HNC/HND Performing Arts (Musical Theatre)

Course overview

This course is deliv­ered at the East­ern School of Per­form­ing Arts (ESPA) in Stam­ford and encom­pass­es all aspects of Musi­cal The­atre. It pro­vides an excel­lent ground­ing in singing, danc­ing and act­ing, along­side devel­op­ing indi­vid­u­al­i­ty and per­for­mance skills.

Work­ing in a voca­tion­al man­ner, in a pri­vate the­atre school set­ting allows stu­dents to focus and com­mit to their craft.

Stu­dents learn through a bal­anced pro­gramme of core train­ing in act­ing, singing and dance tech­nique along with devel­op­ing artis­tic and cre­ative indi­vid­u­al­i­ty. The course com­pris­es of mod­ules which include Jazz, Singing, Vocal Reper­toire, Act­ing and a Cre­ative Research Project.

There are 15 con­tact hours per week and the course also allows stu­dents to take addi­tion­al class­es along­side the qual­i­fi­ca­tion to devel­op a five day a week schedule.

ESPA stu­dents will have their own study area on non-taught days for inde­pen­dent study and rehearsal. Through­out the course ESPA stu­dents will also be offered guest work­shops with indus­try professionals.

ESPA pro­vide a sup­port­ive envi­ron­ment that fos­ters not only the artis­tic devel­op­ment but also intel­lec­tu­al and per­son­al devel­op­ment with­in all its stu­dents. The train­ing is based around prac­ti­cal ses­sions and per­for­mance expe­ri­ence, where the three skills are brought togeth­er. Stu­dents will also study the his­tor­i­cal, styl­is­tic and pro­fes­sion­al aspects of the indus­try cul­mi­nat­ing in a sol­id under­stand­ing of the per­form­ing world.

You will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to per­form in both a show­case and full scale show dur­ing both the first and sec­ond year of the course along with some small­er com­mu­ni­ty based and in house projects.

ESPA offers per­son­alised feed­back, fos­ter­ing growth beyond belief in a safe, wel­com­ing envi­ron­ment. I believe any­one could ben­e­fit from their training.”
