We are thrilled to introduce you to Imperial Artistry's Musical Theatre Group Class. This programme is our only dedicated group class - and for good reason. Over the course of the year, students will devise their own show from scratch - incorporating singing, dancing, and (of course) musical numbers from their favourite shows. It is a long-term project for the dedicated musical theatre lover, and those enrolled will develop teamwork, focus, and a broad range of technical performance skills.
The structure of the course is divided into three segments:
- As assisted by teachers, students will choose songs to be incorporated into the shows. This will commence a process of investigation into the musicality and meaning of each piece, to be used as a bedrock for later devising and scenework.
- The process of actually creating a show will begin, and the focus of classes will shift from the music of the show, to the actual performance and drama of a scene. Students will learn basic acting techniques and stagecraft, as well as the ability to work as a unit in order to convey the tone and story of their work.
- Finally, choreography will be introduced, and the hard work of doing everything at the same time will begin. After the initial - and inevitable - mess, our seasoned performance coaches will iron out the creases, and teach the ensemble to work and support each other as a team, in order to bring the show together for the final end of year exhibition!
As much as we would love to make it available to everyone, due to its technical nature the class is strictly limited to a maximum of 10 students, all of whom must be at least 8 years of age.
