Before lockdown this was originally going to be our Musical Theatre Beginner’s Course, which is the next step up from our Intro to Musical Theatre course.

However, to adapt with the current times, we are turning this into a 6 week zoom course which will give you the opportunity to send in material to create a montage with your fellow students. This won’t be compulsory for those of you that are nervous about singing or dancing by yourselves, but the opportunity will be there.

You will work alongside Stage & the City’s creative director, Mark Short and Musical Director, Jack Holliday.  You will be taught songs and choreography from Broadway and West End classics.

Throughout this course you will learn dance and movement routines to your vocals and create amazing storytelling performances. You don’t have to be the best singer, dancer or actor, but if you have charisma, a love for musical theatre and of course a love of performing, then this is the class for you. 

You will finish the course with the knowledge, confidence, achievement and combination of singing, dancing and acting skills. A great way to fully immerse yourselves in the musical theatre experience.

Course Content

  • Learn the fundamental techniques needed for vocals and movement.
  • Learn Acting through Song to create believable and engaging characters
  • Learn dance material to accompany your vocals
  • During weeks 3 and 4 you can submit a video of yourselves singing and / or dancing for one to one feedback
  • By the end of the course you can resend material that you have received feedback on and contribute to our Montage.

The Montage will be a selection of numbers performed by your fellow students and can be a keepsake and something to share with friends.

This course will take place on Wednesdays 10th June – 15th July via Zoom 8pm – 9pm. ALL profits from this course will go towards Saving the Anna Fiorentini Kids Charity Theatre School.
