Dreams do Come True!

Joel Idemudia (now Ekperigin) has hit the big time after years of studying Dance at Oasis Academy Hadley and going on to join Wilkes Academy!

Former student Joel was successful in an audition to become a professional and full time Dancer in London’s West End production of ‘Thriller Live’.  Joel said ‘I am absolutely loving being a professional dancer, it is hard work but well worth it.  I would like to thank Oasis Academy Hadley, especially Mrs Waterton, as well as the staff at Wilkes Academy who gave me the skills and determination I needed to be successful’. 

Although Joel has a very busy schedule he has offered to teach some workshops at Oasis Academy Hadley to give something back after all the help and support he received here.  Mrs Waterton went to see Joel perform over the half term and said ‘he was absolutely amazing, I’m so proud of him!”.  From all of us at Oasis Academy Hadely we would like to say, “Well done Joel!” We are so proud of you!
