An impressive level of talent in performing arts has been showcased at the recent DLD College London’s annual talent show

A diverse mix of musicians, singers and dancers delighted the audience at the DLD Star Search at the Westminster Bridge college. Following each of the 14 performances, the acts were presented to a panel of judges for comment, and then sent to the green room to be interviewed live on Instagram by one of the college’s BTEC media students Emily Keogh.

The overall winner was BTEC creative media, music and French student Cairo Folkes, 18, who wowed the audience with his phenomenal piano performance and jazz improvisation.

The college offers students the chance to study a wide range and flexible combination of A-levels, GCSEs, international foundation courses and BTEC courses.

As part of the Alpha Plus Group, the college aims to maintain a gold standard of educational quality.

Classes are small, enabling students and teachers to focus upon the most effective ways of learning. See: www.dldcollege.co.uk
