In this new 3-week intensive workshop, students of all levels (grades 7-12) will develop skills as singer/actors/dancers, focusing on selected scenes from musicals appropriate to their age and level. In working with these scenes and through exercises, improvisation and games, dynamite music theater professional teaching team Anna Smith and Evan Alparone (bios below) will help students build their vocal technique and dance skills, as well as develop characters and on-stage relationships.
