Workshop description

Do you love to sing? Do you ever pick out a song and not know where to start or how to develop a character?

Then Breaking Down the Song is the class for you. Explore a variety of methods that professional actors use when acting through song. Discover how to learn more about your character through the lyrics, relate the song to your own life, play improv games to keep the material fresh and fun, and think outside of the box when it comes to acting a song. Explore a wide range of acting techniques to help bring your songs to the next level all while having fun and singing your favorite tunes.

At the end of our classes, we will perform the songs we have been working on and celebrate our new skills.

By breaking down his writing and analyzing it together, we will learn how to fully bring his words to life. When we have a complete understanding of what he was saying, performing his plays and poems in front of an audience becomes a whole lot easier and so much more fun!

So come “Be Our Guest” and enjoy Belle’s Enchanted Tales.

Suitable for ages 8-15
