ABOUT THE MASTERCLASSES
Improvisation + Voice & Movement: In this class, artists will explore the foundational tools of performance: voice and movement. We will explore how these tools help us create characters and bring stories to life. Through collaborative, group exercises, and individual work, artists will develop skills that can be used on stage, on film, in auditions, and even in job interviews!
Broadway Dance Styles: Dance offers an experience for artists to gain body awareness and control through learning choreography and exploring creative movement. Through this class, they will grow in confidence, poise, and self-expression. Taught by a Broadway performer, this class will feature choreography from a current Broadway production! We will warm-up, refine some dance skills, then learn a combination directly from the Broadway stage.
Acting: This class, taught by a leader in the acting industry, will teach artists how to approach songs and monologues as an actor first. As musical theatre performers, we are always telling a story. But how? In this session, artists will learn how to connect to material, to develop characters, and to give authentic performances.
Song/Monologue Performance: As we near the end of the week, we will start to stitch all of our skills together in this performance class. Each artist will have a chance to present either a song or a monologue and will receive direct feedback from a professional teaching artist on finetuning their work. Artists will begin to understand how to present themselves for auditions and performances to best represent their abilities.
Broadway Bootcamp: In our final day together, we will learn an entire Broadway production number in just ninety minutes! Layering in everything you have learned from the week, we will put it all together in this final day of singing, dancing, storytelling, and collaboration. Led by an actor straight from Broadway, this class will make you feel like you are in the rehearsal room for a Broadway musical.
On Friday, 7/24 (Session 1) and Saturday, 7/25 (Session 2), intensive artists will be given the option of performing a solo song, dance, poem, etc during our solo concert. The concert will take place prior to the streaming of Fantastical Family Night as a pre-show performance. We will make sure you have everything you need for your virtual performance (accompaniment tracks, etc). Solos can be any style of music, but must not be longer than 3:30 minutes in length and must not have any inappropriate lyrics. You will have an opportunity to rehearse your solo performance during your individual coaching.
