Musical Theatre Dance and Voice Intensive: An Audition Prep Class (Grades 5-7 & 8-12)

This is the perfect class to help you prepare for your next auditions!

Vocal Music portion is a 90-minute class where students will learn to sing in varying musical theatre styles and focus on how to act the song.  Assistance will be given in choosing audition song selections and preparing cut versions of songs.  Emphasis will be on delivering a musical theatre sound via healthy vocal technique.  Beginning to Intermediate level class.

Dance portion is a 90-minute class that presents the students with the fun and various styles of authentic Broadway Theatre dance.  Dancers learn the basics of technique and alignment through ballet and jazz based warm-ups and also get to practice the specifics of context and setting for each week’s combination.  How many times have you heard at an audition “…now act it!”?  Learn how to hone in your ability to act and dance because that is what will get you noticed. Beginning to Intermediate level class.  Jazz/character shoes suggested.
