6-9 year olds
Our Act 1 class is designed to give a strong introduction to musical theatre with a fast-paced mix of singing, theatre dance and drama.
We start each session with a dance and vocal warm up and always try to fit in a few drama games and ice breakers too!
Our students love to perform on stage and we believe this helps build confidence in performing in front of an audience. As a result we offer lots of live performance opportunities each year. Every child is given a speaking role in our productions as well as learning to work as an ensemble which is an essential part of musical theatre training and a great life skill!
All of our productions are staged with a full lighting rig and microphones and we provide fantastic costumes for every show giving our students a great insight into professional theatre.
Before each show we also have a photo shoot which goes onto a professionally recorded DVD of each production so parents can keep a memento of their child’s performance.
At least once a year we bring in theatre and TV professionals to give one-off workshops to our students. Past visiting specialists include: Nikki Trow (X-Factor & BGT Choreographer), Steven Arnold (Ashley Peacock from Coronation Street) Paul Russell (Celebrity Vocal Coach) & David Dray (Special Effects Make Up Expert)
it was just great to see the kids enjoy themselves whilst learning so much!
