Workshop: The Grinch who Stole an Elf – Sunday 18th December ’22
What is a Workshop?
Our workshops always take on an exciting musical theater theme of a popular show. In the past we have delivered workshops such as:
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- Les Miserables
- Peter Pan
- Best of the West End
- and many more.
Children can expect to complete a Star Project workshop a different child than they were when they began. Full of confidence with new friends and an immense feeling of pride.
What is Musical Theatre?
Musical Theatre is a combination of 3 disciplines! Dance, Singing and Acting.
Musical Theatre class gives students the opportunity to builds skills, confidence and self belief!
Using well known Musicals as our theme we build and create dynamic and exciting classes.
Musicals such as Mary Poppins, Encanto, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Matilda and Annie are some of the popular themes we have used recently.
Here is an example of a typical Musical Theatre class:
- Singing. Children explore warming up their voice correctly with fun vocal warmups and then moving on to learning a song from a show, this includes singing in ensemble, solo, harmony work and vocal technique and safety. Children learn to sing Musical pieces from Broadway shows and challenge their vocal ranges in this element of the class.
- Drama. Drama warmups consist of games to help “break the ice” and build confidence and remove inhibition! These drama warmups challenge imagination, creativity and encourage students to take on characters, using their physical body, facial expressions and voices! They move on to script work, montage, tableau and storytelling all helping them to become more confident speakers and actors.
- Dance. This section always begins with a full body Dance warmup which is fun, high energy inspiring! Students will cover some basic technique such as kicks from the corner, how to pirouette, core stability and stage positions.
Students then go on to learn a section of choreography from a Musical, often performing back to each other in groups to build performance experience and finish with a cool down!
