"I think it’s really perfect for actors. If you miss a day due to a show or audition, you can just do the lesson later. InterHigh gives you all the tools to manage your learning yourself, so if you have enough self-motivation, then I would definitely recommend it."
Daniel Wilmot | Musical Actor
It is very hard to fit both in, especially when school is so intense, which it can be. I know school does need to be the priority, but at the same time I wasn’t prepared to give up on what I love to do and hope to do as a career. So, when we heard about InterHigh, I thought it was the perfect way to combine school and my passion, because there are less hours, so I’m not constantly late to rehearsals, I don’t waste time on travelling and I can do my lessons anywhere! Interhigh are also more accepting of your other important commitments and they are happy to work around you.
I went on holiday to Ibiza and I sat by the pool doing my lesson to make sure I was still learning, but I was able to go on holiday in term time.
I think it’s really perfect for actors. It helps with the time aspect, because the school day is shorter and there is no travel, so you have more time to get to rehearsals, shows etc. It also allows you to do your lesson anywhere and whenever you are free, as all lessons are recorded. If you miss a day due to a show or audition, you can just do the lesson later. InterHigh gives you all the tools to manage your learning yourself, so if you have enough self-motivation, then I would definitely recommend it.
My advice would be to just get out there and get into your local theatre school and just keep working your way up. You can’t expect to just go straight to the top and work in the West End, you need to work your way up and with practice, you will get where you want to be.
