Matthew Boulton
  ( Principal )
 
 
MBTA is the passion of Matthew Boulton. As an experienced and highly regarded West End performer Matthew, who in addition to his on stage career, is on the staff and selection panel for many of London's top performing arts colleges. Matthew came to the entertainment industry as a result of the teaching course at Northern Ballet School, graduating with four teaching certificates with the I.S.T.D. and the Royal Academy of Dance teaching certificate; he was the first male in the UK to be awarded this qualification.

After growing up as an aspiring performer, Matthew has since noted the lack of accessibility to workshops and classes given by West End professionals in the Midlands and North of the UK, and now seeks to bring that expertise to these areas. It is intended that these Masterclasses in musical theatre, jazz and ballet will be the beginning of what he hopes will become a permanent life line to high quality teaching and vital skills necessary to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
