Second Draft - Task 1a: Professional Profile

After working through some of the Module Tasks I have re-written my Professional Profile a little; refined it and made it more appropriate to the course:

"My name is Dani; I am a professionally trained Actress, Dancer and Singer having graduated with Distinction from Liverpool Theatre School and College. During my time training I also gained Distinctions in the three higher level LAMDA Acting examinations and was nominated for an IDTA Scholarship Award in Ballet.

Since graduating I have specialised in Variety, Cabaret and Burlesque performance. I have had the privilege of  seeing a small, niche scene burgeon into a thriving industry which has allowed me to forge a career and travel across the world. Some of my favourite performances include: joining the cast of the world-famous "Simon Drake's House of Magic", touring with the award winning shows "The Burlesque Show", "Circus Burlesque" and "Another F**king Variety Show", and being a Feature Soloist in the original cast of "Burlesque On Ice" for which I also worked as Assistant Creative Director.

As part of my ongoing performer development I have also learned Basic Fire Performance, Figure Skating and Aerial Hoop! I enjoy challenging myself and learning new skills; next I want to learn some form of Martial Art and Tightrope Walking! I imagine things like this will come in handy one day!

I am now studying for a BA(Hons) Degree in Performance Practise with Middlesex University: as I am at a stage of my life where I am searching for the next step in my arts career. I would love to work in a Creative Direction role that would allow me to build on my experience and knowledge of the performance industry and I believe this course will help me achieve my goals!"

Not too much different: just streamlined slightly with a little more information where it might have been needed.
