West End stars lead dance workshops through Grantham Guildhall Arts Centre
Musical-lovers can join a series of online workshops led by West End professionals.
Organised by the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham, and Stamford Arts Centre, the workshops will be held via Zoom, so participants don’t even need to leave their house to get training from the best.
The first will be a dance workshop covering the popular new musical Six and will be led by Shekinah McFarlane on Wednesday at 6pm.
Shekinah played Anna of Cleves in the 2019-2020 tour of Six and was alternate for the same role as well as Catherine of Aragon in the West End production.
Grab your crown, be a Queen, and learn part of a sassy routine!

The second workshop lined up is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit musical Hamilton.
On Wednesday, July 22, at 6pm, Christopher Tendai will take you back to the 1800s to learn a section of movement in the style of the number 'My Shot'.
