Musical Theatre classes combine singing, acting and dancing and is a great way to explore the magic of musicals. The children study the repertoire from the popular musical theatre canon to work on each half term. For example, in recent terms the children have studied numbers from Aladdin and Annie.
Classes are taught in a fun & supportive way, to give even the most nervous child the confidence to take part. The class will also work on a group piece which parents can see at the last lesson of each term in 'Watching Week'.
Lessons begin with a warm up where the children play 'drama games' to relax them and encourage group bonding for confidence purposes. Then they move on to learning a song from a popular show together with some dance choreography that goes with that. They are also encouraged to develop their acting skills to really tell that story to their audience.
Research suggests music, drama and dance help develop children’s brains and academic performance. Engagement in these areas can help reduce stress and has many cognitive, social, psychological, physical, health and spatial benefits for the growing child.
The primary benefit that we hear from the parents of our students, is that the classes have built confidence in their children, not just in performing but across a range of areas and activities in their lives.
