Photo Flash: The Palace Theatre's Triple Threat Performer Intensive Brings Broadway To Stamford For Local Youth

Under the inspiring direction of Luis Salgado, assistant choreographer of the Tony Award-winning In the Heights on Broadway and choreographer for Nickelodeon, students in The Palace Theatre's Triple Threat Performer Intensive immersed themselves in the exciting process of acting, singing and dancing. Designed to encompass the diverse components of musical theatre, the intensive focused on the making of art with a purpose as part of The Palace's Arts Education program.

Classes were led by Salgado and a select group of experienced New York artists from his renowned company, Salgado Productions. Students engaged in master classes exploring the disciplines of acting, singing, and dancing (musical theatre, body percussion, drumming, hip-hop, Latin fusion and more). At the end of the transformative intensive, students came away with a deeper understanding of how to successfully integrate song, dance, and character interpretation within a musical theatre piece, using all tools to support their journey as an actor to communicate their character's central truth.

The Palace's Arts in Education programs are held year round and strive to Inspire, Challenge and Engage through the arts area youth by offering opportunities in performing, choreography, playwriting, master classes and intensives in circus arts, acting, voice and dance. Students learn skills that are important in academic and life success such as confidence, problem-solving, teamwork, perseverance and focus.
