Our musical theatre program is unique in that in addition to providing top quality dance instruction, we specifically teach Broadway Tap, not just box steps and jazz hands.
Also, our musical theatre classes have a voice teacher from our music school teach the vocal component every week.
This means that the students are all taught proper vocal technique by a teacher with a university degree in voice and are not just singing along with the song and orginial singer.
The third component is an actual acting class where theatre students learn character development, memorizing lines, stage directions and more!
Practices take place in our on-site theatre during class!
Your child will sing, dance, tap, and act not only in the classroom but in various performances at our in-house theatre and a year-end dance recital in all three unique theatre programs.
Theatre students perform in a Jr. Musical in Dec and May as well as a stage dance in our June Dance Recital.
All instruction and show rehearshals take place in their regular class time.
Everything you need to know about designing shows.
Headshots, designing props, making sets, writing bios, acting, singing, broadway tap & jazz, musical reviews, one-acts and variety shows are just some of the amazing experiences your child will have in one of our full-service Musical Theatre programs.
