In Musical Theatre, the three great performing arts of singing, dancing and acting combine to create one vibrant performance experience.
In each class, students learn to sing and refine their singing technique; learn dance movements and choreographed sequence for each song; act out scenes, try out characters and learn their part in the class performance. Classes are action-packed, energetic and exciting!

Kindy – Year 1
What is musical theatre? At this age it is an introduction into the three main elements that make up musical theatre. Dancing, acting, singing. Students will learn the fundamental skills of each and how to apply them all at once in a fun and energetic class.
Year 2 – 4
A time to build confidence and explore working as an ensemble with a combination of creative play in groups and as individuals. Development in skills will also allow for confidence to build as we learn fundamental dance, acting and vocal techniques.
Year 5 – 6
Creativity within the lines of a script or score is all about character building. While learning technique and application, we explore the dynamics available to make character choices and at the same time the importance of working alongside a director both as an individual and as an ensemble.
