AGE AT AWARD: 25
Hailing from Dumbartonshire, Pierce worked a number of jobs to support himself through his education. Whilst studying as an undergraduate, he made the courageous decision to leave university and follow his calling in dance. He went on to complete a two year course at Glasgow Clyde College and gained a place to study a dance degree programme at the London Studio Centre. His ambition is to perform in the West End.
Pierce has the combination of talent, passion and determination necessary to pursue a career in his chosen field, and has even hosted his own fundraising events to support his studies. However, without additional support he found he would be unable to complete his degree.
How the Award Helped
Pierce received a Dewar Award to help him complete his undergraduate studies in Theatre Dance.
