Some amazing training weeks coming up this year at MGA…

The MGA School of Part-Time Studies has got an amazing set of training courses and workshops lined up this year, offering some excellent opportunities to develop your Performing Arts skills, learn new ones from fabulous visiting tutors, and to discover what it’s like to train and work in the industry.

January kicked us off in fabulous style with the first of our Sunday Masterclass sessions for 2019. We were delighted to welcome back Broadway composer and MGA friend Jonathan Reid Gealt to Edinburgh to lead two sessions on Acting through Song. We are thrilled to announce that we will be welcoming cast members from the UK tour of Matilda The Musical for the April Sunday Masterclass and booking is now open! Sam Lathwood, Anu Ogunmefun, Steffan Lloyd Evans and Michelle Chantelle Hopewell will join us on Sunday 21st April leading Acting, Singing and Dance workshops across two streams (ages 8 to 12 and 13 to 17).

We have two taster weeks coming up during the summer break:

Our annual Lads’ Week (Monday 22nd – Friday 26th July) is completely free and open to all the guys out there aged 13 and up with an interest in professional training. Meet other lads from around the UK who share your interests in Performing Arts and get to work with our MGA specialist tutors and some special visiting male artists. Book now as there are VERY limited places available. Find out more! >>

Everyone can experience life as a Performing Arts student on our A Week in the Life taster course (29th July – 2nd August), where anyone age 13 and up with an interest in professional training can follow the intense schedule of an Acting, Musical Theatre or Dance student over a full five days with us in Edinburgh!

Fun over the school holidays?

The annual MGA Summer School runs for two weeks during the summer break (22nd to 26th July / 29th July to 2nd August) and we are already taking bookings!

And looking ahead, we have another incredible week planned for October half term (14th – 18th October). After a stunning first Commercial Week last year, we have already opened bookings for 2019. Work with international choreographers in studios and special venues to dance in a professionally-shot music video. Find out more! >>

All these courses are open now and can be booked through the MGA Shop and Box Office. So what are you waiting for?!
