Urdang is an amazing up and coming performing arts and dance college!!! It is modern, exciting and the teaching is exceptional. It enhances West End networking and provide workshops with many musical theatre directors from the industry including Broadway. Both my Girls have had the pleasure of being taught there. My eldest is currently in Les Mis West End understudying Cosette. My youngest is in her first year. Read More

My daughter was made very welcome and loved every minute of her classes. The teachers were exceptional.

I was disappointed initially that the course I auditioned for had changed. But the dance classes have been brilliant and challenging. My technique has really improved, particularly in ballet. I have especially enjoyed the work shops, eg when the lady from "Cats" took a session with us. However I do not enjoy the musical theatre, nearly as much as the dancing. :)

I have really enjoyed the experience at The Urdang Theatre School, as it has given me a taste of what a proper theatre school is like. I have really enjoyed all the classes, meeting stars of the westend & also because it has improved my ballet skills and gave me more confidence in myself! thanks :)

I have found Miss Razzell, extremely helpful and caring towards my son. The programme dates have been very flexible which suits us extremely well. My son has enjoyed the experience and the class sizes were reasonable so he received quality attention. I have recommended this programme to more of my students and the trial sessions have been useful to introduce them to it.

The quality of the tuition at Urdang is
excellent; my daughter attends once a
month and has learnt far more at Urdang
than she could have done at our local dance
school. I think the cost is quite high but then
I also have to travel a long way to get to the
school; my daughter would attend more if we
could afford it though.
The staff at Urdang have always been
extremely helpful and the atmosphere at the
Urdang is very friendly every time we visit.
Overall I rate the Academy very highly.

All the classes that I attend are led by very professional staff with a very high standard of teaching and experience. The Urdang Theatre School course I attend is great value for money which includes excellent training, excellent facilities and regular visits from west end theatre professionals.

My daughter loves her visits to Urdang academy and is benifiting from the high standard of teaching she reseaves. It is great that she is able to do Ballet, jazz and singing in one afternoon. The staff are helpfull and very inspiring.

I have been delighted with the work that my daughter has undertaken at the Urdang Academy. She is totally enthusiastic about attending - such that she would love to attend more than once a month if funds allowed! She was thrilled to be asked to represent Urdang at the Olympia Exhibition and has been over the moon to work with Dean. The end of year performance was very exciting (particularly Thoroughly Modern Millie)... and meeting Flawless was the icing on the cake! All of the Urdang staff team are always very helpful and encouraging, and succeed in getting the best out of their students. Well done Lorraine, and thank you to all at Urdang! J & C Foster Read More

Going to Theatre Schools vary and i always feel it important to be sure that you are getting a good service. Based on the professional level of the teachers i feel that my young daughter gets a good and disciplined coaching for the fees we pay. The classes are friendly and she always comes out having learnt something new. Well done Urdang.
