Become a Triple Threat!

Our musical theatre program uses a combination of Laban movement techniques, Improvisation and acting, vocal exercises, and dance choreography to create well rounded theatre program. The focus of this program will be on creating production numbers, those big musical numbers that steal the show! Scenes leading in and out of the musical numbers will also be a part of the program.

Each class will consist of a vocal warm up, movement warm up, drama exercise, vocal practice and choreography. The MT curriculum has been developed by Ms Daelyn and Ms Chantel to create an dynamic well rounded program. 

The students in the musical theatre IV program will become the actors that carry the story line of this year's recital. Prior to recital Ms Chantel works with each class to create the transition scenes between dance numbers working on the acting, narration and blocking for all musical theatre students. Student vocals are recorded and edited into the pre recorded songs.


Full-Year Commitment

At J’Adore Dance we view our dancers as part of our community. As a community, we expect families who enter our program to be ready to commit to a full year program, including a special theatre recital (Dates listed in Policy Handbook). Our theatre recital allows special friends and family members to view our dancers’ hard work and give your dancer the opportunity to perform on stage! If you are unsure if your family can make a full year commitment we highly recommend registering in one of our sessional preschool or kids programs.
