Students are introduced to the main components of musical theatre including voice, acting, basic music theory, and dance technique (typically musical theatre jazz/broadway style and/or hip hop.) Learn choreography, staging, and costuming basics. Use of props, role playing, and imagination to aid in personal expression and creativity. Students work together to learn mini musical routines from both classic Broadway shows like Cats & Annie to more contemporary productions and shows like Fresh Beat Band, High School Musical, Lion King, and more! Students will showcase what they have learned at an end of session in class parent presentation where they will present 1-2 learned mini musical routines, other material they have learned throughout the session, and be presented with a certificate!
Welcome to Message In Motion! We are an on-site enrichment company that brings classes traditionally taught at a studio or gym conveniently into the classroom during the school day. Since 2009 we have partnered with schools across VA, DC, MD, TN, GA, CT and NJ. We currently offer a variety of classes to boys and girls ages 2.5-12: Ballet | Tap | Jazz | Hip Hop | Cheerleading | Musical Theatre | Circus Arts/Mime | Creative Movement/Exploratory Cultural Dance | Tea And Manners- An Etiquette Class.
Why Message In Motion? Our talented instructors customize their class lesson plans to fit with the unique needs of each individual class. We believe dance and movement classes are not "one size fits all", and so we take the additional time and preparation necessary to accommodate. Our flexible lesson planning allow room for every student in the class to grow in technique and skill, from the most advanced student to the most beginner. We not only use age appropriate movement and music in all classes and presentations, but we ensure a unique balance of class structure, discipline, and technique with fun and creativity. We believe this is the perfect recipe for students of any age to excel!
