Seeing the industry in action in our buildings provides constant inspiration and an invaluable insight to our students.
Not only does Urdang feed the industry with talented performers but the industry calls upon our expertise and sought-after facilities to host rehearsals, professional auditions and castings such as:
‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Hairspray’, ‘Thriller’, ‘Priscilla’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Dirty Dancing’, ‘Billy Elliot’, ‘Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures’, ‘Sister Act’, ‘Les Miserables’, ‘Wicked’, ‘Oklahoma’, ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘ENO’, ‘X Factor’, ‘Flawless’, ‘Universal Studios’, ‘Disney’ and ITV’s South Bank Show. This is in addition to fashion shoots, TV productions and music videos, industry meetings and community events.
Notable performers who have used Urdang studios also include Jason Derulo, Florence Welch (of Florence and Machine), Ellie Goulding and Kylie.
These close relationships are enhanced by various top casting directors and creatives coming in to see our third year students on a regular basis thus enabling Urdang to gain valuable feedback for faculty and students alike.
"We get to train with industry tutors who might teach us jazz during the day then work doing Wicked or Matilda... It's amazing"
