Last week we were fortunate enough to film The MasterClass Experience Dance Masterclass at mac Birmingham. Now in its third year, TMCE is an intensive training programme for dancers based in the West Midlands led by professional choreographers, dancers and industry performers. Over the course of three days young dancers are put through their paces with jazz, contemporary, commercial and ballet routines, as well as receiving professional development through mock auditions and invaluable career advice. The programme builds to a final showcase, where the six choreographed pieces learned are performed before friends and family, offering participants the opportunity to experience life as a professional dancer.
As part of the programme students receive a DVD featuring the edited highlights of their experience, with every class, session and rehearsal filmed as well as the all important final performance. We were engaged by TMCE’s founder Emma Lingard to provide this service for last year’s MasterClass, and our work was so well received we were approached again for 2013. It was a privilege to be able to return, capturing the dynamic performances, breathtaking choreography and hard work that goes into the programme across the three days from both students and teachers. We also look forward to doing the same for the newly added MasterClass for 2013, Musical Theatre, at the end of August.
For the next few weeks we will be hard at work editing the final DVD, but we are thrilled to be able to help attendees relive the three days of their experience. For more information on TMCE, visit their website or watch the promotional video we created for them below:
