Classes are taught in English
Classes once a week, on Thursdays at 19:35
Do you have a passion for musical theatre? Would you like to build up your performance technique, self-expression, and knowledge? Or maybe you just want to learn some high-energy dances and songs in a safe, inclusive environment? Then this Musical Theatre course is for you!
Rebecca Hidalgo (she/her), award-winning choreographer, presents a 6-week adult Musical Theatre course designed for individuals with or without previous theatre & dance training. Every week, we will dive into studying a short routine from a selected musical (Broadway, off Broadway, West End) and make it our own! We will work on the same routine every 2 weeks, and build up to combining them into a traditional “Musical Theatre Revue”. While we will predominantly be focused on movement and dance, acting and group singing will be involved as well (every musical needs “triple-threats”!). Focus will be placed on both individual characterization and working as an ensemble.
This course is LGBTQIA+ positive, body positive and gender inclusive: As part of the Queer community, Rebecca works with a “gender-expansive” approach to dance- meaning that the movement is not limited to “femme” or “masc” binary bodies- anyone of any gender can learn to embody many styles and characters.
*This is a mixed-level class, however some previous basic movement and/or dance training is recommended*
*No previous singing training is necessary- in this class, EVERYONE is a singer (even if you don’t know it yet!)
