Performing Arts Tutor & Camp Leader (Dance) - Enhanced DBS

Headshot of Will Klieve

People usually know me as Buddy the Elf!   Here at Take Part I am a Performing Arts Tutor, which essentially means I am up for anything and everything.  From choreographing show, to playing games encouraging inclusivity and collaboration.  I always give my all to ensure everyone has as much fun as possible, in a safe space where everyone can by themselves.  Musical Theatre, Singing, Dancing and Acting, and the teachers that have developed my skills, have always allowed me to have confidence in who I am and remind me that I love what I do, which is what I aim to be as a Tutor; supportive, encouraging and approachable. 

Starting off in dance training, I have experience in tap, ballet, jazz, commercial and contemporary styles.  This wide knowledge allows e to be able to show my students that dance doesn’t have one fixed shell, there is something different for everyone to enjoy.  Growing up I began to want something more than dance, which is why I stated attending Take Part myself in 2017.  From then I was in love with Musical Theatre, being part of many shows, 1:1 lessons, LAMDA grades and later being part of the Performance Preparation Programme.  I am currently attending Pendleton School of Theatre (2nd year), where I am completing a B-Tech in Musical Theatre.  This intense programme allows me to constantly improve and learn on my skills, as well as having an up-to-date knowledge of this amazing industry.   Next year I hope to move to London for drama school.  

I always strive to blend my knowledge of musical theatre, with an emphasis on teamwork as well as individuality within my lessons and always love to ‘take part’ in all the activities myself, as I strongly believe that I always have as much to learn from my students. 

For me, Take Part doesn’t feel like work, it’s a family.  The very community that I teach alongside now, are the very teachers that had and continue to have a massive influence on me as I was going through high school and now, I have the privilege to do what they did for me.
