Presented by The Actors' Workshop Clara Marullo and Jennifer Higham
This past-paced day of singing and dancing will take you through a proper vocal and physical warm-up followed by learning and performing a scene from a contemporary musical. With in-depth singing coaching and exciting original choreography, this is a workout for your voice, body and mind. Most importantly, we will focus on storytelling through song and dance: how to move an audience and draw them into your imaginative world as an MT actor night after night, show after show….
This masterclass is aimed at student and professional performers with some dance/singing experience.
