✰ Develop confidence
✰ Develop foundation in vocal production in singing
✰ Develop expressiveness in presentation
✰ Develop appropriate repertoire for performances
✰ Present performances on stage
This performance training program consists of the following components:
✰ Musicianship and Singing
Build the right foundation in vocal production and aural skills. The objective is to sing in pitch, produce good tonal quality, and sustain proper breath control.
Students learn to role play and use their imagination to create characters and stories. Understanding the meanings of the songs sung develops empathy and vocabulary.
✰ Performance Development
In this component, exercises are conducted to build confidence and personality. Putting together movement and singing; emoting through facial expressions, and learning stagecraft is the beginning of a triple threat performer and the essence of this program.
✰ Dance Technique
The students will learn creative and jazz movements as a foundation for dance. Motor skills and dance vocabulary are developed here in a fun way. Students choosing to further their technique to achieve grading certification should attend the Certification track.
This segment puts the dance moves into practice with the songs they are singing. Learning to work in a team, synchronisation and spatial awareness is the key learning points in this segment.
