How do I register for a class?
Please email Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state which class you are interested in. You will then be contacted within 48 hours.
Can I park at the school?
There is a car park at Busbridge Junior School. You can also park on the road. Do NOT park next door at Busbridge Village Hall. This is for hall users only and you risk a fine or wheel clamping.
What do I wear to a StageStruck class?
Everyone must wear a StageStruck T Shirt which you will be given when you join. Please wear it to every StageStruck class.
On your bottom half - any loose clothing that you can move in. Tracksuits, leggings, combats or jazz pants are ideal. You will be dancing and need to be able to move, therefore jeans are not advisable. On your feet, trainers, jazz shoes, plimsolls or jazz boots are perfect. Please do not wear any platform shoe or sandals (flip flops), they are impossible to dance in and also dangerous! Girls with long hair must bring a hairband to tie back hair for dancing.
What do I need to bring?
Orange squash is provided but please feel free to bring your own drink. Songsheets/handouts are given to students most weeks so please bring a file to keep everthing safe. A cheap cardboard one will do as would a clip folder.
What happens in a typical StageStruck class?
At a StageStruck class, students participate in a number of activities. Usually we begin with a movement session or game for the younger children, which is followed by dance, using chart music or songs from shows. Singing involves warm up exercises, harmony work, microphone technique and performing to professional backing tracks. We will learn songs from the shows as well as chart/rock/pop music. Then acting, role play, improvisation, dialects, mime, stage fighting and much more. This is the basic structure of a class but it will vary from week to week. For instance one week we may focus more on acting and singing, the next dance and singing and so on. We try to cover all three disciplines in one lesson if we can.
