Broadway at MBD
Musical Theater

Our Musical Theater Program at Miss Becky's is Perfect.....

If you love to sing and dance! Learn songs from Broadway shows and then stage them! Each class starts with a vocal warm up.  Students are  taught the song lyrics and music, including harmony. Then, the acting, the song, and dance are staged or choreographed. The Vocal Coach/Pianist, and Dance Teacher/Choreographer work with the students to help them understand and interpret the songs, so they learn to tell the story that's within each song. A MUST for the student striving to be a Triple Threat!

About the Curriculum

 

Our curriculum teaches the young dancer the basic elements of movement and dance: space and how we relate to it, both as an individual and as a member of a group; basic loco motor skills; musical rhythm, beat and time; opposites and directions; and some elementary positions of ballet. Integrated with these physical concepts are self-awareness, creative expression, imagination, teamwork, and basic body/health awareness.
Through participation in these classes, students also learn the basics of classroom behavior and classroom etiquette, which remain the same throughout their dancing years. These concepts include learning how to take turns, following another dancer or leading the way, waiting patiently, working together with others, and having a positive attitude.

Educators now know that training young children in the concepts of movement sequencing, patterning, and spatial relationships lays a strong foundation for the later development of reading, mathematics, and other educational skills. Children in our program work actively in all of these areas.
