MUSICAL THEATER:

Musical Theater is a BLAST! Students will learn all kinds of performing skills! Ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical and movement are some of the dance styles taught to tell the story of the song. Acting and becoming the character are part of it too. No prior dance experience necessary and no singing is actually required! (Of course, if you find yourself singing along, that's ok too!)

What to wear: dance wear that you can move in and tan jazz shoes. Hair pulled back neatly in a bun or ponytail.
