Classes provide students with a thorough understanding of technique and cover the underlying principles involved in acting. The classes also develop social skills, communication skills and the ability to articulate thought. Classes cover characterisation skills, advanced improvisation work, mime, stage direction and audition technique.
We teach a variety of challenging dance styles such as street jazz, musical theatre and contemporary dance. Learning these diverse, exciting styles of dance helps students to develop their understanding of movement and expression. Classes also cover professional choreography, stage presentation and audition technique.
A wide variety of song styles are taught, including musical theatre, pop, rock and jazz. We teach breathing techniques and relevant anatomy and posture to ensure the health and longevity of the voice. Classes also cover harmonies and projection.
