Musical Theatre
training class will teach students to approach solos as monologues in which they happen to be singing.  They will learn how to allow the music itself to feed their characters’ emotional life, and how to give equal value to both the lyric and the melody as a means of helping them achieve their characters’ dreams. Working with duets will be an extension of this program, allowing students the joy of exploring songs as scenes rather than just two people taking turns singing.

Acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances. Working from the foundation of that description the student will be engaged in an approach that is non-intellectual and focused on their learning how to work from their natural instincts, imagination and heart. Students will be engaged to help them cultivate stillness, body, breath and good vocal awareness, and imaginative freedom.
