Broadway I: Acting Technique

This mandatory Acting Technique class will help performers achieve triple-threat status which means, skilled in singing, acting and dance. All three elements are equally important in musical theater and are all valued areas in our LINX Broadway Theater productions. Each week a new topic is taught and the fourth week of the month is used as a combination day where students learn for example, how to project vocally while dancing, or how to add character to song.

Your child will learn:

  • Singing in character
  • Dancing in character
  • The ability to focus on multiple techniques at once
  • How to identify the reason for singing within the context of a show
  • Active listening in character
  • Engaging stage presence
  • Confidence in taking risks

Rapunzel, a musical adaptation based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, is no love story. It’s a tale of friendship and family. It starts with a girl, traded at birth, and locked away in a tower. Her hair was so long it was the perfect place for the witch to hide her magic. Rapunzel didn’t know she was a princess until a group of thieves entered her tower and the Witch’s scheme was foiled. Wonderful characters make up this ensemble cast such as the royal family, Rapunzel’s woodland friends, and a band of hilarious thieves who aren’t very skilled at being criminals.
