For children with drive and determination to make it in the world of performing arts, but who don’t have the training behind them, there is a fantastic opportunity to win a year’s worth of tuition.
YO1 Radio and Razzamataz York have joined forces with The Stage newspaper to offer scholarships to children and young people to attend the part time theatre school free of charge for one year, worth up to £855. The scholarship audition process closes 21st June so hurry!
To ensure as many youngsters as possible can enter, Razzamataz has created a scholarship system where students and potential students film a short demo of no more than two minutes long showing them performing either a musical theatre song and dance, commercial dance (hip hop or street), pop song, drama improvisation or scripted drama piece. The demo does not have to be professionally filmed. Applicants will also complete a short application form detailing why they would like to take this opportunity.
“We are looking for raw talent so it doesn’t matter if you have not taken part in any performing arts classes before,” says Angela. “We can spot the potential in these youngsters and know that with training from our highly experienced teachers, these young people can acquire the skills they need to progress in the performing arts. Students leave Razzamataz as ‘triple threat’ performers, which means they are skilled in singing, dance and drama, giving them the best opportunity to work in this competitive industry.”
