Welcome to the Hop!

April 27-June 8, 2013

Saturdays
9:00am-10:10am in our Large Rehearsal Room

This dance class focuses on Broadway and popular dance from the 1950s and 60s. It will teach you the original Broadway choreography from some of your favorite period musicals like Hairspray, Grease, and you guessed it, BYE, BYE BIRDIE !!!! It's a great transition for someone with dance experience into the world of musical theatre and will be great preparation for our summer productions too!

Jazz/Funk for Musical Theatre (by permission)

April 27-June 8, 2013

Saturdays
10:15am-11:25am in our Large Rehearsal room

The mix between popular dance and Broadway may have started in the 1950s, but it continues right up through today with blockbuster musicals like In The Heights. But when The Wiz first came to town in the late 1970s, Broadway was blown away by that new style. Using a combination of musical theatre, jazz, funk and hip hop dance, this class will help actors develop rhythm, isolation and a new way of moving. It's also great preparation for our summer shows.

Introduction to Acting for act 2

April 29-June 17, 2013
No class Monday, May 27th due to Memorial Day.

Mondays
4:45-5:55pm in our Small Rehearsal Room

Through games, improvisation and scenework, this class will help young actors to develop confidence, stage presence and their ability to respond in the moment. We will use the five Ws - who, what, when, where and why - to think quickly and create fully realized physical and vocal characters, giving middle school actors a strong base for continued work in the theatre. This course has a strong foundation in improvisational theatre. This class is the first step to building a solid foundation in acting, and is therefore a prerequisite for all other act 2 acting classes.

Next Level: Physical Comedy for act 2

April 29-June 17, 2013
No class Monday, May 27th due to Memorial Day.

Mondays
4:45-5:55pm in our Large Rehearsal Room

Tell stories not just with dialogue, but with great physical comedy. We’ll cover all the pratfalls and pies to the face, but also make sure everything is rooted in a strong character and understanding of situation. This class will be great preparation for both act 2 summer shows!

Pre-requisite: Introduction to Acting for act 2.
