Musical Theatre Classes
Musical Theatre classes are a favourite among many of our students. ‘PERFORM NOW’ focuses on expert tuition in training the ‘triple threat’ performer; voice/acting/dance while developing confidence. It is different to the ‘ACT NOW’ (Drama/Acting class) because it offers a more comprehensive approach to the 3 important skills needed for Musical Theatre
Chris' Musical Theatre classes focus on the strengths of the individual and explore tips and tricks to find a balanced performance.
Tap Dance Classes
With 'TAP NOW' you will learn technique and rhythms with a comfortable and easy style. Chris' unique approach to tap dance training and choreography is world recognised (FAPA, NTC) and includes the following -
CONTEMPORARY TAP DANCE
CLASSIC TAP DANCE
PERFORMANCE TAP DANCE
TECHNICAL TAP DANCE
Tap is the most rhythmic genre of dance, combining timing, movement and percussion. This class focuses on the combination of a solid technique, rhythm and stylised movement in both traditional and commercial styles.
‘ACT NOW’ is our drama & acting class. It is the study of characters, physical movement, role play and improvisation. Students benefit with improved life skills, confidence and social awareness. Encouraging the students' individuality is the core of drama.
Your teacher will guide students safely through the basic skills of successful storytelling and provide the building blocks to creativity.
