What to expect
As the first module students will work on at the University, students' technique levels will be assessed and a strategy developed to help them improve as practitioners and as musical theatre performers. Lecturers will specifically look at dance, ballet and jazz techniques and also choreography ability.
In the first few weeks, there will be a lot of technique, strengthening and flexibility work with drills working on specific elements like turns and leaps. Students will then move on to learning repertory and considering how they can perform using all of their musical theatre skills, looking at how to interact with people and how to perform out to an audience, combing acting skills with dance technique.
