Musical Theater Dance Classes
As part of our studio dance programming we offer musical theater style classes to our Petite, Junior and Teen age groups. Students work on different Broadway styles and eras of dance. They learn about different musicals and in a 2 1/2 minute dance piece try to convey the ideas and thoughts of the full musical. Traditional technique is tested while varying movement is adapted to create feeling and portray a story line. Students perform a piece at our Spring Recital & work on multiple styles & combinations of different eras throughout the year.
Voice & Piano Lessons
Our Voice and Piano lessons are offered in classes and private lessons. You can register for just voice or just piano or both! We offer these lessons at both our Skaneateles and Syracuse locations. We will take on students of any level and work with them to expand their knowledge. We teach our voice students to work with their body "instrument" to create the clearest sound possible without straining our voices. We want them to sing like themselves not the radio. Our piano lessons include various exercises to create a work ethic and study that will expand their ability.
Every June we put on a "summer stock" style youth musical. We have done such musicals as Annie, Jr, Mary Poppins, Jr, and Peter Pan Jr. Students receive audition materials and formally audition in May. Voice classes are offered prior to the start of June to help anyone with the songs in the show. Musical rehearsals run every day through the month of June. Students help with costuming, sets, and set design. They work on stage directions, projection, delivering lines, and timing. All leading up to the culmination of our 2 shows at the end of June. We have so much fun with this program and we are anxious for the show every year!
