Musical Theatre Classes

Emma Dodds Musical Theatre Classes

Our Musical Theatre Classes combine singing, dancing and acting to provide our students with a rounded training and the ability to deliver a "triple threat performance!"
In order to succeed in the best way possible performers are required to be a "triple threat" in mastering the art of singing, dancing and acting. This is reflected in the School's logo where all three skills work alongside each other in perfect harmony.

We aim to broaden the students skills, encourage them to stand out from the crowd and step outside of their comfort zone to achieve more than they ever believed possible!
Musical Theatre performers need to be equally skilled at every aspect of showmanship.

Our classes are led by Industry professionals with a wealth of knowledge and experience in a warm friendly environment perfect for the students to learn, make friendships and above all have fun!

 

L.A.M.D.A.

LAMDA classes help you gain confidence, improve your performance skills and enhance all aspects of your academic and social education, the aim being to help you grow into a more rounded individual.  Of course, it also teaches fundamental basics and a strong background for those wishing to venture further into the performing arts.

Now in it's sixth year, Lamda at Doddies continues to flourish with a 100% pass rate, of which the students can be immensely proud. For many tackling an extra subject alongside their studies for SATs, GCSE's or A Levels has been a tough, but rewarding challenge.

Last term every examinee achieved a Distinction (80% and above) , with a few earning a fantastic 96%!

This academic year will see more group work developing and many students beginning to study at Medal Level: tackling Greek Tragedy, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Stanislavsky, Brecht and much more.

For some, Lamda studies has lead to participating in the Suffolk Festival of Performing Arts and we are excited to see what the Doddies bring this year!
