For students who have completed a Core class. They explore specialized concentrations in areas of acting and musical theatre that vary from year to year. These classes offer continued enrichment for the developing performer, and students may spend multiple years at this stage before they are given a recommendation for Conservatory classes.
- Improvisation (Acting) - Improvisation is a separate performance style and an integral tool to scripted work in freeing the actor to make quick decisions in rehearsal and performance. This class is great for students looking to improve their auditions or callbacks, and looking to boost their everyday creativity and confidence.
- The Actor's Mask (Acting) - The challenge of an actor is to bring life to an idea - animating the inanimate. Working with both physical masks and the “mask of the face” is a bridge towards connecting emotions with deeper character work. This class is great for students looking to increase their physical awareness and control, and looking to add vitality to their performance.
- Scene to Song (Musical Theatre) - Singers must never forget: a song is another vehicle to tell a story. Students will explore solo material while incorporating textual analysis of the lyrics. This class is great for students looking to deepen their personal connection with their singing, and looking to apply advanced vocal techniques.
- Broadway Styles (Musical Theatre) - The styles in musical theatre performance change over time, from classic “legit singing” to modern “pop/rock”. Students will explore these evolutions through vocal performance and choreography with a focus on ensemble work. This class is great for students looking for experience with the larger canon of musical theatre.
