Training Opportunity

One Year Intensive

Our ONE-YEAR INTENSIVE in Musical Theatre runs from September to July each academic year and provides exceptional training in singing, dancing and acting, working towards consolidating technical and performance skills with just under 50 hours of practical tuition per week including a weekly one-to-one singing lesson.

Using our direct links with the UK's leading Musical Theatre training academies, our aim is for all our students to either obtain a place on their chosen course at their desired performing arts institution or gain professional employment within the performing arts, by the end of the year's tuition.

Prospective students (aged 16 and above) must have a strong passion for the performing arts with the determination to be the best they can be. They must be prepared for a tough schedule of classes each week, including body conditioning and stretch classes.

All tuition takes place at our studio complex in Canterbury, Kent led by our incomparable faculty of leading industry professionals.

Each year includes two performance opportunities at the nearby Malthouse Theatre, including an Industry Showcase (in March) performed to an invited audience of agents, casting directors and colleges and a full-scale musical production (in July) to give our students the chance to experience a professional rehearsal process.

A typical day at JGHA starts at 8.30am with a company warm-up and include Ballet, Jazz, Acting, Voice and Singing, finishing at 5.30pm. We also offer weekly classes in Tap, Contemporary, Commercial, Musicianship, Audition Technique and Acrobatics.
