Mountview’s Foundation training finely balances core technique training across acting, singing and dance, while developing creativity and artistic identity.

The course is all about helping you find your creative voice and developing the technique needed to progress onto further vocational training.

Led by the same full-time training team as our BA(Hons) course, the Foundation in Musical Theatre is focused equally on the triple disciplines of acting, singing and dance.

There are 32 places available each year. Students receive between 32 – 35 hours of contact teaching each week over two 15-week terms.
