State approved diploma course in acting, dancing, singing and musical theatre

Conservatory Sunrise_Studios
is located in Vienna's seventh district. The airy studios are fully equipped and offer a perfect environment for creative work. Many theatres in the vicinity (Raimundtheatre, Volkstheatre, Kosmos-Theatre or Off-Theatre ) provide rich cultural surroundings and not only this aspect creates an atmosphere in which students will be able to deliver their very best.

The aim of our 4-year state-approved professional degree course in musical theatre is to train our students as singers, dancers and actors, imparting knowledge and skills that will enable them to establish themselves within the industry.

At the end of the course, students take their state-approved diploma examination awarding them recognised artist status. Each semester ends with an internal control exam in Dance (Ballet, Musical-Jazz, Sing&Dance, Tap), Singing/Musical Dramatics as well as Acting/Improvisation and Elocution. Every school year ends with a larger scale exam, determining the advance into the following year. Our goal is to create the most efficient timetable for each individual student while offering a wide variety of subjects. Number of lessons in a specific subject as well as the actual content of lessons are accorded to a special International system. Possible skills already acquired and the individual progress of each student are also taken into consideration.

We offer 30 hours training in dancing, singing and acting per week, the following subjects are taught within the course:

Dance: Ballett, Jazz, Modern Jazz, Musical Jazz/Repertoire, Dance Condition, Hip

Hop/Street, Stretching/Body Work, Sing&Dance, Tap

Singing: Solo, Ensemble, Voice Formation for Singers, Aural Training, Solfeggio, Breathing

Technique, Music Dramatics / Musical Theatre Repertoire, Music Theory, Body&Voice

Acting: Elocution, Acting, Theatre Sport/Improvisation

By including subjects such as Theatre Sport in acting, offering additional special classes in singing and several dancing styles as well as by inviting international well respected artists as guest teachers, we deliberatly provide as broad a base as possible, so that our students are best prepared for their life as a performing artist. Also, having enjoyed the benefits of such a diverse education, they will be more flexible than their competitors when the time comes to audition. It is our belief that a musical theatre performer should receive the same amount of training in all three areas (dance, singing, acting) to be able to work in each field seperately as well as combining the skills.

To enable our students to get enough of professional practice for the artistical future we organize some possibilities to perform in plays, shows, films, concerts, charity events or International competitions during the training period.

Besides we support our graduates to build their carreers, advising and informing them about auditions as well as about job offers and connecting them to the industry.

All our teaching staff are renowned experts in their fields, having appeared onstage and screen internationally. They share their experience by employing the most efficient methods geared towards practical implementation. Apart from the intense regular classes, we arrange singing masterclasses and high class dance workshops with well-kown international performing artists. That represent a unique chance to work with experienced performers.In general, we aim to equip our students with both practical and theoretical knowledge about the profession they are about to enter. This is why we organise additional seminars, some of the topics include nutrition workshops for performing artists, anatomy, physiotherapeutical coaching, careers advice, presentation at auditions and legal aspects (contracts, etc).
