BURGESS Hill’s JK Theatre school is offering the chance to learn to sing and dance like Michael Jackson as its half-term treat.

They are staging a Michael Jackson workshop on Monday, February 21 from 10am-4pm at the Park Centre, Burgess Hill. The cost is £25 per child, with sibling rates available, aimed at ages six to 16 years.

Kim Wright, co-director and dance teacher, who grew up in Horsham, is promising plenty of age-related fun. The younger children will work on the song ABC; the older performers will look at Man In The Mirror.

“The workshop includes lots of singing, dancing and acting, and the children will have a fun-filled day whilst learning in a creative environment.”

JK Theatre, which has been in existence for two and a half years now, aims to prepare its students for all aspects of performance for stage and TV using the three key disciplines of musical theatre - dance, drama and singing. Its regular classes are on Wednesdays at the Park Centre.

Kim said: “Children at JK will build on their ability to interact with others in a fun learning environment whilst building their confidence. We encourage children to perform to boost their self-esteem and achievement.

“Students have the opportunity to express their individual talents and strengthen their social abilities within a welcoming and disciplined team.

“All students will be given the opportunity to display their talents on stage in our regular performances. The school takes on a strong community role and performs locally across Sussex.”
