There will be two tracts during this class period with multiple teachers added to teaching this session. Both the Musical Theatre Troupe Tract and the Broadway Bound Tract will touch on the activities below with BB having a stronger emphasis on Dance. Students will audition the first week of classes to determine which tract will be best for their training. Students will have the opportunity to switch back and forth between tracts at various times of the year. Students in this class will have the opportunity to be included in the cast of Shakespeare's TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA, (October) the musical SPACE PIRATES (Jan-Feb), and LOVIN' ME SOME COUNTRY (March) Musical theatre is a form of performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. Acting is a great outlet for creativity. But what really stretches one’s’ creative muscles is acting combined with singing and dancing.. Musical theater training will not guarantee your child to develop incredible singing skills, but it does give a level of technical awareness when singing.Confidence is all about getting out of your comfort zone. And musical theater training does just that. Musical theater training includes voice training. That doesn’t necessarily mean your child will develop professional singing skills, but it does mean that they will learn how to use their voice better. Musical theatre obviously combines song and dance, so dance training is a must. Mastering stage movement is super important for actors. Musical theater training not only gives your child musical stamina but physical coordination that’s so useful on stage as well. Actors of all ages must have a certain awareness of their bodies and be able to move freely.Musical theater training provides a creative outlet that can’t be beat. It teaches kids not only useful techniques and skills, but encourages them to grow, get out of their shell, and make new friends.
