Our summer school is designed to be challenging but we are also here to be supportive and work with you to nurture your skills and help grow your confidence.
You will have the chance to train with current Trinity Laban students, meet our inspiring alumni, see a West End show, sign up for optional 1-1 consultation lessons and find out about further study.
A typical course day runs from 09.15-16.45, with time for breaks and lunch in between. At the end of the course, an informal sharing event gives you the opportunity to perform to each other and share some of what you have learned over your week with us.
In addition, the course timetable includes an evening group trip out to the West End to see Everybody's Talking About Jamie.
Please note, all information below is subject to change.
Most sessions will split evenly into two different groups each day to give you the chance to train with all participants throughout the summer school.
With Omar Okai and Lucinda Brereton
Our dance classes will concentrate on performance/acting skills within musical theatre choreography and are fast-paced, in order to show the technique needed in picking up combinations quickly and overcoming nerves. Along with this, you will explore choreography from a well-known show.
With Helen Evans
This class will introduce you to the skills and techniques needed for acting within musical theatre.
Musical Theatre Integration
With Verity Quade and Graham Newell
This class explores how to combine the skills of singing, acting and dancing for musical theatre.
With Liesl Dowsett
This class will introduce and guide you through the basics of Ballet and introduce new techniques to help you refine your skills with content that complements that of the general dance classes.
Acting & Singing for Audition
With Clare Foster and Scott Harrison
In these sessions you will explore acting through song, giving an insight into how to effectively prepare for and present yourself in singing auditions, and how to prepare a monologue for auditions.
Participants are requested to bring an audition song and a short monologue to work on during these sessions.
The Open Sharing is an informal performance at the end of the Summer School where you will present the material you have worked on over your week with us.
Optional Consultation Lessons
Participants are also able to book 30 min or 1-hour optional 'add-on' consultation lessons in either singing or acting. These sessions (held during lunch or after course hours) provide valuable one-to-one time with our industry professionals and are an excellent way to focus on a particular aspect of your individual development. To get the most from these sessions we recommend you prepare a song or monologue for these consultations and/or come prepared with questions.
