We offer two streams of training; the Broadway and West End programmes. All students enrolling in either stream will receive weekly training and will perform in a fully produced show at the end of the semester. However, the Broadway programme offers students more intensive, triple-threat training and an additional weekly time commitment. Read carefully below what each programme offers and ensure you register for the programme which suits you best.
Students who enrol in our Broadway programme will receive intensive weekly musical theatre training in singing, dancing and acting. This training will cover a wide range of techniques in each discipline, including, but not limited to: vocal training – breathing techniques, posture; acting through singing, emotion; dance – various styles and techniques; acting – breaking down a script, intention.
Our Broadway students will also have the opportunity to audition for principal/lead/featured roles and the Dance Troupe for the end of Semester production.
The Broadway students will be required to attend a training camp in the first half of the semester.
The Broadway Programme is broken down into three groups, based on age. A student’s age is determined by the age they are at the start of the semester. If they have a birthday during the semester, they will only move up into the next class the following semester.

WEST END PROGRAMME
Students enrolling in our West End programme will receive weekly musical theatre training at weekly rehearsals, as our creative team work with them on enhancing their performance skills, whilst working on songs, scenes and choreography for the production. They will perform in the ensemble of the show at the end of the semester. This programme is designed for students who are keen to develop their musical theatre skills and who wish to perform in a show, but may not be able to commit to additional weekly rehearsals and the extra work required for a principal/lead/featured role or as a member of the Dance Troupe.
