Dance workshop: Mini Musicals

Mini Musicals 1618.jpg

Our West End musical theatre dancers create tiny performances inspired by classic musicals in just one 40 minute session per class.

We can base the dance workshops on The Lion King, Mamma Mia or Oliver!

The children will develop their individual dance skills and experience working together as a large team. Children will develop, select and refine a range of motifs in response to the music and put them together as a performance.

The workshop concludes with a mini performance to each other and their class teacher at the end of the session.
