Musical Theatre

The Community School’s Musical Theatre program is designed for students ages 9-18 who have a passion for singing, dancing, and acting. This program offers a range of classes, from beginner classes which develop the dance skills needed to progress in Musical Theatre training, to intensive programs which prepare High School students who are serious about musical theatre for a career in this competitive art form.  

 Our weekly classes focus on developing good vocal technique, acting skills, and versatility in dance through jazz, modern, and ballet, with the goal of empowering students to connect with and perform stories in their own unique way.   

 Auditions are required for all classes except Youth Musical Theatre Dance. Submit an inquiry to schedule an audition! 

Classes

Designed for young students who are needing dance skills to deepen their Musical Theatre training. The triple-threat art form requires dance as a regular component of the artist’s study. This class uses Jazz dance technique to strength and develop strong alignment and dance skills needed for Musical Theatre. This class meets once weekly for ages 9-13 years.

This class is for High School students who are on the path to a Musical Theatre career. It provides the training that is not available in their school programs to help connect and build skills. A weekly dance class that rotates Jazz, Modern, and Ballet throughout the year gives students the versatility needed for this competitive art form. Voice and choreography are brought to life with acting that connects the song and movement to the story. Auditions are required for new students. 

For students who are NOT enrolling in the full Musical Theatre Program.

A weekly dance class that rotates Jazz, Modern, and Ballet throughout the year gives students the versatility needed for this competitive art form. Auditions are required for new students. 

Ages 14 – 20. Singing and acting techniques often seem to be “at odds” with one another, but are they really? Learn to connect with the text and perform the song in your own unique and affecting way. This class will include basic instruction on vocal technique and focus on learning and performing solo repertoire, as well as, basic acting technique and strategies for combining the two in an understandable way that will help you with current and future auditions and performances. Audition interviews and pre-approval required, please contact mstevens@colburnschool.edu for further information.
