Dance and Musical Theatre


Our full-time Dance & Musical Theatre courses  give every dancer an amazing opportunity to gain a thorough insight into performing arts.

They allow you to experience all styles of dance and performance including ballet, tap, modern, jazz, contemporary, singing, acting and performance, plus choreography as well as working with guest choreographers/performers and vocal coaches from many West End shows. Each performer who enrols on a Dance or Musical Theatre course will learn the fundamental skills attached to producing a theatre production and will undertake projects that mirror the industry.  

You will work as part of a performing company, with major productions produced each year that are shown to the general public at the Miskin Theatre, to great acclaim.  All productions are overseen by professional, experienced practitioners. As well as your own performances, you will work alongside the acting, technical theatre, music and media companies, which will provide you with wider appreciation of the creative arts industry. These courses lay the foundations required for university or vocational college entry.
