The Musical Theatre Two class is an extension of Musical Theatre One for ages 10-14. This class also encompasses Broadway style dance in both tap and jazz, vocal preparation and acting techniques at a more challenging level. Students will study monologue, scene work and higher level improvisational scenarios than Musical Theatre One. Vocal scales are practiced and students will work on singing roles from various Broadway shows. Dance warm-ups, across the floor technique, and more advanced choreography will be studied in this class. Students will be prepped to audition for leading roles in upcoming showcases. All pieces for the showcases will contain singing, dancing and character work. They will use these skills and experiences to prepare themselves to audition for theaters in the community and to create confidence and poise when pursuing roles in a theatrical production. Please bring your own black tap shoes.
