Christopher Tendai Workshop for Senior Musical Theatre Class

Our senior musical theatre class are working on a Hamilton medley for our end of term performance and tonight, to aid our performance of 'York Town', we welcome Christopher Tendai to our teaching team. What a wonderful opportunity for our students! We are so excited to see what magic he can bring to our performance...

Christopher Tendai is a choreographer and West End performer, and he is currently in Matilda: The Musical. He runs his own dance company called CTC Company, and has a wealth of experience in both Musical Theatre and Commercial.  In 2011, Tendai attended the prestigious Urdang Academy, and graduated in 2014 with a BA Honours Degree in Professional Dance and Musical Theatre.  Among his theatre credits is performing in In the Willows at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Hamilton in the West End, Jesus Christ Superstar at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and In the Heights at the King’s Cross Theatre.
On the screen, he appeared as a Dancer in ITV’s Brit Awards, BBC’s The Greatest Dancer, The Feeling, London Olympics, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Fleur East at the Wimbledon Stadium and BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing.
He has choreographed for various shows on famous venues; Identity for Young Actors Theatre, Hamilton Cast at Westend Eurovision, the UK Tour of Union J, and the Piano Legends National Tour.


Lucy has been attending Centre Stage since the age of 4.  I can’t thank the teachers and staff enough for all they instill in our kids; the talent, confidence & camaraderie inside those doors are so important, and it's a privilege for any child to be part of, and something which they’ll carry with them through life.

My daughter Aoibhe Lilly has attended Centre Stage for the past 5 years. The overall experience has been phenomenal. She has always enjoyed the high standard of classes on offer. Centre Stage offers a caring, nurturing environment, where love of arts is encouraged, in a place where children can dance, act, sing, laugh and have fun, making lifelong friends and memories. In Aoibhes own words 'It's my happy place'!

My daughter has been attending Centre Stage School for 4 years. She started with Theatre Tots and moved on ward from there. The musical theatre classes have been instrumental in the development of her self-confidence, as well as her great love for music and dance. The teachers and staff include and encourage all children of all abilities, and each child has a chance to shine. I couldn’t recommend Centre Stage School highly enough. Thank you to everyone there for the amazing work you do!
