A second workshop, aimed at those aged 9–13 is named 'Learn a routine from a show' and will last two hours. Spaces cost £15 for Curtain Call students and £20 for non students.

The workshops will be hosted by Paul Chantry, who has choreographed work for Sadler’s Wells, Les Enfants Terrible and The Merry Opera Company among numerous other shows.
