Personal Statement

Isabelle began attending Stagecoach Performing Arts when she was four years old. Described by the Stagecoach Principal as a "triple threat," Isabelle has a passion for acting, dancing and singing, and is keen to pursue a career in the creative arts. Isabelle regularly choreographs her own dance routines and exhibits a natural instinct for dance, claiming to "feel the music." Isabelle has also demonstrated ability in acting, which she has explored through the production of short films, two of which have been accepted into International Film Festivals. In 2021, Isabelle took a lead role in a low-budget independent feature film, Optics. Isabelle's singing has continued to blossom alongside her other skills, and she took part in 10 performances in the choir for the national touring production of 'Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' at two theatres in 2019.
