Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(220)
Welcome to the virtual conservatory of musical theater arts! In this 30 meeting semester course, students will train in the three primary areas of musical theater; acting, singing and dancing. This conservatory is by invitation only.

Class experience

In this first semester, students will gain a foundational understanding of the following subjects:

Intro to Acting
Voice Technique
Intro to Musical Theater Dance
Intro to Tap
Broadway Choreography
Ear Training
Sight Singing
Audition Prep
Some days will consist of dancing and yoga. I am qualified to teach in both areas. In addition to those degrees and certifications, I also have 15 years of professional experience as a stage performer. I have performed all over the country and on Broadway. 

I attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre from the University of Florida. This program provided intensive dance training. I previously trained at various studios ever since I was a little girl. I am fully capable of leading a well rounded and safe dance class and will always do a thorough warm up to protect the students from injuries. 

I also received my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification from One Yoga in Kho Pha-ngan, Thailand. Yoga has always been a huge benefit to me as a performer, which is why I am excited to incorporate that knowledge into this theater intensive course. 
Homework Offered
A typical homework assignment will consist of: 1) Daily vocal warm up 2) Memorizing and preparing for mock auditions 3) Choreographing a dance 4) Scene work prep
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will not be given grades, but may be asked to participate in simple verbal assessments on the spot, to show that they are retaining the content. They will be given direct feedback during all of the workshops/mock auditions.
Grades Offered
A black, three ring binder to become the student’s audition book. This holds the sheet music for their "audition ready" songs. Make sure to purchase non glare sheet protectors. This does not need to be ready at the start of the course. It's intended for their personal readiness at upcoming auditions. They should also have a current resume and headshot (this does not need to be professionally taken).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Please provide ample water for the student during each class as we will be dancing and singing a lot. They will need to stay hydrated! I also highly recommend they begin to hydrate one hour before each class, to start preparing the vocal chords for singing. Dance shoes are not required, but they are welcome if you have them! When we dance, all that is necessary is a small space, clear from clutter.
