Tring Park School for the Performing Arts' Virtual Open Day
Following the success of its first virtual Open Day, the Hertfordshire-based Tring Park School for the Performing Arts is holding its first online Open Day of 2021 on 30 January, for entry into the 2021/22 academic year. It aims to give potential students an insight into what life is like at one of the UK's most prestigious performing arts schools.
The virtual Open Day will include a tour of the school that will offer a glimpse into the life of current students, focus on academic and vocational lessons, information about the boarding facilities, classrooms and common rooms, a selection of course performances, interviews with staff and guidance on the application process.
Notable recent alumni include Sabrina Bartlett, currently starring in Bridgerton on Netflix as Siena Rosso, and director and choreographer Drew McOnie, who has enjoyed huge success as a choreographer and director in the West End and on Broadway. And recently, four Tring alumni were named as leading cast members in the West End premiere of Frozen, set for Spring/Summer 2021 at a refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane. The West End is filled with ex-Tring students, who have recently starred in musicals such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Hamilton, & Juliet, Motown, Mary Poppins, The Boy Friend, Only Fools and Horses, West Side Story and Curtains.
Tring Park School is both a day and boarding school for students aged 8 to 19. Vocational courses include the Performance Foundation Course, which is designed to act as the bedrock of a career in the Performing Arts, before students go on to either Commercial Music; Acting; Musical Theatre; and Dance in sixth form. Dance covers classical ballet, contemporary, jazz and commercial dance and is a three-year course in sixth form.
