Danni and Kelly bring a real passion, dedication and discipline to their performing arts school, the Godiva Academy. These are the main ingredients to succeed in the very competitive world of stage and screen, and I wish everyone the very best with their futures in the performing arts.
Actor, Singer, Songwriter
I have been fortunate enough to work professionally with Danni and Kelly. They are such a positive role model and an asset to GAPA. I can say without question, they flourish when they demonstrate their artistic talents and lead others to achieve their best.
I have been performing around the world and had lead roles in London’s West End Musicals such as Miss Saigon and West Side Story. I am currently featured in the hit drama series 24. I have also performed in many other TV series and film.

"The Godiva Academy of Performing Arts is a splendid place for young people to improve their confidence, teamwork, interaction and fitness through the performing arts, Acting, Singing and Dance. I highly recommend it!"
Dear Kelly, Good luck for your show which we are sure will be a great success. We are delighted that our Millennium Girl Kelly has succeeded in training such talented students. This is evident with Matthew Pringle being offered a place at MPA starting in September. We hope to see more of your students in the future and would like to offer a taster day for all to visit the college.
Again have a marvellous evening.
With best wishes Jacki, Donald, Ikky and Sarah
Stella Mann College
To everyone at Godiva Academy of Performing Arts - I am Jon Rees, the Course Leader of Stella Mann College of Performing Arts, where one of your Principals, Danni Camby trained, and I wanted to write you a quick note to welcome you to this first major performance of your fantastic school.
Danni We all have lovely memories of teaching you at Stella Mann College, and I'm sure Miss Danni is bringing the same wonderful spirit, generosity, energy and talent to Godiva Academy that she brought to everything that she did at Stella Mann, including a fantastic Sally Bowles in Cabaret that I still remember so fondly. Good luck to all the performers in this show and I hope everyone in the audience has a great time seeing all these talented young people do what they love under such inspirational teaching and leadership. To any students who are hoping to continue their training at full time Stage School come and attend one of our free open days next year; we would love to see you there and to build on this first class training that you are receiving at Godiva Academy.
Jon, Course Leader at Stella Mann College
