Musical theater is a type of performance that combines songs, dialogue, acting, and dance. Since the early 20th century, “musical theater” stage works have been known by the general public as “musicals”, in the fashion of The King and I, The Sound of Music, and many more. Musical theater classes at On Pointe give each student an orientation to all elements of this type of stage performance with a focus on dance and acting. This class is an essential step for students looking to become part of a professional stage production as a career. We strongly recommend that any students who are passionate about pursuing a career in Musical Theater take this class in combination with Voice Lessons.
