Learn How to Sing, Act, & Dance!
Musical Theatre Classes
Starting this fall, the musical theatre program will offer two exciting classes – our Broadway Training Program and our Elite Broadway Production Program!
Both the Broadway Training Program and the Elite Broadway Production Program offer a fantastic opportunity for those interested in musical theatre and wish to improve their triple threat performance skills. These programs are also an incredible way to build confidence, develop team building skills, and discover a new hobby! Students will be able to create lasting friendships with their classmates as they learn and grow as performers.
Broadway Training Program (Ages 7-18)
$28/1 hr class
Tuesdays 4:30pm @ Beach United Church
The Broadway Training Program combines students ages 7-18 and offers extensive instruction in singing, acting, and dancing! Students will be taught through specialized workshops such as theatre technique and audition preparation. All of our participant’s hard work will culminate in an optional performance number in both our winter and spring music recitals.
What will students learn?
Singing techniques (i.e diction, projection & range), song interpretation, music literacy, various dance styles (ie. jazz & musical theatre), improvisation, clowning, monologues, character development, storytelling, audition technique and book development.
Though each class will be as unique as our performers, every week will begin with a warm up – a combination of vocal exercises, drama games, and movement activities, followed by a section of instruction in drama, music, dance, and audition technique led by our world-class teachers Catarina Ciccone and Colin Frotten.
Throughout the program, participants will have the opportunity to work on their own, in small groups, and as an ensemble. Due to our small class sizes, each student will receive individual attention from our top-notch instructors. This will allow our emerging stars to discover their individual strengths and style as they develop their performance skills and create their own characters!
Elite Broadway Production Program (Ages 9-18)
Tuesdays 5:45-7:15pm @ Beach United Church
The Elite Broadway Production Program is only available to our Broadway Training students wishing to specialize in musical theatre performance. Students will use technical foundations provided in the Broadway Training program with a focus on mounting two high calibre productions:
1: A Broadway Cabaret in late fall (Sept – December semester)
2. A Spring Musical (January – June semester)
Each semester, students will take part in a no stress audition in order to place them in a role that will best showcase their talents. Students will be taught audition material in class and will have ample time to become familiar with it. Auditions are a great way to put your performance skills to use and we can’t wait for our students to see how fun and rewarding they can be!
After taking part in our Broadway Training Class, Elite Broadway Production students will take a quick break before hitting the ground running, learning group performance numbers for our fall (Sept-Dec) Broadway Cabaret or our winter (Jan-June) musical. These will be exciting and dynamic numbers that will feature each student.
Our students will audition for solo and small ensemble numbers in the first semester and show specific roles in the second semester. Remember, our auditions are no stress environments! Students will be given all of the tools they need to succeed!
With casting complete, rehearsals will be in full swing! Students will learn choreography, music, and staging as well as proper show etiquette. All of this fun and hard work will culminate in our end of semester performances! We can’t wait to see you there!
