THEME: LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL
Our Musical Theatre Workshops are for all people aged 12 and over, but the majority of our participants are adults.
We would be more than happy to organise classes for children if we see sufficient demand. So, if you would like similar classes for your child, please let us know and we can look into arranging something.
Our Musical Theatre Workshops are the perfect way to let your hair down before the start of another week.
For three hours on a Sunday, our expert workshop leaders will work with you in three different disciplines: acting, singing and dancing.
Our Musical Theatre Workshops are for people who want to get singing, acting and dancing in a non-judgemental setting. Our workshop leaders enable everyone to feel comfortable. We welcome people with little or no prior experience in musical theatre.
We will have with two groups of up to 25 people: one for people with little or no experience; and one for people with more experience. Our small groups are a great chance to meet people in Brussels with similar interests.
For all aged 14 and over.
We plan to make our Musical Theatre Workshops a permanent fixture in Brussels.
Each term will run for 10 weeks. You will get expert tuition in acting, singing and dancing. We will not work towards a performance as such but we may end the term with a showcase for friends and family.
The Workshops will run 10am - 1pm (intermediate) or 11am - 2pm (beginner) on Sundays at Studio Empain, Rue de la Presse 9.
Cost: €270 for the term, payable upon registration.
