MUSICAL THEATER

Musical Theatre class works on the three elements of musical theatre: dancing, acting, and singing. In this class, students take 3-4 weeks to learn the plot, lyrics, choreography, and character development from part of a Broadway show (for example: "Seize The Day" from Newsies). Vocalization will not be taught, but the class emphasizes the importance of singing lyrics and playing a character while dancing.This class is great for getting kiddos stage ready for plays and musicals. Musical theatre choreography is mainly based in jazz and ballet techniques. This is a very fun class where students can expand their creativity, imagination, and step out of their comfort zone.
