ToTheCore is a professionally run performing arts company aiming to provide its members a well-rounded experience in being a performer in a company. A company member might gain valuable guided practice in the art of independent training, performance and stage craft, theatre etiquette and working as a solo artist as well as an ensemble member.
This course, running the duration of the summer term from March to June (with an Easter break) will consists of:
Company classes held at the DDF studios in South-East London.
Rehearsing towards creating performance pieces with current industry professionals at the top of their field!
Performance opportunities as in a professional company, both in solo work as well as ensemble.
Opportunity to create material towards producing a showreel
Gain valuable audition skills through experiencing various auditions (both in real time and via self-taping) for acceptance onto the cast of a piece.
Company classes and workshops might be in: Ballet – Jazz Dance – Contemporary Dance – Tap Dance – Hip Hop – Commercial Dance – Singing – Acting – Body Management
A typical morning’s session might consist of one or two warm-up or training classes in dance and/or vocal work, dependent on the activities of the afternoon session. The afternoons would be devoted to rehearsals and the creation of show material, to be performed at several opportunities throughout the term. Performances will consist of bespoke and repertoire pieces of work, created and/or recreated by professional choreographers and directors with the company members; all tailored to show the strengths of each individual performer, giving optimum opportunity for casting-directors, directors and choreographers to see company members at several opportunities.
A possible format for this year’s 2021 main production is:
ACT I – an abridged Musical Theatre Production (TBC) Approx. 45 Mins
ACT II – up to 8 Song & Dance pieces Approx. 45 Mins
Links to the profession: ToTheCore will endeavour to expose its members to as many industry professionals as possible, not only by inviting key industry figures to its showcases, but also to possible in-house rehearsals, presentations and press call sneak peaks; just as if working in the West End or other professional companies. Our aim is to allow a student to list this opportunity as a professional experience and it be recognised by the profession as such.
