Class Sessions 2017
Winter/Spring Session (9 weeks).
Week of February 6th through to the week of April 10th. (Please note the studio will not hold classes the week of March 13th)
Limelight is proud to introduce our new "Curriculum Track" classes. We have redesigned our classes so that material covered each semester gets more detailed with each level. Limelight will also introduce at different levels various acting methods and exercises that will further your child's growth not only on but also off stage as well. With our "Curriculum Track" classes each student will receive an evaluation card at the close of each semester. This card will track your child's progress throughout the class as well as recommendations on what they need to work on for future. These cards will be referred to when the time comes for your child to "level" up. Each class will conclude with a performance showcase the final weeks of class. The Musical Theater and Acting classes will always feature your child with a solo song/line or monologue. We do follow our philosophy of working with each individual child at their own comfort level so solos and monologues are encouraged but not mandatory. Limelight believes that everyone deserves a chance to "Step Into Their Limelight". PLEASE NOTE CLASSES, INSTRUCTORS AND TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
INTRO TO MUSICAL THEATRE
MON 4:00-5:30, TUES 4:00-5:30, FRI 4:30-6:00
Limelight is excited to introduce our new "Curriculum Track" class for this age group, see above for description. In this class our goal will be having the student focus on the outside what they are feeling on the inside, creating characters physically rather than text based. We will tell stories using our body language and movement. We will take on different characters and tell stories through dance. We will incorporate singing into the storytelling and create stories with a song. We will work towards finding the actors "voice" all the while establishing teamwork, generate confidence and building work ethic and of course the theater games.. The ever popular theater games are always a hit but we incorporate some type of theater and or life skill during the process which will be helpful to the student both on and off stage. We will then will combine our storytelling, singing and dancing skills to create a performance showcase.
