Our popular Broadway Obsession classes use great musical theater pieces as a fun and approachable way to teach students all aspects of performance.
Students will learn scenes, songs, and choreography from three shows they love.
Mean Girls, Dear Evan Hansen, and Beetlejuice are recent Broadway shows that feature adolescents as the central characters. Students aged 9+ relate to these young characters, which makes learning the material easier and more accessible.
Even if you don’t know these three shows, you’re sure to become a fan. Come join us, and get obsessed!
DATES: Fridays September 30 – January 27
(No class October 14, November 25, December 23, December 30)
TIME: 5:00pm – 6:00pm
