Musical Theatre Classes:

IMG_4519_edited.png

Preschool

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 6-9

Our Advanced Musical Theatre class is offered for students in Grades 6-9. 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. 

Kindergarten

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.

Grades 5-8

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.

Grades 9-12

Our High School class meets once a week for 90-minutes. Advanced technical training and theatrical skills will be taught while at the same time, keeping with our recreational philosophy. In addition to training in voice, dance and acting, students will learn the technical aspects of theatre including casting, directing and design. This class focuses on more individualized attention, helping students enhance and execute skills that will help them in the future, not only with their theatrical activities but also in building their self-confidence and a comfort level in public speaking and presentation. Each semester will conclude with a showcase.

Adult

Specialty Classes:

Acting Out

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.

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.
