Rooftop Studios will play host to two Masterclasses with professional stage performers this summer, offering newcomers and budding stars some top tips and insights into how to get ahead in the industry.
The Masterclasses will form part of part of the school’s Summer Holiday Club, which runs from Monday, August 10th to Friday, August 14th. They will be led by two of the studio’s many industry contacts; London-based choreographer Alex Scurr, whose C.V. includes dance performances for film and television, and West End star Richard Smikle who, born and bred in Stoke-on-Trent, has gone on to star in the hit Michael Jackson musical ‘Thriller’.
Alex will take the first of the Masterclasses on Tuesday, August 11th, offering two age-specific choreography sessions (7-11 year old from 10.45 am – 12.15 pm and 12+ year olds from 1pm – 2.30 pm). In addition to performing, Alex has taught at various theatre schools, colleges and dance studios in both London and Australia. His class would be extremely beneﬁcial for anyone wishing to go into further stage and/or dance training and work with someone of his standard.
On Thursday, August 13th, local lad Richard Smirkle will again showcase his ‘Thriller Live’ Workshop, in age-specific classes in the morning and afternoon. This is a must for dance fans and wannabe stars as Richard will demonstrate original Michael Jackson choreography, as well as signature moves and dances used in the WEST END show! Richard has a fantastic pedigree, having left Staffordshire for London aged just sixteen and gone on to feature as a member of the original cast of THRILLER LIVE dancing with the likes of GIRLS ALOUD, THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS, DUFFY, JLS and many more.
Limited places are available on the Masterclasses, which can be booked on a standalone basis at £15 each. Classes will be run from Rooftop Studios, High Street Arcade, Stone, Staffs, ST15 8AU. To book, please contact Laura on 07966 539 555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
