seniors for 14+
The Seniors class aims to carry on the further development of musical theatre skills through more advanced dance, singing and acting training and masterclasses to build ‘triple threat’ performers.
For students who have been attending a SHOWTIME
course. Outside students are welcome, although it is required they have a good level of performing arts skills to ensure that classes are at a high standard.
The Core elements of our classes:
Drama: Developing students creativity and confidence through role play.
Using drama games, character work, storytelling, scene study, improvisation, stage technique, voice and speech training will help them gain confidence in performing in front of an audience.
Dance: warm-up routines, Physical skills, coordination and rhythm are developed with fun and challenging exercises. Contemporary dance routines (Jazz, Street Dance, Hip-Hop,etc…) are explored alongside musical theatre favorites, to give young people a broad experience of different dance styles.
Singing: Warm-up and training of the voice, projection and breathing.
Working on presentation of a song, choral singing, solo singing, singing technique whilst learning popular musical numbers and contemporary songs, improving ability and confidence.
The course is devoted to staging a musical whereby the first term is a „creative term“ where students will work on a great variety of styles and techniques in acting, dancing and singing. Especially in improvisation they will be able to stretch their imagination and develop artistically.
The second term concentrates on rehearsals and requires the students to attend all sessions. While creating the roles leaves space for individual creativity and development, learning the choreography and the songs will demand discipline and devotion from every individual towards the common project. The production will be presented for parents and friends at the end of the term on stage at Vienna’s English Theatre where the students will be able to enjoy their well deserved applause.
