Who is Working Where?
Dance and dance technique alone are not enough. Performers have to demonstrate they can dance, sing and act together in order to become a 'triple threat' performer.
Laine courses ensure you acquire the necessary skills to combine the disciplines and develop your skills as a ‘triple-threat performer' - that is, someone who can dance, sing and act and, more importantly, do all three at the same time!
Our talented students
Laine graduates have enjoyed success in all areas of the entertainment business, appearing in West End and touring musicals, as well as stage productions throughout the world.
Some graduates also diversify into straight theatre, including seasons with The Royal Shakespeare Company and The National Theatre.
Overseas, graduates are currently appearing in Germany's thriving musical theatre industry and also at Disneyland and Universal Studios in Japan. Additionally with the increased quality and number of production shows on board top Cruise Lines and in luxury hotels many graduates are working throughout Europe and the rest of the world. We are also very proud of our many graduates who achieve great successes in the music, film and television industries.
Past students include: Victoria Beckham, Sarah Hadland (Miranda, Moving Wallpaper, Horrible Histories), Kerry Ellis (Wicked, We Will Rock You, Oliver!), Ruthie Henshall (Chicago, Marguerite, Woman in White), Ben Richards (Footballers Wives, The Bill, Saturday Night Fever, Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Summer Strallen (Hollyoaks, The Sound of Music, Love Never Dies, Top Hat), Gerard McCarthy (Hollyoaks, The Globe Theatre), Hayley Tamaddon (Emmerdale, Dancing on Ice, Spamalot) and winners of the last two series of the BBC's ”So You Think You Can Dance“ - Charlie Bruce and Matt Flint.
Every student has their own timetable created to ensure they get the best possible classes to develop and improve their skills and creativity.
The College promotes a family atmosphere and the Principal, Betty Laine, gets to know every student by teaching and observing classes and workshops.
Our committed staff
The Faculty is made up of the best practitioners and teachers in the business who share a wealth of knowledge about the dance and musical theatre world. The very best teachers ensure the students get the most gratifying learning experience.

You will meet expert teachers in singing and acting and professional coaches still working in the West End who will teach you and give you the benefit of their experience.
