Group Classes & workshops
In addition to recitals twice a year, we offer a few group classes and workshops to give a variety of opportunity to students! These classes are open to everyone!
Performing with Stage Fright
"Stage fright is my worst problem. A voice is very intimate. It's something of your own. So there's always this fear, because you feel naked. There's a fear of not reaching up to expectations." --- Andrea Bocelli
Everyone gets nervous sometimes. Learn how to work WITH your nerves when you sing on stage, instead of trying to fight them. Nerves do not have to hold you back from being the best performer you can be! This will be a 2 hour workshop on Sunday May 20th from 1-3 pm. All levels and genres are welcome! This class will be led by Amy Dancz. This workshop is $60.
Studio class is a small workshop designed to rehearse performance and audition techniques. The idea is to put yourself out there and practice *performing*, so please don't feel intimidated, nerves are a part of the experience! In these classes we discuss:
- Dramatic Intent
- Text Interpretation
- Emotional Arc
Studio Class is typically one hour and is held the last Friday of each month. No pre-requisite is required to participate.
Duets and Ensemble Workshop
This will be an intimate 8 week course meeting Saturdays 10 am- 11:15 am devoted to ensemble work. You'll be assigned duets, trios, and ensemble pieces according to your voice type and skill set. We will rehearse them in the form of musical and staging rehearsals. Different genres will have different staging (pop music won't be staged like musical theatre).
Musical Theatre, Classical, and Pop singers encouraged. All skill levels are welcome.
The class will be molded around the interests of those who participate. I'm not setting a lower age limit for the class, so if your child is interested, please let me know! Adults and children work in tandem on the stage all the time, it can be a good fit where everyone can learn and have fun.
This course is perfect for you if:
- You are an experienced performer looking to hone your skills
- You want a low-pressure introduction to singing with others
- You love harmony
- You want to develop stage presence
- You need more singing in your life!
- You want to spend more time with Amy ;)
The course will run Saturday Mornings in Fall 2018 and will cost $220. Strong performances may be included in our Winter Recital!
