week. John-William Watson gained a place in the Grand Final of BBC Young Dancer which was shown live on BBC2 on Saturday 22nd April. Viewers of the competition saw John-William performing in the Contemporary Dance category heat of the BBC television programme successfully gaining a wild card place in the Grand Final where he competed against 4 other young dancers.  John-William received high acclaim for both his exceptional dancing and exquisite choreography from the panel of top dance industry experts including renowned choreographers Jasmin Vardimon, Katie Prince, Kenneth Tharp, Matthew Bourne and Darcey Bussell. John-William studied Dance and Performing Arts full time at CAPA College graduating this Summer with 4 A* grades in his Alevels as well as successfully gaining a place at the internationally renowned Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp, Belgium where he is now living and studying.

"We are incredibly proud of CAPA College students John-William and Beth who are achieving such amazing success at the very highest level in Dance. Both are wonderful, creative, intelligent, skilful and hardworking students who really make the most of their full time specialist Arts training and education at CAPA College."
