Luciana Akpobaro joined Razzamataz Sutton Coldfield in 2017. She’s currently in the Inters class. Luciana will be appearing in the new series of the Worst Witch on CBBC, where she has been cast as a series regular character. She has also recently filmed a new advert for McDonalds.

"I love Razz sessions because of their amazing energy and good vibes. Everyone is friendly and it feels like we are a big family. I always feel happy during the lessons. My proudest achievement was when I was given one of the awards in the 2018 Razzamataz Sutton Coldfield End Of Year Student Award Ceremony. I was not expecting it at all! Receiving the award was, once again, my Razz family telling me they believed in me. I was over the moon and it meant so much to me. At Razz, I always feel supported and encouraged to try new things. I then became more confident and discover new things about myself. I realised that I was not afraid anymore to be on a stage, I loved it! I started to look forward to the shows and rehearsals with my Razz family. What I am the most grateful for is that my teachers always showed me they believed in me, and now I finally believe in myself too. In the future I would like to be an actress and a performer. I would also like to be an author! I know I still have a lot to learn but now I believe in myself and that is what matters the most."

Mum says: “At Razzamataz, Luciana is encouraged to show her real self and embrace it. She now finally believes that being yourself is the most special thing you can ever be. What our children have been taught is a lot more than how to dance, act or sing. Razz has given a real life lesson about commitment, dedication, supporting others and team work.”
