(Musical Theatre Classes)
This Musical Theatre class is a favorite 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.
‘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.
