What is the Fun Hub?
We teach your children Musical Theatre life skills so that they can perform in life, rather than the stage, in other words we are building stage-ready confidence for everyday life!
All classes take place on the 1st and 2nd floor of the beautiful Bernie Grants Arts Centre and is run by the founders of the award winning Musical Theatre Academy. Paid metered parking is available on site. We are a 5 mins walk from Seven Sisters Tube, or a 10 mins walk from Tottenham Hale Tube.
Register your interest now for upcoming classes for all ages. Be quick though…remember only 15 children in every class! The Fun Hub returns January 6th so book your child’s place for the new year, and don’t forget you’ll be entitled to 2 comps to The MTA’s Musical Theatre revue Something Old, Something New, on at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre between 7th – 10th March (due to the nature of the pieces in the show, it’s unlikely that this show will be suitable for the FunHubbers themselves)
What are the benefits?
Giving your child the gift of stage-ready confidence that will stay with them for life
Learning life skills through the mediums of singing, dancing and acting
We’re not training young performers, we’re enhancing young lives through the medium of performing arts
The FunHub will run in line with The MTA’s award winning structure, with each term lasting 10 weeks.
How does it work?
90 minute classes every Saturday, divided equally between singing, dancing and acting.
The Munchkins 4 – 6 yr old 10.30am – Midday
The Artful Dodgers 7 – 9 yr old 1pm – 2.30pm
Each term will have a Musical Theatre theme: Disney, West End, Broadway and Hollywood. No more than 15 children in a class, ensuring that your child gets the attention that they deserve (even if they are shy . . . at first). Staff will be strict but fair, so your child will be nurtured in a safe, boundaried arena. To get to ‘Hollywood’ you have to listen and behave!
Who runs it?
The FunHub staff are all experienced teachers/performers, all of whom are associated with the award winning college The MTA. Each FunHub is overseen by one of the senior faculty.
Your child will be taught by people that they can relate to…and aspire to be like. Young professionals who are passionate about passing on stage-ready confidence. All staff will already have extensive experience of teaching children. All our staff have their DBS and have gone through The MTA’s Child Safeguarding Training.
Uniquely all our staff have been mentored by a senior faculty member to ensure that they are implementing the most appropriate and effective teaching methods
Ok, so what makes us different?...
The biggest difference is the unique 4 term structure, so no long holidays of bored children waiting for classes to restart. The FunHub will be running 40 weeks/year. This unique structure will enable your child to maintain their progress after the short 3 week break, as opposed to regressing during a 2 month break!
At least once a year you’ll get a free family ticket to see The MTA’s infamous pantomime,where your child might even see ‘their teacher’ showing them exactly what stage-ready confidence could lead to.
Parents will get a discount to all MTA productions throughout the year. Free family tickets will be available for all other MTA age appropriate productions throughout the year.
Opportunities for your child to have backstage tours/meet the cast of all MTA shows.
The FunHub is managed by The MTA, an award winning college, which was named School of the Year in The Stage 100 Awards in 2012. The citation named it “a new force for training in the UK”. Statistics have proven that prediction to be accurate. Students of The MTA have fought off stiff competition to be one of just 22 elite people, considered able to be trained – ‘The MTA way’.
All profits from The FunHub are donated to The MTA’s Hardship Fund to ensure that nobody is turned away from training at the college due to financial hardship. The MTA was named as The School of the Year 2017, for an unprecedented second time!
