DANCE TECHNIQUE IS BACK

For all Senior LEAP pupils Yr 8 plus.

DANCE audition technique class will be running this Autumn Term from 6:15-7:30pm on selected Wednesdays led my Miss Durrant and Miss Stally. (Please note that these sessions will not clash with rehearsals for the LEAP productions).

If you are serious and determined to pursue a career in the performing arts industry and want an insight into drama school audition days this is a  beneficial class. Our aim is to offer experience through mock auditions, technical workshops and how to prepare for auditions. Guidance will be given on your audition material, how to present yourself and any areas you may need to develop further in order to give you the best possible chance of success.

What are these sessions about?

To succeed in Musical Theatre / Even some Drama courses you need to be a ‘triple threat’. Whether is dance your weaker discipline or strongest, you need to be ready.
