Program Description

This class will focus on building your Musical Theatre skills. Students will receive training in singing and dancing. Vocal training will focus on developing the voice with care and attention to vocal health. There will be a focus on breath support, resonance, physical relaxation and alignment, and the development of high and low registers. Students will connect to their natural voice and open the way for freedom and expression. Students will also learn to select appropriate material for their voice and range. They will be able to give accompanists the appropriate tempo and cuts on auditions and know how to communicate with the pianist at an audition.

Dance training will focus on preparing the body for movement/dance through warm-ups and self-care. Students will connect with their bodies and develop a technique that will allow them to be more physically expressive. Coordination, spatial awareness, rhythm and expression will be taught through an exposure through various theater dance forms.
