Richard Murphy, a celebrated dancer and West End Theatrical Actor, spent the day at Huddersfield New College with their Performing Arts students.
Richard, who is employed by the West End Touring Company, has starred in some fantastic West End Productions including We Will Rock You, The bodyguard and Chicago, to name but a few!
Richard led the workshop, which was based around the ‘We Will Rock You’ musical, and taught the students the opening dance, Radio Gaga. As well as being taught the opening dance number, Richard worked with the students on several other scenes from his hit show, holding a question and answer session afterwards.
Catriona John, Dance Course Leader at New College, said “It was great to have Richard come to college to work through some dances and scenes with our students.
It’s so helpful and informative for our students to have someone from the industry to answer questions about life as a musical theatre performer, how to improve audition techniques and build on their performance skills”.
