The Associated Studios Easter School is the perfect opportunity for aspiring Musical Theatre performers to try real ‘triple-threat’ training in the heart of London.
Students will take part in 5-days of fun-filled classes and workshops, working with some of the top industry professionals from London’s West End in all 3 disciplines of Acting, Singing and Dance.
You will work with people of your own age and ability level (from no experience to advanced level) and our tutors will work hard to make sure that you get the most out of every class to be the best performer you can be!
WHO SHOULD APPLY
The course will run at our regular venues in Hammersmith, London. All 5 days will run from 9:30am – 5pm, with students giving a performance showcasing some of their work to friends and family on the final day. This will be followed by our ‘farewell presentation’.
