Industry professionals from ‘Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts’ came to BOA on Tuesday 4th April 2017 to conduct a full day of workshops and Q&A sessions with the Year 12 and 13 Performing Arts students. The staff from Mountview provided brilliant advice to the students including audition tips - “Be sharper, faster, bolder than those around you” - and guidance on the courses available - “Work well with others, remember they will be your future team and we will be looking for those who network well”.
The sessions covered Dance, Acting, Musicality, Group Singing and Technical Theatre Arts, and students were able to sign up for their choice of workshops throughout the day. The students were inspired by the professionals they worked with and we received positive feedback.
Working with professionals in the Performing Arts industry is a brilliant opportunity for BOA students to enrich and embed their learning, as well as gaining an understanding of how vocational schools run.
