Work with West End Professionals, including Craig Mather & Rosie Mather (Les Misérables/Wind in the Willows), with this weekly, dynamic that class provides young people with an introduction to musical theatre.

Each term we explore songs and create ensemble numbers that explore how to integrate the singing, dance and acting techniques needed to perform on the West End stage.

Don’t worry if you’re a little shy as most of the learning is done in groups with opportunities for solos when you feel more confident about being in the spotlight.
