Why come to Mighty Good as my day-school seems to offer the same things?
It’s a question often asked of us, as, many day-schools are now offering Dance, Singing and Drama Classes.
Our staff are extremely aware of what is required in the workforce through the professional work the other departments of the company does, and this carries into the direction of the school and our classes. As children are very aware of the pop industry and what they see on TV and you-tube it’s clear, they want to learn how to do what they see, and be a part of the bigger world. We teach today’s popular culture and develop many other styles to prepare our students for the future industry as current popular trends will change and students, and our curriculum need to change with them. We only teach the performing arts.
Our style of teaching is personal and is assessed with written reports, and awards are given to those who excel through our internal Audition assessments. However we are not involved in external performance competitions as we believe the performing arts is, and should be, available to everyone to enjoy, no matter what your particular talents. It’s important not just to win something, but to be part of the performance, to be happy, and continue to achieve and participate at your own level. Our curriculum also, does not involve competition between students, but a balance of personal development at all levels, which is important preparation for the audition process, and for that matter any other area of employment.
"Day school can only take an interested student so far, we can take them to the workforce if that is their motivation and ultimate goal."
Many students take classes just for fun and a healthy activity, many parents dream of a successful career for their children, and truthfully we can’t make every child a star, but we can develop their natural abilities as individuals and grow their confidence and self-esteem. I believe many reality TV shows and competitions have damaged the understanding of many an aspiring performer, as they often forget to address the many hours participators have spent learning and practicing their craft. It’s often all about winning a competition, not appreciating the performer’s ability to entertain and the personal commitment to be an artist in their chosen field.
Over the years many of our past students have become Producers, directors, costume designers, writers and a myriad of other industry related professions, as perhaps they didn’t have the natural talent to become a performer, but loved the industry and because of taking classes, understood what the industry had to offer in other areas.
