April Nicholson started her professional life as a fully trained dancer after attending a theatre/ballet school from the age of 11. From there, she went on to advance her dance training with Andrew Hardie, whilst attending the Guildhall School of Music for singing training. Her career progressed and she appeared, as Chastity, in Cameron Mackintosh’s first West End production of Anything Goes. She later retired to bring up her three sons and returned to acting and singing, after completing a Postgraduate Acting course at Central School, in 2003.
