Wednesdays are 'Workshop Days'; visiting faculty and industry professionals hone our students' technique and teach new skills and/or dance styles, offering our students experience of professional choreography and technical requirements. We are proud of our highly qualified and varied faculty, enabling our students to forge important professional connections, gaining insight into the theatrical world. Students build knowledge of the world of performing arts as a performer, manager, technician and teacher for the theatre, television and film industries.
Our workshops include theatre trips, aerial skills, social media and digital skills training, vocal studies, exploration into puppetry, creative writing, professional performance skills, and more, all taught by field experts.
Our curriculum ensures students are taught key employment skills; students are coached in audition technique, film and video work, voice-overs, green screen, CVs, show reels, digital and social media skills, funding and professional bodies such as Equity, employment contracts and even tax, insurance and accountancy. We teach our students how to take care of their physical and psychological health through fitness, nutrition, wellbeing and safe dance practices.
