The Robyn Academy is delighted to announce that Aimee Tutt has joined the West End cast of the internationally award-winning Billy Elliot the Musical. Aimee is scheduled to renew her contract for a second term to perform as a ballet girl alongside the central character of Billy Elliot in Mrs Wilkinson´s ballet class. Mrs Wilkinson´s ballet girls feature throughout the show as the children´s ensemble, accompanying Billy on his dancing journey.
Aimee is thrilled to be performing as the character Sharon Percy and has been made an understudy for the character Debbie, Mrs Wilkinson´s daughter.
Aimee is 14 years old from Gravesend and is a keen competition dancer, winning numerous titles and championship events. Aimee most recently performed with Craig Revel Horwood in Peter Pan at the Dartford Orchard Theatre.
