16Starting a new hobby or interest can be daunting as well as exciting and in our experience, you might have a few questions that you’d like to ask. We hope the following might help you:
Where do I go?
All our Monday and Saturday classes are held at the Canolfan, Gorseinon.
All our Wednesday classes are held at Waunarlywdd Community Centre.
Full addresses are on our CONTACT page.
Where do I park?
Both our venues have plenty of FREE car parking.
Who do I see upon arrival?
At both venues, we have a reception desk at the entrance. we will be pleased to welcome you and if its your first ever visit, please don’t forget to pick up your Welcome Pack – This is full of useful information!
Can I pay per class?
Our classes are invoiced termly and we ask you to settle your invoice before term starts. We do however, offer trial sessions (see below) if it’s your first time at Musicality and you are still a little unsure about joining. All fees are paid via bank transfer as we no longer accept cash or cheque payment, except for trial sessions.
Do you offer ‘Trial Sessions’
Yes we do! For only £5, you are invited to trial any class of your choice. Should you decide to enrol (and we hope you do!), we will of course deduct this payment from your terms fees.
What do I need to wear and/or bring?
Please wear something comfortable like joggers and a T shirt and of course sensible shoes that you can dance in. We also suggest bringing a bottle of water with you. we do not allow fizzy drinks or sweets into class.
I have never done anything like this before and dont know anyone there – will I be made welcome?
Absolutely! Most of our students joined as individuals but soon made friends. We are a very close company and have pastoral assistants in all our younger classes to help ease stressful issues. At musicality we nurture whatever talents you may have, experienced or non-experienced. Our job is to recognise your potential and make sure you reach it. As long as you try your best and be prepared to have a go…you’ll have a great time at Musicality!
Is it possible to do Musical Theatre classes and dance classes?
Yes it is! 99% of Musicality students take Musical Theatre classes and a large number of these also take dance classes with us. Our dance classes are offered to compliment our MT training and for those considering performing arts as a career, are essential. None of our dance classes clash with MT sessions, so just let us know what you’d like to do and consider it done! We also offer a 10% multi-class discount for those attending more than one class.
I have 2 children interested in joining – Do you offer family discounts?
Yes, we appreciate the constraints of offering both or all children in the family the same opportunities, so we offer a huge 20% off sibling classes.
Will I/my child be in a show?
All our MT students are offered performance opportunities and we are always rehearsing for one show or another! Those not involved in one show, will soon be involved in another and our Mini Musicality students get the chance to perform in front of friends and family at the end of most terms…gradually getting them ready for the big stage!
Do you do exams?
No. Musicality is all about being creative and encouraging a passion for the arts. We find that it comes as a great relief to pupils and parents alike, to attend somewhere for pure enjoyment without the stresses and strains of exams. For those interested in auditioning for performing arts courses and conservatoires, we offer extended training, support and advice. Please speak to a member of staff if this is the case.
