Once A Month Training

Successful auditionees will join the programme of once a month training consisting of:

• Physical dance warm up
• Vocal warm up

• Dance audition preparation workshop
• Singing/vocal technique audition preparation

• Workshop with a West End guest teacher (a different guest teacher every month)

• Specialist dance workshop (learning a

Stage Three

DFA Associate

Each student will walk away with enhanced technique, confidence, performance, learning new skills and all in a positive working environment.

Meeting new West End Stars you gain that extra special training that wouldn't normally be possible.
