It’s MGA’s Edinburgh this summer…

The MGA Academy of Performing Arts are taking the streets of Edinburgh by storm this month after a fabulous end to the year and a busy July.

We had an amazing two weeks with our ‘Stage to Screen’ Summer School, welcoming lots of talented young people to MGA to work with a wonderful team of visiting tutors – huge thanks to coordinator Jennifer Tierney and Cameron MacDonald, Derek McGhie, Alison Cleland, Rob Shaw, Lauren Ellis Steele and our own Gerard Bentall for making it such a fantastic fortnight. And a fantastic bunch of lads joined MGA Creative Director Murray Grant and team, working with special guest tutors Sebastian Hardcombe, Fergal McGoff and Arthur Gourounlian on our first-ever Boys Scholarship Week.

#MyEdinburgh

As we are now Scotland’s first Council for Dance & Drama Education and Training (CDET) accredited college, some of our students thought the news was worth dancing about and headed out across our beautiful city of Edinburgh to celebrate! Here’s how our Dance students welcome the summer with style! Special thanks to Tower Restaurant, The City of Edinburgh Council, National Museum of Scotland and Nexus Digital Media Limited for producing.
