artsdepot will house London Studio Centre’s foundation, first and second year students temporarily while negotiations for the fit out of its proposed new premises in West London are completed, which will provide it with purpose built studios and state of the art facilities.

London Studio Centre has moved from its York Way studios after 26 years due to the Kings Cross area redevelopment but looks forward to creating a new home in Acton with brand new studios in the near future.

Director, London Studio Centre

Graduate performing on Eurovision 2012

International Legend Engelbert Humperdinck will be accompanied by Shem Jacobs (LSC Graduate) dancing on stage for the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan, tomorrow.  Shem graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in 2009.

Arlene Phillips is the Creative Director and Choreographer for the entry. The Official Eurovision website talks about the choreography:

The performance has a male and female ballet classical dancer who move around the stage elegantly during the performance. There is a guitarist sat on a stool behind Engelbert. The dancing adds to the atmosphere of the performance.

We’d like to wish Shem and Bethany-Rose the best of luck with the performance. The Eurovision final will be shown on BBC1 Saturday 26th May from 8pm, with the UK Entry being performed first.

Another successful Boys' Day

The free annual Boys’ Day has always been an interesting and diverse day; this year did not disappoint. Held last month a number of individuals and school groups visited London Studio Centre on a Saturday to take part in a range of classes and workshops including contemporary, jazz, ballet and street. The boys were lucky enough to be taught by existing LSC staff Buddy Watkins, Karl Stevens, Cris Penfold and Miha Matevzic. The day was rounded off by a sharing of work which showed the diversity and commitment of the day.

For information about next year’s Boys' Day, please check back here.
