Our broadway dance classes combine singing, acting and movement into an exciting, high-energy class. As a result we expose students to many different styles of musical theatre throughout the year. This class, consequently, offers students the opportunity to sing and move to their favorite broadway songs as well as participate in acting activities.
First of all, each week broadway classes start with physical warm-ups to energize and vocal warm-ups to explore vocal technique. After the warm-ups, students learn choreography and lyrics to songs from famous broadway musicals.
Following the musical theatre piece, students, as a result, have the opportunity to explore the many styles of acting through activities such as improvisation, pantomime and scripted scenes. We certainly direct focus towards creating a character and improving stage presence.
