Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance!: Broadway Edition (12-classes)
In addition to building the core skills of singing, dancing, and acting, this semester class will expose students to various styles of musical theater starting with the musical comedy Crazy For You; moving to the popular Disney movie musical Newsies; and ending with the contemporary stylings of Legally Blonde The Musical. Students will dance and sing their way through the world of these popular Broadway musicals to find common elements and universal themes. The semester will culminate in a cabaret-style showcase that features selections from these Broadway shows, as well as selections from TADA!’s fall main-stage production.
