Does your child love to sing and spontaneously break out into song and dance? Do they love to act, dress up and create characters? This is the class for them!
In this Musical Theatre class a special emphasis is placed on singing and acting. With the guidance of a Broadway Pro, students will be introduced to a different Broadway musical or animated film each week and learn songs and scenes from these shows. They will learn to break down a song, understand what the song is about and begin to understand telling a story through song. They will also learn to break down scenes, develop original characters and even participate in writing and creating their own monologues and/or scenes. Broadway musicals and movies may include Hamilton, SpongeBob, Newsies, Moana, Frozen, Matilda, Finding Neverland, Mary Poppins, Aladdin, Annie, School of Rock, Charlie Brown, etc. They will also participate in theater games, learn improvisation, and may learn light choreography to go with their song and scenes. This is a must for any theatre lover, dancer or singer! A strong focus is placed on confidence building and allowing children to be fully self expressed in a safe, fun and supportive environment. The semester ends with a fun performance of the best moments from the class.
**PLEASE NOTE: We have live accompaniment in many classes. Your kids are working with a musician who plays, reads and teaches music in addition to their regular teacher.
**We periodically try to bring in special guests from a current Broadway show.
Students will learn a variety of music and scenes from Broadway shows and Animated films from a Broadway Pro!
