MT Jazz & TapIncludes a warm-up, stretches, floor and corner work, turns, kicks and jumps, combinations, progressions and dances.  Jazz builds strength, energy and attack.  The ATOD tap syllabus is a technically based yet modern tap syllabus with a focus on development and continuity throughout the levels.  Use of the head, arms, corner and travelling steps provide a superb foundation for the performance work.  ATOD has combined elements from both the Jazz and Tap syllabus and included these in their Music Theatre system of training. 

MT Vocals - Group classes, where singing and drama are combined into the one class. The singing component of the class involves learning correct breathing technique, scales, pitch and voice projection.  Students will also have the opportunity to build up a repertoire of songs from a variety of musicals.

MT Acting - The acting component of the class consists of building confidence, teamwork, self-awareness and character analysis.  Students participate in improvisations, movement exercises, drama games and prepare scripted scenes and monologues and/or duologues. 

MT Song Rep - Give students the opportunity to build up a repertoire of songs from a variety of musicals and to explore the text and it’s relationship to individual characters and the storyline in general.  In this class students will also work on harmony singing as well as solo work and audition prep.

Intro to Street Beat (Tap) - This form of Tap comes from Hoofing which is best described as dancing into the floor with emphasis placed on stomps and stamps along with rhythmic percussions of the sounds, music, and syncopations.  Hoofing takes tap back to its roots.  It is all about rhythms – measurements of sound and silence – in hoofing there is no limitation on what can be done.
