Class Descriptions

Musical Theatre Classes

Musical Theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines song, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical are communicated through words, music, movement, and acting. The class will teach all of these elements thru learning performance material that will prepare them to be in a musical in our upcoming shows. They will also learn back stage etiquette and stage performance. Wear comfortable clothing to move in, and closed-toed shoes (such as tennis shoes or jazz shoes–no flip flops or sandals.)

Improvisation Classes, Jr. & Sr. (ages 7-18)

Forgetting a line in a song or monologue can be scary. This class will provide a fun and unintimidating way to get those creative juices flowing when off-script. This class will also teach actors how to build a character and remain in character while on stage. You may need to bring a tissue box to this class. This class is guaranteed to bring tears of laughter to your eyes. Stage confidence and etiquette are also taught in this class.

Musical Theatre Dance

We teach dance with musical theatre in mind, so we cover combos centered around all styles such as Jazz, Lyrical, Tap and Hip Hop. Wear comfortable clothing to move in, and appropriate dance shoes (no flip flops or sandals.)

Vocal Performance

Led by a Vocal Coach, this glee-style class will perform selected songs as a group. Students will learn to receive and give professional, constructive criticism. This will allow a place for students to perform and gather repertoire as well as audition experience.

Character Development
Are you an Anna, Elsa, Gaston, Mad Hatter, Harry or Hermoine in training? In this class, students will develop their character by exploring physical, vocal and emotional aspects that build believable and memorable characters for the stage & beyond. Students will learn how to portray their characters in the most authentic way possible, and how to maintain their characterization in an improvisational format. Throughout the year, this class may provide entertainment for character meet & greets, singalongs and themed parties!
