3RD – 5TH Specialty: Accents & Dialects


G’day mate! Y’all come back now, ya hear? Oh, bugger off! Sometimes roles call for accents, which can make it a more fun and dynamic character. This class will introduce a number of accents and dialects and allow students time to practice. It’s easy to get caught up in the accent itself, but this class will help keep participants focused on the character. You’ll be amazed how much your voice can enhance a scene!

Skills Focus:
• Discovering different American regional dialects such as southern, New York, Californian, etc
• International dialects such as British, Australian, German, Irish
• Be empowered and equipped with various tools on using dialects
• Learn when a character/accent is appropriate for a character choice
• Work on consistency and reliability with accents/dialects
• How to interpret emotional moments while using a dialect or accent

Jr. High/HS Stage Combat

Step aside, Marvel. In this class, we'll focus on how to perform a fight onstage so that the performers stay safe, but the audience has to come up afterwards and ask "Are you okay?!". Students will be taught a wide range of illusions that can be applied to all kinds of fighting on stage and screen, but with a focus on hand to hand. We will then put together full combat sequences for a final performance. It will be epic.

Skills Focus:
• Stage Combat Skills
• Building Partner & Ensemble Trust
• Acting while Working Technically
• Spatial Awareness
• Group Dynamics

3rd – 5th Singing: Sing!

Can’t get enough of this movie at home? We can’t either! But don’t worry, this class isn’t run by Buster Moon. Do you love Ash’s hardcore attitude and lyrics? Maybe you’re more of a softy for Johnny’s tunes? Or maybe Gunter’s moves are where it’s at? Whatever floats your boat, you get a taste of everything in this class. This class will focus on basic singing techniques including breathing, pitch, projection & diction. Lots of opportunities to sing in groups, duos/trios and solos.

Skills Focus:
• Rhythm & musicality
• Diction & projection
• Pitch and group blending
• Basic harmonies
