It is a very hands on class and has been extremely helpful in assisting students with lowering their anxiety when needing to be in front of a class or group etc. No experience is needed.Music theater- This class is the only class you need to audition to get in to. It is open for any 7-8th grader who would like to take a class combination of Chorus and Drama. We will put on performances and showcase our skills in acting, singing, and dancing. The auditions will be announced in March and you will need to sing a short part of a song for me ( 1 verse, 1 chorus) and send it to me in a video format. You will also do a 1 minute monologue for me and send that in video format. I can take up to 24 students in this class. We perform the most and you recieve 1 credit hour for each year you are accepted into the class. No experience is needed, you just need to be willing to learn more about performing and we will take care of the rest!
