Razzamataz Theatre Schools is launching new classes designed to support students who wish to pursue a professional career within the performing arts.
You just need to switch on the TV to see the endless programmes surrounding making it in the world of show business. From the X Factor to Britain’s Got Talent and even children’s shows such as The Next Steps, the desire to be an actor, singer or dancer shows no sign of abating.
But with this increased desire comes increased competition and to make it into one of the top performing arts colleges, it takes determination, talent and top class training.
In response to this growing demand, Razzamataz Theatre Schools is launching a new product to designed to support students who wish to pursue a professional career within the performing arts.
Razz Project Intense is launching at five Razzamataz schools in September 2016, with further schools offering the classes from the October half term.
Denise Hutton-Gosney, MD and Founder of Razzamataz explains:
"Over the years, many of our students have gone on to secure places at prestigious colleges to study performing arts and although the schools help individuals with their auditions, it is incredibly exciting to offer a class where we can work with a group of young performers and prepare them for the tough round of auditions that the top performing arts colleges expect."
Razz Project Intense will allow staff to teach in the specialist areas of dance to help build a strong technical skill base to equip the Razzamataz students with the correct guidance, skills and confidence to be better prepared for professional vocational college auditions.
"As well as improving their technical skills, we will also work closely with individual students to emotionally prepare them for the auditions. This may be the first time that any of these young people have auditioned so mental preparation is equally important."
One of the benefits of Razzamataz is that as well as having many teachers who are experienced performing arts professionals, the schools run regular workshops with industry experts, allowing the students to get a real feel for what it means to work as a professional performer.
"All the guest teachers who come to put on workshops are very generous with their time and give the students the opportunity to ask questions about working in the industry. Not only does this give our students practical advice, but it is also very inspirational to have this level of support available."
As well as Razz Project Intense, Razzamataz is very proud of its Future Fund charity, which offers grants for students going on to study full time at college.
Each year, the auditions are judged by a team of industry experts from the world of dance, acting and singing. Past judges have included dancers who work with Take That, Ellie Goulding and on Strictly Come Dancing, West End musical performers and an associate director on various tours.
"At Razzamataz, we take the ongoing development of our students very seriously. We believe that Razz Project Intense will be a real stepping stone onto further performing arts training for many of our students."
