Bingley Grammar School

Musical Theatre Workshops

At the beginning of July Miss Mawson invited her brother Jonathan into school to run a series of after school 'musical theatre' dance workshops.

35 students came along to the sessions over the two days and all the students enjoyed the experience thoroughly. There was a range of abilities from complete beginners through to several having had experience at Theatre Schools. The mix worked brilliantly with our more experienced dancers supporting the others with Jonathan's choreography.

One group of dancers were working on West End choreography from Legally Blonde and the Year 7 drama club worked with Jonathan to create a musical number to further develop their performance of The Tempest.

Jonathan began his career after graduating from Laine Theatre Arts with a diploma in dance. His theatre credits include: Starlight Express, Bochum (Purse), Legally Blonde, West End (Swing), An Evening of Dirty Dancing, UK Tour (Rob, Dance Captain), High School Rocks! UK Tour (Ensemble, Dance Captain).

Our students really enjoyed the experience and we would like to thank Jonathan for giving up his time to work with them.
