Our unique study program is based on the original development of “Theatrical English”, defended as a special program of supplementary education in the Northern Administrative Region of Moscow in 2000.
A 4-year program offers an intense study of the following disciplines:
acting: fundamentals, theatrical English, scenic speech, stage movement
vocal training: breathing technique, articulation, phonics
voice training (individual classes)
ensemble (group classes)
solfeggio (elective course)
dance classes: contemporary, classical, modern jazz
choreography (group and individual classes)
Since 2010, being the main discipline in “MESS”, acting classes (taught in English) have been based upon the program of an exceptional book for musical theater actors, called “Acting in Musical Theater” (USA), which has no parallel in Russia!
This study guide had already gained deserved recognition in America, the birthplace of musical. It is only being used in Russia as part of the study program of our theater.
Beyond that, our teachers’ unique methods and practices are actively being used in class.
Apart from the main subjects, our study program includes:
workshops from our friends and partners of the theater
rehearsal hours and staging
premieres and regular performances of the current project
Each academic year ends with “The Little Broadway Show” - a concert that lets the students demonstrate their progress on vocals, dancing, and acting skills.
