Being fortunate enough to receive a Scholarship at Point Break Drama in 2013  has been a very beneficial experience for me. I have learn’t a lot about acting in general and some specific techniques, to improve and perform at the very best possible. I have been immersed in many different opportunities ranging from Advanced classes at the school, with new friends, to being part of an amazing production of Romeo and Juliet. I am very thankful for the experience to grow as an actor and many thanks must go to Paul Winchester and all of the great teachers at Point Break. Alex Graham 15yrs 14-16 Winner Scholarship 2013
