Recently the EHS Theatre Department hosted its 4th annual Musical Theatre Workshop. Students spent the day in six different hour long master classes taught by professional dancers, singers, actors, directors, and choreographers from across Colorado. These guest artists have worked at the Denver Center for Performing Arts, Arvada Center, Candlelight Dinner Playhouse, BDT Stage, on national tours, tv, and the cruise line industry.
The master classes consisted of acting, dance, vocal, audition preparation, how to market yourself, the dos and don'ts of professional auditions, and finding/keeping a job. I was able to float around and watch the kids participate. It was inspiring seeing these students so willingly and graciously absorb material, stretch themselves, and gain confidence.
