For students in grades K-1, this class serves as a fun, energetic, and creative introduction to acting, singing and dancing. Children’s Musical Theater is a great class for students who love being the center of attention as well as for those that would like to become more comfortable performing or speaking in front of others. No previous training is required. This is a performance-oriented class with regular attendance required.
For students in grades 2-4, Musical Theater I explores and reinforces acting, singing and dancing techniques and styles. More involved performance pieces and materials are introduced.
Musical Theater II for grades 5-7 builds on the skills learned in both Children’s Musical Theater and Musical Theater I, with great emphasis placed on preparation of material, performance skills and stage presence.
Musical Theater III for grades 8-12 builds and expands vocal, acting and movement skills. Students present songs and scenes in class and learn techniques for both speaking and singing in character. Musical theater history and legends of the Broadway stage are also explored. Regular attendance and commitment to learning more advanced material is required.
