PERFORM | TEACH | CREATE – the three pillars that define our training at WTS.  And in the words of Maya Angelou: "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."


At WTS we believe in empowering our students with the tools to create their own work.  Our belief has always been that if you can create your own work, you will never be out of work, which is why our Festival of Creativity is such a vital component of our annual calendar in May 2024.


Our Choreographic Competition, which forms part of this festival, provides our students with the opportunity to develop their unique skills as creative entrepreneurs


Designed to display the very best of the college's student choreographers, the competition showcases a diverse programme of choreography across a broad range of dance styles, including Musical Theatre, Contemporary, Tap, Jazz and Street Dance. 


And this year YOU can also be the judge. Apart from the wide range of awards adjudicated by a team of high-profile choreographers and industry professionals, we have added the People's Choice Award, which will allow you, the audience, to vote for your favourite routine.


Other award categories include:

Best Choreographer of a Solo, Trio/Quartet and Group in each genre; Best Novice Choreographer, Best Choreographer, Most Outstanding Male Dancer, Most Outstanding Female Dancer, Outstanding Overall Performance, and the Full House Award that considers full production elements i.e., Music, Casting, Choreography, Costume, and Staging.


Some of our past winners featured London-based Thalia Burt who made her West End Debut at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, was the Resident Choreographer and Director for the musical Cats and the Associate Choreographer for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat; Rushney Ferguson, a Fleur Du Cap Nominated Actress for her performance in David Kramer’s production, Langarm and Sonwabiso Sakuba, who toured in the international production of The Lion King in Spain and founded the Sonwa Sakuba Institute for the Performing Arts in East London.


Come and support our creatives of the future from 8-12 May at the Lane Theatre and celebrate the next generation of choreographers.

The Waterfront School is once again proud to present our annual One Act Play Festival. This unique event allows our future creative entrepreneurs to explore their ingenuity and delve into the exciting world of theatre-making. Six groups of mixed first to fourth year students have been chosen and have a week to select a one-act play, audition and cast the required actors, choose a technical crew and rehearse intensely. By the end of that week, the stage is set for our students to present the very best possible production of that play.


They will then perform their plays for 3 nights from 13 May-15 May. A panel of industry professionals will adjudicate the plays and provide feedback after the final performance.  Once again there will be an awards ceremony where our students can win a range of prizes for their work.


Award Categories include: Best Ensemble, Best Director, Best Performer in a Female Leading Role, Best Performer in a Male Leading Role, Best Performance in a Cameo Role, Best Production Design, Technical Excellence, Best Poster Design, and the Keith Galloway Award for Best Overall Production Trophy.
