Focus is placed on building knowledge and understanding of the acting process. Techniques include characterisation work and vocal projection. Students are encouraged to devise their own material as well as improvising with scripted material.
The skills covered include choreography, stage presentation, physical and spatial awareness. Styles of dance include street jazz, musical theatre, lyrical and contemporary. These classes help develop the body to use movement expressively.
We provide vocal technique training designed to secure the health and longevity of the voice, as well as developing an understanding of how the body produces the sounds. We cover a wide range of music styles such as pop, musical theatre and jazz.
