The Academy's musical theatre workshops teach middle and high school students how to improve their audition and performance technique. Classes each day will cover good singing technique, healthy belting, picking songs, acting the story of the song, bringing the song to life, research tools, knowing your type, and musical theatre movement/dance. Students will have group classes as well as individual coaching and will be guided to prepare for the workshop in advance. The week culminates with a showcase on Friday afternoon that is free and open to the public. Enrollment is limited to 20 students per level.
In session called Masterclass, each student will receive individual coaching on a solo that can be included, if they desire, as part of the Friday showcase. To help prepare a varied program that shows each student at their best, we ask students to submit videos of themselves performing segments of two contrasting musical theatre selections before camp begins. Once we have the videos, our camp staff will choose which song they will work on during Masterclass. (Alternatively, students who do not have access to record a video may sing live for our camp director.) Further instruction on song selection and video submissions will be sent out upon registration.
