The Media Theatre's new School & Dance Studio offers valuable training which happens daily locally in the Philadelphia region. It's a solid and reputable venue, built upon years of professional music theatre, which begs one to ask the question "Why travel to NYC to train?" or "Why search elsewhere?"
For instance, it's a fact that Broadway is the be-all and end-all goal for those who wish to 'make it big' in the world of theatre. Therefore, it must be the same when it comes to proper training, right? Wrong!
Training of good quality which produces proper technique, in the realm of acting, singing, and/ or dance, does not have to take place in NYC. Not that NYC does not have good quality training, but it's not any different than training locally---unless you are one of the top 5% of performers who have a continuous career on the stage.
There is no need to enroll your child or teen in a summer or seasonal program which is over two hours away in any direction, or even to travel into Center City Philadelphia. If you live in Delaware, Chester, or Montgomery Counties, The Media Theatre School & Dance Studio is only minutes from your home. It's 15 minutes from Wilmington, Delaware and between 20 and 30 minutes from any location on the Main Line.
The instructors at The Media Theatre are the same caliber you will find in NYC or Philadelphia. Several of them actually are from NYC or Philly, and audition for shows at The Media Theatre throughout the season. So, instead of traveling so far to 'train', allow NYC and Center City Philadelphia to come to you...right here at The Media Theatre School & Dance Studio.
Get rid of false pretense. Train in reality.
