PAUL AIKINS Masterclass Series Director 2011-2019
Paul Aikins was the Founder & Creative Director for The Master Class Series, presenting Music Theatre triple-threat and Dance intensives in Toronto. Paul was also our close friend and colleague. Paul was a dedicated teacher, mentor and lover of the performing arts – he was passionate about his students, and was so proud to see them succeed in the world of singing, dancing and acting. Paul advocated for his students to find a place to further their training. In 2011, Paul launched the Masterclass Series to inspire young performers to develop their skills to become triple threat performers. Paul believed all three disciplines, singing, dancing and acting were of equal value and ensured his students received training in all three disciplines. Paul Aikins performed for many years on the musical theatre stages at the Stratford Festival, Toronto and London's West End. Paul Aikins legacy lives on as we begin again with Masterclass Series 2022!
