World Wide Workshops
Not only do we offer the fundamentals for an all-round performer and teacher, students are given the opportunity to travel abroad, undertaking workshops with some of the most professional names in the industry, giving them a wealth of experience. The tours are at an additional cost to the student but we are fortunate to be able to offer them at competitive rates. We have summarised four of our tours below which some of our students have been fortunate to experience:
1. New York – The Broadway Experience
Students had an incredible time experiencing the top sights in New York, as well as seeing Broadway shows, not forgetting free time to hit Macy’s and Bloomindales. The students were lucky enough to have workshops from Broadway casting directors and the performers of the shows, such as the original ‘Dynamite’ from Hairspray, Dance Captain from ‘Wicked’ and Performers from ‘Moving Out’. This tour is one of a kind with not only having an exciting itinerary to sight see, but the experience and the contacts that can be made creating a truly unforgettable trip!
2. Lake Garda, Italy – Dance Tour
Outstanding Workshops in the centre of Lake Garda, incorporating a variety of dance styles. The students had a fantastic time visiting the wonders of Italy, including Lake Garda it self, Venice and its beautiful hand crafted stalls, Juliet’s Balcony, and the historical ‘Amphi Theatre’.
3. Branson – Performance
Branson isn’t a well known destination but little do people know that it is one of the leading places for the ‘arts’, alongside Westend and Broadway. The students not only had the opportunity to meet professionals and get handy tips from Performers in Branson such as, a Dancer from ‘Spirit Productions’, a talented group of a sister and her brothers known as the ‘Haygoods’, but actually Perform in several theatres also! Our students had the opportunity to perform a 20 minute set prior to a phenomenal show e.g. on The Branson Showboat, at The Haygoods, Six, Dixie Stampede and Legends in Concert. Branson is set in the heart of Missouri and is breathtaking in many ways, from the food, the culture and history of the area, the intriguing attractions and most of all the sheer variety of entertainment which is by far outstanding. To perform in these reputable theatres in front of a full audience was a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Hollywood – Acting Tour
Hollywood has been our most recent tour and one of the most unforgettable, with its diversity and glamour our students were in their zone of stardom. The students were able to participate in workshops at the famous ‘Stella Adler’ Conservatoire, with renowned practitioners. Los Angeles gave the students the opportunity to discover new and old facts around theatre and film, exploring behind the scenes at Universal studios and Sony Pictures, film land marks, Hollywood boulevard, and much more.
