Dance is our central ethos. We offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz technique, jazz commercial/lyrical styles and singing. This supports both the training of aspiring dancers and musical theatre performers.
Most professional musical theatre auditions begin with a dance audition, whether the student is specialised in singing, acting or dance, he/she will need to pass this audition before proceeding to the next stage.
Dance is therefore the core skill at The McMahon School of Ballet & Theatre Dance. All students, irrespective of whether they have had much previous experience, must achieve a high standard in this discipline. Ballet is the foundation of all dance and our students participate in this subject, reflecting its status as the most essential technique to becoming a trained dancer.
The McMahon School of Ballet & Theatre Dance provides exceptional training for those seeking a career in the performing arts. Established in 1992 in Swinton and Wath-upon-Dearne, we offer simply the best and most professional dance training within the county of South Yorkshire.
The McMahon School offers a dynamic combination of up to the minute performance techniques, along with traditional values required by those seeking professional performance training. Whilst we accept that from a young age many learners embark on dance training for 'fun', we maintain that a strong emphasis on discipline plays an undeniably vital role in achieving success and employability whatever the industry.
We are of-course a local dance and theatre school; however, the enviable list of professional achievement attained by many of our past pupils speaks for itself.
This school provides its students with the upmost individual attention from experienced, dedicated, highly-qualified and professional staff. We will ensure every student gets the broadest spectrum of dance and musical theatre training in Mexborough, covering Swinton, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and Wath-upon-Dearne.
At The McMahon School of Ballet & Theatre Dance, our objective is to prepare pupils and students for employment in the entertainment industry as dancers and musical theatre performers. We’ll also enable each student to achieve the highest possible standard of professionalism and expertise to perform in front of any audience.
