This is a two-week class focusing on the songs and dances of popular musical theater films such as Chillin’ Like a Villain from Descendants 2, Footloose, and Shake it Off from Sing.
Musical theater is a performing art utilizing singing, acting, and dancing. Class begins with a fun dance workout followed by stretch, and vocal warm-ups. We will study script scenes used in some of the class selections. Dance songs will include Shake it Off from Sing, Chillin’ Like a Villain from Descendants 2, and Footloose from the film Footloose. Students will practice lyrics to the song selections and learn the choreography.
Sample class itinerary:
First class: focus on Chillin’ Like a Villain song lyrics and choreography after warm ups, stretch, vocal practice, and acting exercises.
Second class: review Chillin’ Like a Villain and Footloose after warm ups, stretch, vocal practice, and acting exercises.
Third class: review Chillin’ Like a Villain, Footloose after warm ups, stretch, vocal practice, and acting exercises.
Fourth class: review all song lyrics and dances taught warm ups, stretch, vocal practice, and acting exercises.
Students are encouraged to participate actively with singing, dancing, and script reading. Scripts will be shared through the screen share during class.
Samples of other musical theater pieces of classical nature will be shown in class such as scenes from Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music. We will also learn these songs and perform them if time allows.
