Get show ready for Legally Blonde with Zoe Rogers, cast member of 42nd Street London 2017-2019.

Completing a 7 show week requires stamina both mentally and physically. In a Workshop with Zoe Rogers you will learn the importance of fitness in performing and the skills you need to improve your endurance when singing, dancing and acting. Do not fear, this will not just be 2 hours of sweating! It will be a lot of fun and you will come away from the session with a number of key exercises to practice over the summer and during the Legally Blonde rehearsal period. There will also be a Q&A with Zoe as part of the Workshop.
