Meet the Billys – Mitchell Tobin | Billy Elliot The Musical

Hi, My name’s Mitchell, I’m 14 years old and
I play ‘Billy’ in Billy Elliot The Musical. [SOLIDARITY from Billy Elliot the Musical
plays.] I first started dancing when I was 3 years
old because my mom used to always drag me to my sister’s dance competitions and then
I decided seeing my sister on stage is what I wanted to be doing, so my sister helped
me kind of get into it and made me take a couple of dance classes. That’s how I got
to the dancer I am today. My journey with Billy Elliot started on tour.
Every audience is different, especially in different countries. I kind of got used to
getting in and out of places, so when I came to London for the first time, staying in a
place was really weird to me. Once I got used to it I really like staying in one place! My favourite dance is Dream Ballet. I really
like flying and partnering with the ‘Older Billy’. When I first started flying I was so
excited to get in the air and spin around. I’ve never seen a kid my age be able to have
the opportunity to do it, so I really like to be able to do it every night. [SOLIDARITY, from Billy Elliot the Musical
plays and fades out.]
