Junior Musical Theatre

Musical Theatre is a unique genre that combines dance, drama and singing. In this class, students will learn all three disciplines, as well as crucially learning the skill of integrating them for performance. 

Classes will consist roughly of twenty minutes singing/ acting performance and forty minutes of dance. In the first twenty minutes they will learn how to sing, perform a song and engage with an audience. In the last forty minutes they will learn the basic foundations of dance up to intermediate level and will also learn challenging and exciting choreography. Dance and movement training will improve the students co-ordination, agility stamina and musical memory. 

The class will work towards an in house performance at Christmas and also stage a musical performance piece as a showcase for the end of the year show. We also encourage class participation in the Irish Board Musical Theatre Group Exams. 

 

This class is ideal for all those budding Broadway stars! Students will be given the opportunity for their imagination, talent and flair for performance to grow and improve. They will gain knowledge and experience that will stand to them in every performance field.
