These workshops teach performance techniques, such as the creation of choreography, ensemble teamwork and character development, while building confidence, inspiring creativity and prepare students for their theatre visit.
A workshop suitable for groups of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, this workshop explores the creation of ensemble performance, combining individual choreography developed by each member of the group, with group choreography which finds unity in the chaos.
Through character development and devising exercises, students would work in groups to develop choreography to 'Blackout', telling the story through their characters, and working towards a performance at the end of the workshop to show to the rest of the group.
Musical Theatre Workshop
In The Heights is a unique musical for London's West End, combining rap and Hip-Hop with traditional musical theatre. It's complex choreography and multi-layered lyrics make it a spectacular show to witness, but a challenge for any workshop group to learn.

In The Heights Official Workshop
'The Heights' is the vibrant Latino neighbourhood of Washington Heights in New York. Life has always been a struggle in this 'Barrio' but there's a change in the air as residents find themselves being priced out of their homes as a result of gentrification.
It's different from anything else around: the style of music and the storytelling are unique. Beginning as a word-of-mouth sensation on Broadway back in 2008, audiences have come back time and time again to see IN THE HEIGHTS, a Tony award winning musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the man behind the critically acclaimed HAMILTON - soon to be making its West End debut. Vibrant, funny, and life-affirming, IN THE HEIGHTS explores the issues affecting society through modern dialogue, hip hop and street dance.
