Meet the new RSPA student team

Riverside School of Performing Arts (RSPA) started another year last Monday with a team of 8 dynamic, well travelled students from England, Scotland, Ireland and Malaysia! Becky, Martha, Vicki, Jo, Esther, Elisa, Nick and Sandra; ages range from 17 to 27, but they’ve all the same passion to learn more about how God can use their energy and creative, performing gifts for Him.

This first week they have been finding their way around Riverside House and meeting the staff, limbering up in the dance class and singing together in the vocal classes. During this week, the RSPA staff and students stayed overnight in the country to have a time of team building and getting to know each other better. We are so excited about what God has in store for this team and we’re delighted to have the support of Riversiders to host and mentor the students.

We really feel that God has brought them together and we’ve lots of projects lined up for the team to take part in. They will be performing in local school assemblies, some street theatre in Kings Heath, helping in “Re:act” drama group and, in this term, the Story Theatre production.  Please look out for them, they are very friendly and give them a warm welcome!
