Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humour, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement as an integrated whole.
In class, students will work together in duets, trios and ensembles. Students will work on vocals and dance to learn how to incorporate them together. Lessons will include physical warm up, working on breath support, range, injury prevention, and vocal health. Intrapersonal relationships between characters and character analysis will be explored while learning the songs.

As a music instructor, she believes in fostering an understanding of a musical piece as a whole through technical and emotional development. She will work with her students to ensure that they provide an engaging, well-rounded, and fun performance for both themselves and their audience. We’ll find what makes them shine!
