Online Musical Theater Workshop

We guarantee the same quality of one-on-one attention that is the foundation of our mission to inspire the next generation of performing artists.
DATES: July 10-12th, 2020
“Can musical theater training be eﬀective in the virtual realm?”
Yes, it can be equally as eﬀective. Our instructors have been coaching professionals and students in this medium for many years. The techniques and exercises we use virtually are customized to the occasion, just the same as they are with “in person” workshops. We evaluate whether a student would most beneﬁt from a physical adjustment, a vocal exercise, or a concept at any given moment. In other words, we utilize a variety of approaches to maximize your growth.
We will still commence with an audition/interview. We will still assign you songs that are tailored to your abilities and interests, providing live guidance as to the musical requirements and interpretative possibilities. You will still have lessons in body awareness/movement, dance, vocal technique, acting, diction, text analysis, repertoire, theater history, and auditioning. The workshop will still culminate in an online performance opportunity and a private evaluation with our faculty.
While we all regret the inability to share a physical space with you, we have found that virtual classes actually oﬀer some value even beyond what “in person” workshops oﬀers. The lessons are super focused with laser-like intensity because all faces must put their attention on the same thing at the same time. In other words, lack of distraction and maximum use of time. Virtual work depends even stronger individual responsibility for musical accuracy than “in person” training. Acting choices have to be super-concentrated as well because of the proximity of our eyes to one another. Therefore, your musical theater ﬁtness level will expand greatly from our virtual time together!
