Arts1 provides a specialist programme of Musical Theatre classes for young people aged between 4 - 16 years. These classes have evolved under the leadership of James Grimsey and Sophie Watts and are structured to provide students with a high level experience of Musical Theatre Performance. Arts1 students are encouraged to develop into all round performers and this class is where they bring together the three core disciplines of Singing, Dance and Acting as they work on pieces from Broadway and West-End shows alongside solo acting through song performances, perfect for perfecting their audition technique.
We have 9 classes of Musical Theatre for students aged 4 – 16. As students develop skills and increase in confidence they progress through the school until reaching level 9 where they will be working at the highest pre-vocational level and demonstrating the full range of Musical Theatre skills. All students study both group and solo work, they are taught how to use their voices and bodies for Musical Theatre, singing songs and performing sequences from both classic and modern shows.
