A DAY IN THE LIFE: YOUTH SUMMER INTENSIVE
Our day starts with warm up activities! Participants can look forward to vocal warm ups, stretching, dance drills, and drama exercises and games!
After a break, we begin working on Colleen and Akiva’s new music theatre repertoire. Instructors will work with participants to build upon and strengthen their singing, acting and dancing skills. In addition young artsists will get to collaborate and be part of creating and developing new music theatre repertoire.
We’re back to work, making this new repertoire show-ready by the end of the week. Working with our team of music theatre professionals will not only improve music theatre skills, but strengthen creative thinking, and give unique insight into the process of writing, developing and work-shopping new, original music theatre!
