7. Disney Spectacular Tour Group. S304 (ages 13-18). *This is a Class you must Audition to get in to.
Assistant: Kennedy Halwa
You must enroll in an alternate class before you can audition for this class.
CORNERSTONE'S Disney Spectacular has been a very successful touring performance in the Central Alberta Community. In the past, HYPE students have been the students who carried the Tour Group, but Cornerstone would like to open the opportunity for other students to perform this classic Disney Prince and Princess piece in the community this spring. Students who are cast in this class will commit to performing at bookings throughout the spring. Audition is a vocal audition. Class will emphasize character development, harmonizing, and choreography.
8. Rock the ROCK Audition S380 (ages 12-18) Prerequisites: ALL THREE FOUNDATION COURSES.
Teacher: Ashley Miller
Rock musicals are an increasingly dominant force in contemporary musical theatre. Rock the Audition focuses in on this quickly growing area and defines what is required of a performer to succeed in the audition room and on stage. The class will explore: understanding of style and time period and relate that knowledge to how they perform or coach, use tools and tricks to nail all the vocal styles and understand how they changed with time, and synthesize the body, voice, and emotion in their performance (which requires a very different approach than traditional musical theatre).
Registration for the next class season will be available shortly.
