Why arrange a performing arts school trip?
See the professionals at work
Regardless of where you choose to go, your performing arts school trip will be packed full of opportunities for your students to see the professionals of the performing arts industry at work.
Whether it’s a West End or Broadway Show, a TV programme recording in New York or a behind-the-scenes tour of a recording studio in Nashville, your students will love this chance to see what life in the performing arts industry is really like.
And the professionals will always be very happy to speak to your students about their roles and responsibilities, as well as answer any questions they may have.
Your students will also have plenty of opportunity to learn directly from the professionals. In London, your students can learn more about dance and choreography at a Pineapple Dance Studios workshop.
And in New York, a Broadway workshop can concentrate on on-stage skills such as stage combat and singing, as well as backstage processes such as stage makeup and costume design. You could even enjoy a workshop focusing on the audition process.
And a film workshop at a film academy in the city will see your students learn all about the filmmaking process, from screenwriting to directing, editing and producing.
Explore future opportunities
Part of the joy of arranging a performing arts school trip for your students is seeing them explore the opportunities that your subject opens up for them.
The variety of experiences available means that there are plenty of opportunities for them to learn more about the various roles within the performing arts industry, showing them that they’re not just restricted to being a performer, there are endless other roles that they could consider, from screenwriters to casting directors, sound and lighting engineers and costume designers.
And, of course, if their future does lie in performance itself, your school trip will offer them plenty of inspiration. Explore Shakespearean theatre in London, musical theatre on Broadway, TV and film acting in Los Angeles and New York, or music in Nashville and New Orleans.
