We like to treat every student as an individual, developing your abilities whilst ensuring you have a strong, broad foundation training in musical theatre. To ensure proper individual training, we stream our musical theatre students through two pathways: singing extension and dance extension.
You will obtain most of the same training in both pathways, the key difference will be the order in which you take the classes.
Our academic team will evaluate your skills and stream you accordingly.
