Nathan White left the former Queen’s School in 2007 where he gained an A* in GCSE Dance.

He went on to achieve BTec qualifications in Dance and Musical Theatre and a BA Hons in Dance (Performing Arts) from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.

After working as a dance captain at a French holiday park, Mr White returned to Wisbech where he performed in local shows and volunteered at the academy helping with dance lessons.

He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me to do something I love every day which is teaching and doing dance and seeing the same spark that I had in some of the students.”

Lisa Tarsitano, head of expressive arts, who taught Mr White when he was a student at the school, said: “It is great to see a talented past pupil returning to the school to share his passion for dance with the students and inspire them to follow their dreams.”
