High School Repertory
(voice, dance, acting or piano)
Take A Bow students are taught the art of
musical theatre in a fun-filled environment where they learn to express themselves, build self-confidence and develop new friendships.
Musical Theatre Classes:
For our youngest students, ages 3-4, we use recreational games and activities to help each child learn basic performance techniques. Students meet once a week for 60-minutes. The students work towards an end-of-session recital (January and June) which includes singing, dancing and short scenes, allowing them to “get their feet wet” and experience the joy of performing on stage in an informal, nurturing setting. Friends and family are invited. Students must be toilet trained.
Grades 1 - 4
For students in grades 1-4, the emphasis of our classes is on the development of performance techniques and group interaction. The students learn to coordinate their singing, acting and dancing to create an end-of-year musical performance in June for the enjoyment of family and friends. At the halfway point in January, a visiting day “recital” will be held showcasing the songs and dances being prepared for the June performance. The classes are generally 2-hours in duration and encompass a rotation of 40-minutes each of voice, dance and acting!
Advanced Musical Theatre Grades 6-8
Our Advanced Musical Theatre class is offered for students in Grades 6-8. This class meets once a week for 2-hours. This class will continue to nurture the recreational philosophy of our program but will operate at a faster pace with more complex material, following the same format of our regular Grade 5-8 classes. During the first semester, each student will create a unique "audition book" with material that can be used for future auditions. Students who choose to join this class must be willing to put in the extra time for the curriculum that will be followed. It is required that you take at least one year of our general Gr 5-8 theatre class before joining this class.
Summer College Production
Find out what it's like to work as a professional actor! The rehearsal process is crafted to emulate the professional rehearsal space. Performers are challenged with advanced acting activities along with deep character exploration to develop emotional depth during performance. This allows young actors a chance to share and develop their "personal process" as a performer. Join our mailing list for updates on future productions.
Children in Kindergarten meet once a week for
90-minutes. Each semester (January and June) they prepare a mini production incorporating singing, acting and dancing. We slowly introduce them to what it's like to perform in a musical theatre production with costumes and props, while also using theatrical games to make learning fun. The students enjoy showcasing their accomplishments for their friends and family.
Our Middle School classes meet once a week for 2-hours. Our Fall semester focuses on teaching the fundamentals of musical theatre culminating in an end of semester showcase. The Spring semester is devoted to the preparation of a full musical production. In this class, students focus more on technique and work in a more challenging environment, yet still enjoy the no-pressure, recreational atmosphere of the program.
High School Repertory
Our High School Repertory class meets once a week for 2-hours. Advanced training will be taught in voice, dance and acting, but students will also learn the technical aspects of theatre including directing and design. Guided by our skilled teachers, students will have influence over the final show through the process of Devised Theatre while working alongside their peers to create a unique production.
Our adult class includes a 90-minute combination of singing, acting and dancing in a social, non-competitive environment, culminating in a showcase performance for family and friends. This class runs on demand. Please contact Take A Bow if you are interested.
Take A Bow offers private voice, dance, acting and piano lessons for all ages. Students will work one-on-one with our teaching staff to develop proper techniques and skills during a weekly lesson.
Lesson Rates: $60/half hour; $120/hour
*Private Lesson Packages are available. Ask for details.
Our playwriting workshop is offered various times throughout the semester. Students will work collaboratively, with guidance from an instructor, to curate an original work. In addition, they will have the opportunity to experiment with directing, props, costumes and lighting when they share their work with the class! A presentation of their completed works will be held at the end of each session.
Musical Theatre Dance
Musical theatre dance classes offered in jazz and tap for students in grades 1+. Students will be be placed in a beginner or intermediate level class (a trial period may be required) that will help them improve their dance skills and technique in addition to growing more confident in their physicality and stage presence. Parents will be invited to the final class for a showcase. Students must provide their own shoes.
One-on-one coaching sessions are available to assist in the submission and preparation for auditions.
Session Rates: $60/half hour; $120/hour
Times are flexible
Our 'Acting Out' class will work on various acting techniques including improvisation, character development, Shakespeare, commercials, voice-overs and playwriting. A showcase will take place at the end of each semester.
Virtual classes focusing on musical theatre.
Children will have fun enhancing their skills and technique through a variety of exercises and games. Options include workshops dedicated to voice and acting as well as combination musical theatre class. Virtual classes will be offered if necessary.
The staff of Take A Bow is committed to providing an exceptional theatrical experience for our students.
