Triple Talent Training

In the world of performance ‘Triple Threat’ is a standard industry term used to describe someone who can act, sing and dance.

At Young and Talented our programme uses these three disciplines of acting, singing and dancing to give students ‘Triple Talent’ training – coaching them to become well-rounded individuals on Stage, on Screen and in real Life.

How our Triple Talent programme works 

Our 36 week Triple Talent Programme takes place every Saturday 10.30am till 1.30pm during term time for those aged between 7 and 17 at The Broadway Theatre, Barking.

The 36 weeks are divided into three terms:

  1. September – December. The first term builds an ensemble — the focus is on making new friends, building relationships, learning new skills and exploring individual talents.
  2. January – April. The second term devises a theatre show — they work on script writing, choreography and song writing. All the material created goes towards the final show.
  3. April – July. The third term of production — here the focus is on rehearsing the show ready for its audience at the end of term performance.

We achieve the above by splitting the 6-16 year olds into three age groups and leading them through a rotation of acting, singing and dancing classes.

All students have the opportunity to work towards stage performances and presentations. We pride ourselves in creating a dedicated, enthusiastic and very talented group of young performers.

Can anyone join?
Yes! Sessions are available for all ages, ambitions and abilities. Y&T have a teaching methodology that allows for a range of capabilities to work together. We do this by providing an environment that allows for exploration and play without judgment or restraint.

What will my child learn?
Acting for Theatre, Film and Live performance. Sessions are designed to develop acting skills through theatre games, improvisation, characterisation and script work.

Students gain the skills, concepts and methods used in the profession today and get to showcase their talents on the Broadway Stage.

Our team of tutors motivate students to attain their personal goals and give them the courage to express themselves as individuals.

Y&T is run under the artistic direction of BBC actress Suzann McLean. The acting sessions are delivered by professional director Roy Alexander Weise (winner of JMK Best Young Director Award, Trainee Director Royal Court).
