Throughout your GAMTA experience you will have the opportunity to perform. From the first week of your training you will perform for your peers and tutors in performance class. This is a peer lead class where students perform a range of material; acting pieces, solo songs, duets and dance pieces. The student audience is encouraged to offer constructive feedback on each performance. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore your own progress, push your boundaries, be creative and work with whomever you choose; creativity, technique, character, style and genre are only some of the elements explored within this class. Performance class is one of the most important, and exciting, classes of your week.
You will take part in two in-house performances: one musical and one play. You will continue to build your repertoire, resilience and skills through weekly performance class.
You will take part in at least two in-house performances, plus one fully-produced public production, where you will perform as ensemble. You will also take part in events across the UK such as corporate events or Theatre In Education (TIE) workshops in schools.
