Starting 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 notes might help you:
Where do I go?
All our Monday, Wednesday and Saturday classes are held at the Canolfan, Gorseinon.
with the exception of our pre-school ‘Debut’ classes which are held at Waunarlywdd Community Centre and Upper Killay Recreational Hall. Full addresses are on our CONTACT page. CONTACT PAGE THIS WAY!
Where do I park?
All our venues have plenty of FREE car parking.
Who do I see upon arrival?
At the Canolfan, we have a reception desk at the entrance. Emma will be pleased to welcome you and if it’s 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, which are ideal if it’s your first time at Musicality and you are still a little unsure about joining. All fees are paid via bank transfer, except trial classes which may be paid in cash.
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, unless it is a class before the new term commences.
What do I need to wear and/or bring?
We do have a uniform, which ‘our Musical Theatre students should wear to each class, but as a special thank you for joining our Musicality family, we provide a FREE T Shirt to all new Musical Theatre students on joining. Please wear your T shirt or any other Musicality branded clothing to all classes. We also suggest bringing a bottle of water with you. we do not allow fizzy drinks or sweets into class. Additional Musicality Academy branded items may be purchased online at ROCK THE DRAGON
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! A large percentage of Musicality Academy students also attend our dance classes, which have been designed to create a passion of dance. Each class offers all types of dance to all types of music. We offer a 10% multi-class discount for those attending more than one class. Our dance classes are aimed for students aged 4-14.
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.
