Hi, my name is Elsa and I am a keen reader.  I particularly love magical and mystery books.  I love to act, sing and dance and have competed at Speech and Drama festivals all over the province winning lots of silverware including most dramatic performance of the festival and have won most versatile performer three years running! I love listening to music, especially Musical Theatre and Disney.  My favourite Musical Theatre performances are CATS and Hamilton, King George III is hilarious!  I attend weekly acting and dance classes.  My favourite dance class is tap.  I love making rhythm with my feet.  My hobbies include playing the violin and supporting Belfast Giants Ice Hockey  team.  I really like to write my own scripts and monologues and when I am older, would love to write, direct and produce my own show on stage or screen.  I love performing and have good focus and direction.  I look forward to making the most of opportunities which arise through Rising Talent.
