Have you ever watched a West End or Broadway production? Have you ever sat through a memorable dance movie? Ever tried to re create your own dance moves to the songs you love when nobody else is looking? Well now you can do it for real with our Stage & the City beginner 6-week Musical Theatre Dance Course.

What is Musical Theatre Dance?  

Musical Theatre Dance is a particular style of dance that incorporates drama and movement without the vocal aspect.  As a student you will learn how to breakdown the songs verse by verse and re enact it feeling and telling the story through basic choreography and drama.

Our friendly teacher, Jen Welch, is dedicated to helping you learn and guide you through the steps in a nurturing and encouraging way so that you won’t feel like you are just following a dance teacher on a screen. Every effort will be made to provide you with a more personal and comfortable experience, (hence the restriction on numbers). As well as learning some fab new dance skills you will be supported every step of the way to make sure you get the most out of your experience with us..

Throughout the 6 weeks you will be learning 2 different choreographies which will include styles of jazz, theatre jazz and lots of expression! The routines will be fairly challenging but always broken down step by step making them easy to follow. The main aim is to have lots of fun, challenge yourself, build confidence and leave feeling sassy and super energised! 

Everybody has a favourite musical.  From Grease to West Side Story, from Legally Blonde to Hairspray, from Wicked to Waitress, from Dear Evan Hansen to The Greatest Showman – all of them are classics and memorable for their songs and choreography.  Now you can learn some of these classics in our Musical Theatre Dance course.

The course is a beginners course and also for students who have basic dance ability, but not essential.
