A Celebration of Women in the Performing Arts Industry : Part 2

While it’s great to acknowledge the achievements of a small selection of iconic actors with years of experience in the musical theatre industry, we also wanted to pay tribute to a few of our own female alumni Jazzart superstars!

Mia Musak

Mia studied musical theatre at Jazzart between 2015 and 2017 before landing the role of Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty at Dundee’s Gardyne Theatre. Since graduating, she has gone on to perform in the musical version of The Steamie in The Hydro, landed a cruise ship contract in 2019 and most recently celebrating signing a year-long contract to appear in TINA the musical in London’s Aldwych Theatre! One of Mia’s highlights of being at Jazzart was the strong friendships and connections that are made whilst studying.

Ainsley Stenhouse
Ainsley trained for 2 years at Jazzart where she specialised in musical theatre. After graduating she landed the role of Dorothy in The National Tour of The Wizard of Oz which she credits to the professional experience she gained throughout her training.

Fiona McCallum

Fiona studied professional dance for 2 years at Jazzart. Her proudest moment to date is turning up to her first audition and successfully being hired onto the contract 5 days later! At the moment, Fiona is currently part of the dancer cast of the show ‘Mickey at the Magician’ in Disneyland Paris!

Katie MacFarlane

After being part of the part time school for 15 years, Katie studied an HND professional dance performance course for 2 years. Some of Katie’s highlights from being at Jazzart are performing in every annual school show, the amazing tuition from both tutors and guest tutors, then going on to teach and guide the younger students.
