Lockdown hasn’t stopped our students from learning

Students are now on their well-earned summer break after a term of online learning.

Although some challenges and lots of new technology to grasp, lockdown hasn’t proved to be a complete barrier for our staff and students, including our 2nd Years, soon to be 3rd Years!

With online classes in every aspect of Theatre, from Animal Transformation to Ballet, Jazz Technique to Singing Technique, Swing Theory to Music Theory, students have been dedicated in their pursuit to learn. During that time, from the confinement of their own homes, individual learning is brought together in this video. Watch how they study at home, learn Choreography by Mark Hedges and sing a new musical arrangement by our Head of Music Kelvin Towse, in a performance of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman’s ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ from the musical HAIRSPRAY!
