A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION
As students bound out of our Winter session classes each Saturday morning and Monday evening, I am reminded of the joy of play that theatre allows us to dive into. At NSMT, we are passionate about Musical Theatre and making our Education program accessible to the community. More importantly, a child’s artistic journey is something we take serious, as we are helping to shape their life-long appreciation for Theatre and the Arts. Our pedagogy is simple: provide students the opportunity to become a well-rounded, versatile performer in a fun, collaborative environment.
Theatre, inherently, allows students to stretch their imaginations, learn to think critically on the spot, embody a character to build empathy and collaborate with others to build trust. While we recognize that not all students will go on to be Broadway stars, we strive to make sure that each student is receiving a quality Theatre education that encompasses various techniques and methods. Each class is taught by a professional teaching artist who has an extensive background in performing and education.
Whether your student is a beginner or has experience, there is always something to be found in our classes that will build upon and strengthen their actor toolbox. With our Winter session classes in full swing, our February and March vacation week classes are a great way for students to jump right in to our education program.
For ages 7-10, Musical Theatre Techniques is perfect for students to build a strong foundational knowledge of the various dance techniques used in the same choreography we use in our mainstage productions.
For ages 11-14, Building Stage Characters is a fantastic class for students looking to give their characters more depth and diversity. The techniques learned in this class will help students build dynamic characters for their next production.
For ages 12-18, Audition Techniques is a great way for students to hone their audition skills. This class will focus on the proper techniques needed to ensure your student puts their best foot forward and is perfect for those auditioning for Summer productions or college theatre programs.
We encourage you to register today to secure your spot in either of these vacation week classes.
