Musical Theater 1

Wednesdays, 4:15-5:00pm (Elementary)

This class, co-taught by director Pam Kinter and choreographer Amy Shope, develops the skills necessary for students to excel onstage. Weekly classes will see how the components of musical theater - acting, dance, and music - work together to create fun characters and plots. Sutdents will work on character development, voice projection, strength and coordination, and learning how to sing and dance at the same time. Some classes will be focused on improvisation to help students build their imaginations and creativity. All students will perform in the June Cabaret.
