Enter and explore the World of Musical Theatre at Spindrift!
Graduates of Spindrift School are notoriously well-rounded performers, and much of that stems from involvement in our musical theatre program. However, these classes do so much more than produce the enviable “triple threat”; they cultivate a love of music, movement and language all while creating friendships that often last a lifetime.
Intro to Musical Theatre ages 4-7 “Madagascar!”
Students learn the basics of musical theatre performance, from expressing character to basic musical theatre movement and choreography through the songs and narrative of “Madagascar!”. A casual presentation for friends and family at the end of the session allows students to share their new skills. This class is offered 2x on Saturday and once on Thursday. Consistent attendance is required. Performance is during final class.
Musical Theatre KIDS ages 7-9 “Madagascar!”
This class concentrates on a combination of Broadway style dance technique & acting skills. Musical Theatre begins with Intro to Musical Theatre up to Level III where students put on a full Broadway Jr. Production. By the time they have done earlier levels of Musical Theatre and supported their training with dance and drama classes they are prepared for the Winter and Spring Shows as teens. Those students entering later still have a clear path for success in the productions and summer shows. A dance and/or theatre class is highly recommended in tandem with musical theatre training. This class is offered on 2 different days.
