Masterclass: Jaye Elster
Jaye Elster has a vast amount of experience in the musical theatre industry both as a performer and choreographer. Most recently Jaye has been working on the touring production of Singing In The Rain which toured the UK, Japan and Canada.
Jaye has worked with leading Directors and Choreographers in the industry, has been a Dance Captain on various West End productions and now is a leading Associate Choreographer.
Jaye worked with the current 3rd yr students at our Essex campus and delivered a bespoke, high-energy masterclass designed to offer the students an insight into a real musical theatre audition process. This masterclass was tailored to allow the students to grow and develop from the experience with tailored individual feedback for all which is essential moving forward through their graduating year.
Current 3rd year BA (Hons) Musical Theatre and Dance student Emily Bennett had this to say about her masterclass with Jaye;
“I absolutely loved Jaye’s masterclass! Jaye created such a positive and inspiring atmosphere in the room and gave so much feedback to us all as a group and personally – which is so useful to receive from an external choreographer and industry professional. Jaye really encouraged us to delve into the character and performance aspect of the choreography which really impacted on how I executed the choreography; it was such a huge insight into the musical theatre world!”
