Classes to suit every child
Drama and Musical Theatre - 60 mins
This is a mixed subject class that covers drama and musical theatre. This class is for the student who loves to sing and act. Here students learn songs from Broadway and take part in drama scenes and games. Each class starts with a vocal warm us and progresses onto singing and drama. Students are taught the song lyrics and music, including harmony and solos. Then, depending on the song, the number is either staged or choreographed. Students work on drama plays and are involved in the creative writing of some of their own drama pieces also. The teacher works with the students to help them understand and interpret these songs and pieces so they learn to tell the story that's within each song and drama piece. From the basic elements of pantomime and role playing to character development and scene study, students are introduced to the fun and work involved in theater. The drama department strives to build good artists while teaching students to work together and think creatively. A MUST for the student striving to be a Triple Threat!
Ballet Class- 60 minutes
For younger/ beginner children these classes will introduce students to basic ballet vocabulary and technique in a structured yet fun setting. Simple coordination, musicality, rhythm and concentration will be emphasized. Students are encouraged to explore space and enjoy dancing. As children get older and become more experienced these classes cover the fundamentals of classical ballet technique. It is a more formal setting that will give students the discipline to mature as dancers. The importance of strength, flexibility, rhythm, musicality, and memorization will be stressed.
Dance Class- 60 minutes
This is a combination of theatre dance and dance class. Theatre Dance is a compilation of the different dance styles seen on Broadway. Due to the wide diversity of dance in musicals students cover a number of styles of dance depending on what piece they are working in their class from hip hop to theatre jazz there is something for everyone. The students also cover modern day artists in popular chart music. We also incorporate the dances of different eras, such as the Charleston from the 1920s, the Lindy from the 1950s and more. This class is a true dance class with a warm-up at the barre and in the center, followed by across the floor and a dance combination. This class builds an excellent repartee for students who are looking for a fun dance class or for students who wish to pursue dance as a career.
