Workshop September 2017
This September we were delighted to have Amy Thornton take our agency workshop. This time around the workshop was to focus on audition advice and preparation, a necessary process of the industry which can be incredibly nerve-racking, no matter how talented you are as a performer.
Amy Thornton trained at Laine Theatre Arts and is currently the Assistant Choreographer on The Bodyguard, setting up the production in the US, Australia and Shanghai. With previous credits including Starlight Express, Grease, Fame, Flashdance, Rock of Ages and Cats, Amy has incredible knowledge to pass on and the clients benefited hugely from her insight and input.
We’d like to pass on some feedback from our clients so that you can hear from their mouths a little more of what they gain from these workshops:
Jac O’Kody (credits include Romeo & Juliet, Shakespeare’s Globe):
“Amy came in and both put us through our paces and gave each individual in the room specific and genuine feedback. Really mirroring the agency’s intimate and personal approach to it’s clients. An exciting and industry specific workshop. “
Marcus Foreman (credits include Legend, Musical Workshop, Theatre Royal Stratford East)
“It was so much fun to dance Amy’s choreography and be in the room with such inspiring people and performers, it reminded me why I want to be in this industry”
Joel Ekperigin (credits include Thriller, West End):
“It was great to be given the opportunity by BBM to be put in front of Amy. I feel very inspired by Amy and I found the whole workshop very insightful into the industry”
Elka Sowinska (new graduate, Urdang Academy):
“I found the workshop a really good insight into what the panel could be looking for. It was interesting to see the thought process behind their decisions and I found the feedback really helpful”
Chloe Lindsay (credits include Mamma Mia! RCCL):
“I loved the workshop, it was very fast paced and I learnt so much. I learnt that you really have to pay attention to the detail and technique the choreographer asks for – you don’t have to be able to do the best box jump, you just have to execute it well with the correct technique”
