About Our Musical Theatre Classes

Musical Theatre Minis (Age 4-6)

The perfect start for the youngest performers!

Our Theatre Academy Minis is a fun-filled 60 minute class, jam-packed with singing, drama and dance for boys and girls aged from 4 – 6 years.

We explore the wonderful world of musicals, get under the skin of characters and find our voice in a fun, creative and supportive environment.

The perfect first step on stage to help develop little personalities and creative team work.

Musical Theatre Academy (Age 7 – 16)

The next step in your onstage journey!

Our Musical Theatre Academy offers more in-depth training and workshops for children aged from 7-16 years. Junior sessions run for 90 minutes and the Inter/ Seniors levels for 2 hours and 30 minutes, with the time split between vocal coaching (singing), acting and script work, plus stage dance and movement.

With no prior experience necessary, our experienced and professional teachers work in all genres of musical theatre to help students develop vocal technique and harmony, hone their acting skills and polish their dance technique.

For those with some experience in performing arts, there’s a focus on more challenging vocal and harmony techniques and a chance to work on full drama scripts.

The academy content is tailored in line with those attending, but we typically split into smaller groups to allow focus on core areas in line with experience and ability. The whole company also has the opportunity to perform together on full chorus numbers, giving all students a real feeling of achievement, teamwork and community.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much experience do I need?

Whether you’ve been singing, dancing and acting for years, or this is your first step on stage, everyone is very welcome at Edinburgh Theatre School.

Other than our Mini Academy (suitable for ages 4-6 years old), we group our students by experience and ability, rather than just age.

This lets everyone learn at a level and pace that’s comfortable and appropriate for them, and keeps more experienced students motivated and making good progress.

What should I wear?

For your taster sessions – just wear something comfortable that’s easy to move in (not jeans!), and bare feet or socks are fine.

Once you decide to register for Edinburgh Theatre School we’ll add a uniform t-shirt to your first invoice and send you details of the additional items.

You can buy uniform items via our DN Dance online shop.

Can I try before I book?

Yes, you can give our Theatre classes (including Mini Theatre) a try – just book your taster block online for just £15 – we hope you have a brilliant time and decide to join us for more!
