help me get to BYMT

by Jess Owen in Newbury, England, United Kingdom


I’m Jessica Hilton - Owen and I’m currently 15 years old, i`ve been accepted into BYMT (British Youth Music Theatre) in the show Dance Connection 5

To be able to take this amazing chance, I need to raise £1600 and I need your help to get me there.

I went along to audition at Bristol, where so many people audition, I was delighted to see and email telling me I was successful, I learnt a monologue, a song off their provided list and learnt a dance that day. I loved the audition day as they they were challenging and definitely wore me out after, everyone there was so nice and I made a couple of friends on the way as well which made the audition process that bit sweeter, I came out of both auditions with a very positive buzz. About a 2 weeks later I received the email I had been wishing and praying for, telling me I was in Dance Connection , I was absolutely ecstatic.

The rehearsals take place during the summer and is to be performed in the Rhoda McGaw theatre in Woking

I absolutely love performing, it’s my passion, I’ve at it since the age of 6 and since then my passion and skills has only grown, I’ve dedicated practically my whole life to the business and I’m sure this is the career I would like to pursue.  My week consists of grade 4 BBO ballet on a Monday, musical theatre LAMDA on a Wednesday, theatre group rehearsals on a Wednesday, Friday and all day Sunday, technique classes on a Thursday and Italia Conti Saturday school from 9 till 6, in which I do group singing, street dance, private singing, musical theatre, jazz, grade 3 tap, grade 5 modern and grade 6 ballet RAD. I work hard everyday to try and perfect my skill and knowledge within the business and my dream is to someday be performing as a living and BYMT is a massive step towards this goal.

I`ll try do as much fund raising as a I can, staring with 15,000 steps a day.

I`ll keep people updated on stuff I do!

Thank you,

Jess x
