Explorations in Musical Theatre for Kids (ages 6-9)
Our Explorations in Musical Theatre for Kids for ages 6-9 encourages students to explore, play, and be a part of an ensemble! This class is a great introduction to musical theatre.
The class begins with games and exercises to introduce students collaborative play, ensemble building skills, and the foundational elements of storytelling.
Students explore musical theatre by working as an ensemble on a selected musical. Each 6-week class will focus on a different musical, such as The Wizard of Oz, Annie, The Lion King, etc. Acting and performance skills are explored as students work on scenes from the same musical. Students learn how to work with an accompanist via vocal warms up and technique.
The class culminates in an open class to share their plays for friends and family.
This class is on-going, and can be taken multiple times.
This class teaches our specific approach to storytelling, and introduces students to the same tools that our adult professional actors work with. We believe that to act is to play and that students learn the most in an atmosphere of relaxed positive reinforcement.
What makes The Barrow Group School different from many other studios in NYC is that all of our teachers have gone through an intensive teacher training program with TBG co-Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock. So when your child takes a class with us, the teacher has trained for years at The Barrow Group in our specific approach.
