Our Classes 

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS & CALENDAR BELOW

Our classes are specifically designed to allow performers to work on their craft as an ensemble, but with one on one attention.

Classes are either billed on a 4 wk cycle, per semester (12-13 wks), or workshop series. 

We have 4 different Levels:

  •  Introductory and just for fun! 

  • Interested, can still be a beginner but wants to work! 

  • You think this could be your thing, or is a beginner who is dedicated!

  • This is what you love and want to really advance your craft! 

Levels are just a guide.  If we feel the student would advance more quickly or benefit from a a different level, we will suggest that. Skill level is as important as Age.

*No germs are allowed to be in the studio. We  are a select, small studio and want to make sure all students and teachers remain healthy.  Classes can be recorded if a student misses.

 * If at any point a class has to be cancelled due to the teacher, you will be alerted and refunded for the missed class. 

*Please read waiver page upon enrollment.

Audition Prep Combo NO RECITAL!  NO SHOWCASE!  Just YOU IMPROVING! 

Musical Theatre isn’t just Jazz! 

Musical Theatre is now Tap, Jazz, hip hop, lyrical, and always the core of Musical Theatre Choreography, ballet. 

Using our audition technique of Recognize, Repeat, Retain and Perform, each week, students will learn a new audition combo to music from various Broadway Musicals.  Weeks will rotate. 

Students will leave class having mastered basic dance steps for all genres found under musical theatre allowing them to perform during the audition not think.

More advanced students will be challenged with harder, complex combinations crafting the ability to retain and perform quickly in an audition space.

All students will learn how to improv, develop a character, and master body control through technique. 

Ages 12 and up  Level: "This is what you love and want to really advance your craft!" 

Thursdays 6:30 - 7:25pm

 Auditions Auditions Auditions!  "Prepare before the audition is even posted." 

Stop freaking out over Auditions.   Auditioning is a skill that can be developed!   

In this half hr long class, students will focus only on practicing reading scripts, sides and cold reads!   

Every week new materials  will be given to the students allowing them to learn delivery,  how to make clear decisions quickly, and how to connect emotions even when they don’t know the full context.  

Weekly exposure to new scripts & reading on the spot help them to cultivate not only acting skills need to nail the audition, but life skills such as public speaking and reading comprehension. 

Students will leave this class mastering quick reading & character development combined with building an acting book of repertoire.

The Musical Theatre Experience 101

Is your student singing whenever they can?  Are they so animated they make you smile when they are expressing themselves?  Are they filled with drama?   Then you may have a budding performer on your hands! 

In this class students will be introduced to memorization,  theatre etiquette, basic stage directions, mastering emotions,  and how to speak on stage, all through ensemble building games/activities. 

Basic reading skills are a plus but not required*  

Level:  1st - 3rd grade  Introductory and just for fun! 

$50  Tuesdays 5:15 -6:00

Teacher: Mr. James 

*Runs four weeks, and automatically re-enrolls after the four weeks. Must email to cancel within 5 days of processing. 

This is How You Book the Role 

There is so much more to performing than just the performance! A performer is just like an athlete.  A baseball player would never not practice and just go play a season.  Performers need to learn how to train so that they can book the roles they want! 

 

In this musical theatre prep class, students will work on preparing the skills needed for not only our spring semester musical, but also any future auditions and productions! 

Students will practice auditioning, memorizing blocking/choreography, work with  scripts, learn stage motivations, what is character development, and so much more!

Level: Interested, can still be a beginner but wants to work!  & You think this could be your thing, or is a beginner who is dedicated!

Want to learn how to perform a song and not just sing the lyrics?  

Then this quick class is for you!  

Each month work on a 16 to 32 bar cut of music that will be able to be used at Auditions!

Invite Only

At BYA, we believe when put together like minded students, with the same dreams and goals, they automatically begin to push each other, learn from each other, and find a non competitive network to support each other.  

This class is for students we have worked with and showed interest in leveling up their craft. 

This class is only open to a select BYA students.  Auditions for this class are possible but class, camp, and lesson participation is also a factor. 

Age varies. Semester class with showcase 

Thursdays for LV2
