Jane English biography
I trained in Performing Arts at Birmingham Theatre School, and then went on to study Contemporary Theatre with Community Practices at Dartington College of Arts.
I have been involved in delivering mac’s drama courses for children and young people since it re-opened in 2010. I have also worked on a number of other youth theatre projects in the West Midlands, including BE Festival’s BE Next programme.
To compliment my teaching I also undertake regular work as a performer, credits include work with Living Structures, Outspoken, Verity Standen and Nic Green.
mac is a very supportive environment and a great resource. It’s really wonderful to be able to put on children’s and young people’s shows in a real theatre space and have the support of other professionals during the production. The learning programme is very flexible so I have been able to explore my interests within theatre and incorporate it as part of the course. I have learnt loads from experimenting with my approach, but I usually learn the most from my participants!
