Our two unique contemporary musical theatre strands

13 June, 2022

Our pathways encourage independence, entrepreneurialism and innovation because these qualities will be required of any performer entering the contemporary performing arts industry. We don’t want you just to get work, we want you to make work.

The landscape of musical theatre is changing. Shows are being produced which require performers who are skilled in acting as much as the other disciplines, and in some cases more so, therefore there are two strands to our Contemporary Musical Theatre pathway.

 

Strand one: Contemporary Musical Theatre

This pathway offers you excellent training across all three disciplines. You will have classes in acting methodologies, acting for camera, voice, movement and improvisation.  Singing comprises of a series of classes: ensemble, rep, technique, and styles, where you will learn how to sing across a range of genres, including jazz, gospel, rock, pop and folk as well as legit. In dance you will have ballet, tap, contemporary and jazz, but you will also get to explore dance from a whole new perspective in our world dance sessions.

The aim is to expand your skill set. Yes, you may want to do musical theatre, but you may also want to act in plays or for film or tv or become an influencer or a presenter. This pathway gives you the breadth and depth to expand your skill set and open you up to a whole range of jobs.

Strand two: Musical Theatre

This pathway is designed for those of you who want to focus on dance as your main discipline, but who also value the importance of a well-rounded training in vocals and acting as well as the need to develop entrepreneurial skills and the techniques and tools necessary to be a versatile and dynamic performer.

Over the three years you will not only develop and build on your skills, but you will also learn to work with a dancer’s mind, understanding and addressing your own physical characteristics to reach your full potential. Strength, flexibility, alignment and coordination are all key aspects, but so is expression and interpretation; as a dancer you need to translate the physical into the emotional to take us on a journey with whatever story you are telling. This pathway will encourage you to view yourself as a creative artist.
