The program helps students who want to obtain very strong skills in theatrical dance, singing and acting. It also provides social and personal development in leadership, public speaking, confidence and teamwork.
Throughout the year we provide a solid mix of technique training and the opportunity to use that training up on stage.
The program is age-appropriate in terms of content and ability, with stage performance pieces and theatrical shows being an exciting challenge for the students to undertake.
In class, the students work in a mix of solo, small group and large group throughout the year as they train in their core theatrical skills. They also learn stagecraft which provides insight and experience in pulling a show together from planning through to rehearsing and performing.
Students at all levels are provided these performance opportunities and as they develop through the program, the opportunities become more frequent and of a higher production level.
We also have our own theatre in the adjacent building so students are able to easily take their training from the dance studio and rehearse within the theatre.
This is particularly important for confidence in the space they will perform in, as well as providing a unique and exciting opportunity for those students who have an interest in studying stagecraft.
