She says ...
‘The Boury Academy is the most genuine, hard working and experienced performing arts training school I have ever come across, not to mention TALENTED! Having taught at the school, I have seen students go from strength to strength not only in skill but in confidence and I am here for that! I am so honoured to become a Patron of The Boury Academy, the ethos is everything I stand for and they are truly making a difference to so many young people lives.’
Shalisha taught at our school before becoming so busy with filming and theatre work and we are DELIGHTED that she has agreed to stay connected to us by joining our existing Patron, Irvine Iqbal, in becoming a voice for our Academy and a support and role model for our young people
