Musical theater is a form of theatrical performance that combines singing, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole. Musical Theater is the study of Broadway dance, singing and acting. Young students as well as teens learn choreography from selected musicals, such as “High School Musical”, “Hair Spray”, “Annie”, “Fosse”, and many more. At Dance Expressions, we offer an excellent Musical Theater program. Our focus is on Broadway musicals old and new! Our instructors introduce song and choreography into dance techniques and styles, along with vocal and acting coaching. If you are interested in performing in your school plays and musical, this class is essential!
