Reading aloud: The Brit School
This is the text from the book you have to read aloud:
Do you like acting? Do you enjoy dancing? Are you good at DJ-ing or interested in writing? If you are, then maybe the Brit School is the place for you. And if you'd like to be involved in the performing arts but you prefer working behind the scenes, the Brit School is also the place for you.
The Brit School is different from most other schools. It's Britain's only free Performing Arts and Technology School for 14 to 19-year olds. Students at the Brit School study normal school subjects but they also learn about the performing arts, media, and arts and design.
The school opened in 1991 and has its own professional theatre, dance studios and TV and radio studios.
Most of the students at the Brit School want to start a career in the performing arts. Leona Lewis, Kate Nash, Katie Melua, Adele Luke Pritchard of The Kooks and Paul Godfrey of Morcheeba all went to the school and hoped to become famous one day. Today they're international stars.
The Brit School receives financial support from the Brit Awards, Britain's biggest music awards. Each year prizes are given to Britain's most talented musicians. Winners in recent years have included Arctic Monkeys, Paul McCartney, Mika and Adele, also a former student of the school.
In fact, former Brit School students have sold ten million albums in the UK. It's become the school for some of the biggest names in music, dance and drama.
