We are delighted to announce our Musical Theatre class for the upcoming term.
From as early as the 19th century musicals have been an exhilarating source of entertainment. From the Gilbert and Sullivan classics to the modern day jukebox show, they provide us with a moment of escapism or an alternative view on momentous events and popular culture. For young performers they are a way of expressing creativity while learning key skills, both life and artistic.
Working with the Irish Board Musical Theatre syllabus we will provide students with a sense of progression and challenge. We will explore different styles, characters and moods all the while exploring the long and colourful history of the art form.
Graded examinations will be facilitated with both group and individual options through the class.
Following on from the success of our Public Speaking class in semester 1, we are happy to announce increased availability in semester 2. Our Public Speaking class gives an opportunity to students to obtain key skills in how they approach the communication of information or ideas to a group or audience, in such a way as to maintain their interest.
For young people, speaking in a group, giving a presentation, preparing for a job interview, giving a formal speech, or taking part in a debate, is increasingly common in today’s society. Through the Syllabus of the Irish Board of Speech and Drama, which we follow here at RCMA, we encourage students to feel comfortable and confident in their approach to achieving these life skills. Our class prepares students to be fluent, clear and expressive when speaking in imagined settings.
