Central Musical Theatre School

a one year full-time foundation course

We offer a one year full-time foundation course created by choreographer and audition leader Hayley Franks Høier and musical artist Malin Astor where two complimentary perspectives of the "audition" and "performance" experience combine together to deliver a course geared towards taking students one step closer to a career as professional musical theatre artists.

The course has been designed for performers of 16 years and older with a special talent in at least one of the three disciplines; drama, singing and dance. We guide our students who are seeking to reach their highest potential to secure a place on a triple threat degree-level training program. This approach has resulted in contributing to Malin's and Hayley's former students acceptance to prestigious dance academies such as Trinity Laban, London, London Studio Centre, DOCH, Stockholm Sweden and The Royal Danish Ballet School.

We know from experience that a solid foundation of the basic skills is the core to success. Central's curriculum is heavily focused on improving techniques in all three disciplines, resulting in a highly demanding and technical program.This approach, that we are committed to, resulted in over 60% of our 2018/19 first year students being accepted into full-time three year courses and also mainstage musicals as follows: Den Danske Musical Skole, Fredericia (2 Students), Den Danske Skuespiller Skole, Aarhus (1 Student), Performing Arts School, Gothenburg (3 Students) and Mamma Mia, Tivolis Konsertsal (1 Student).

To support and inspire the students to maintain their focus and determination throughout the academic year, they will also take part in regular workshops held by both local and international performers and choreographers.

During the academic school year the students will experience performing in audition situations in front of a variety of professional panels, offering their feedback to each student individually.
