Class Experience

Students will learn a song and dance routine they can perform, helping them sharpen their memorization and acting skills, and strengthening their vocal and dance technique while having a blast!
Melanie Leibner Perkins holds her Masters in Musical Theatre from Boston Conservatory and BA from University of Pennsylvania. She is an adjunct faculty member at Nova Southeastern University and runs Perkins Performance Studio where she has taught hundreds of students to sing and act to their full potential. She also runs a successful preschool musical theatre program for hundreds of students each year. Students have gone on to perform internationally and star in national tours as well as study at NYU, Boston Conservatory, PACE, Elon, Shenandoah, Penn State, and more.  She has distinguished herself as an actress, singer, director, and teacher with her work in theatres in Philadelphia, Boston, and South Florida. As an instructor, Melanie has taught for over 20 years, teaching voice, acting, audition prep, monologue, scene study, and improv to students aged 4-74! 
Students will learn how to pickup a song and dance combination and will be able to practice with provided materials and/or links at home. If students want to practice the song for fun on their own they can get the music on iTunes, Spotify, or Amazon! Also a recording of the class will be made available to watch in the classroom so they can keep practicing. No practice outside of the classroom is required but it is suggested for retention.
Links to poems and materials will be provided. Students can dance with jazz/dance shoes or dance barefoot. Make sure students have some room to dance in and a water bottle in case they get thirsty.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will need an open workout space, proper footwear, a water bottle, and may need to stretch beforehand. While the dancing is beginner level and does not involve complicated or dangerous physical movement, students should be safe to avoid injuries and should be properly supervised.
