Musical Theater

Musical Theater is a form of art performance that includes song, dance, and acting. Musical Theater allows performers to share exciting stories by combining all-around artistic talent and collaboration. Whether you have experience in singing, acting, dancing, or no experience at all you can still learn and enjoy the experience of Musical Theater. In learning Musical Theater, many students gain a new sense of self-confidence, as they explore a wide range of roles and talents that teach you not only about musical performance but about your own identity too. Musical Theater invites collaboration from all kinds and levels of performers to come together, trust and challenge one another and put forth the performance of a lifetime.

Audition

Auditions are tryout-like interviews in which a sample performance is given by an individual in hopes of being selected for a certain role or job. All professional performers, singers, actors, dancers, and musicians typically must participate in auditions to further their goals and careers. As a performer, it is important to understand what goes on in auditions and what one can do to stand out and prove their talents to attain the role or job one wishes for. Preparing for auditions improves performers’ chances of succeeding in their chosen field of performance and improves many real-life skills such as professionalism, confidence, and public speaking, all of which carry out in other professions as well.

Dance

Dance is a form of expression which allows individuals to communicate emotions, stories, and energy through rhythmic body movement. There are many different styles of dance including hip-hop, tap, jazz, lyrical, and ballet. Dancers benefit from all of these styles both physically and emotionally. Physically, dance is a form of exercise that challenges the body through stamina, flexibility, and rhythm. Emotionally, dance provides a fun outlet for many to express themselves in ways that words cannot while building connections with others and exploring the passionate art of performance.

Acting

Acting is a form of storytelling performance in which actors and actresses assume and portray a certain role or character through expression, intonation, movement, and gesture. Actors and Actresses today have the opportunity to achieve and portray roles in many different mediums such as theater, television, film, and radio. Learning to act has many benefits for all ages and experiences. Acting is proven to improve one’s public speaking skills, teamwork, confidence, and professionalism. Through acting, many find new talents and passions within themselves while having fun and exploring various characters.

On Camera

Regardless of one’s chosen field of performance, it is likely that one will have to understand and master the art of being on camera. These days many performance mediums such as television, film, print, and social media all require performances to be delivered on camera. There are many different aspects to on-camera work, including content creation, performance, audition, production, and marketing. Learning and mastering these aspects provide individuals with various important skills that allow performers to further their careers and personal aspirations.

Music

Music is a combination of melody, rhythm, and harmony. These three elements take many forms in vocal and instrumental mediums. Whether one prefers classical, folk, rock, hip-hop, electronic, pop, jazz, country, or any of the other many styles of music, there is something music can provide for everyone. Research shows many benefits that music can have on one’s health and life including stress reduction, mood elevation, memory stimulation, and better overall physical health. Explore the world of music and experience positive change in a creative and exciting environment.
