APAC DEPARTMENTS

Musical Theatre Department

These classes are designed to teach stage presence, proper singing, musicianship, pitch recognition, teamwork, stamina, listening skills and stage movement - appropriate to the abilitiy of the students. Students will study the history of musical theatre including composers, choreographers, genres, eras and styles. Musical selections will include pieces from a varied repertoire including musical theatre, film score, art song, and much more. Private voice instruction is also available for high school age students through adult.

Theatre Department

APAC's theatre classes give participants the opportunity to engage in creative expression while learning the fundamenals of performing on stage. Instructors strive to create a student-centered atmosphere that will contribute to an enriching experience and a successful final performance. Younger classes will explore the dynamic process of making a play using popular children's literature as a springboard for their imaginations. Participants will learn to use the actor's three basic tools - the voice, the body, and the mind - in order to communicate a story to the audience. Classes for middle and high school students will focus more closely on scene study, improvization, character development, and acting technique.

Dance Department

APAC's dance department offers beginning through advanced training in ballet, tap, jazz, modern lyrical, and hip hop. Correct technique, muscle development, and coordination will be emphasized as well as poise, confidence, and discipline. Strong emphasis will be placed on personal expression through dance as well as studying variations of dance within an assortment of performance venues. Students will be challenged according to their age and ability, and will be exposed to many styles of dance to better pinpoint individual strengths and talents.

Kindermusik/Early Childhood Music Department

With more than 25 years of experience in creating curricula based on new and proven research in child development, Kindermusik Internationl is the world's leading publisher of music and movement curricula for parents and their children. The award-winning books, CDs, games, and instruments will develop and nuture critical developmental skills in the whole child: Cognitive, Physical, Social, Emotional, and Language. In a Kindermusik class, an educator leads a group of parents and their children through joyful activities, using music and movement. Parents learn more about their child's unique developmental process, and the shared learning experience creates a bond as the child associates learning with fun, musical play. The learning process then continues at home, guided by specially designed books, CDs, and games.
