A one year, full-time pre-vocational course in Musical Theatre for ages 16 – 24 years. Located in Needham Market, just off the A14, CTC Studios boasts state of the art, purpose built studios with fantastic public transport links and ample free parking on site.
As a small college, students are carefully selected based on raw talent, passion and trainability – no student is the same and at CTC we encourage you to take ownership of your training within our pathway system guided by our expert faculty who are dedicated to helping you get the very best out of your training, no matter what your background.
CTC Foundation is a personalised training programme aimed to empower, expand skill-set and enable you to realise your full potential in all aspects of performance.
Our small class sizes actively uphold this ethos alongside a proactive pastoral support network, in conjunction with the Mental Health Charter for the Performing Arts: #time4change. As recent advocates of this innovative movement, we pride ourselves on our open door policy where welfare and happiness are of prime importance, inside the studio and beyond.
CTC Foundation does not specialise in one discipline, it lays the foundations of the triple-threat performer carefully balancing core technique training across acting, singing and dance whilst nurturing originality and creative flair. The course is carefully balanced between delivering focussed audition preparation, allowing students to develop technique and repertoire for further vocational training and preparing students with the physical and mental stamina for a life-long career in one of the most competitive industries.
As an independent performing arts college, the CTC can provide open and impartial advice to students when selecting full-time colleges for auditions based on the needs of each individual.
