A WAY TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD

Song and Dance solos

“At the Dance Eisteddfod you can tell the kids that do ExitLeft, they always stand out”

Today’s young dancers spend hours perfecting their routines and getting the steps perfect. But what if there was an easy way to learn the singing skills that go with dancing? Our high-energy new Singing for Dance classes for kids from Grade 3 up are a fantastic way to improve your song and dance skills in a practical way. Plus you can add a solo singing lesson at the same time. If you are a performer, you need to be able to sing!

SINGING FOR DANCE CLASSES

GRADE THREE TO TWELVE

The Singing for Dance program is a 45 minute high-energy class designed to help kids who study dance sing better in their Song and Dance performances and at their dancing concerts. Students learn how to sing safely, how to make a great sound, how to work with backing tracks and how to create a great Song and Dance performance.

Students will have a showcase performance during the year and can extend their learning through personalised lessons in voice. This class is perfect for students who take dance lessons at any of the dance schools in Hobart and can’t fit in our full performing arts program.

Students already enrolled in a Performance Class + singing lesson package are able join this class free of charge.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND SKILLS

PERSONALISED LESSONS

Individual lessons are a great way to focus on development of skills and performance techniques. For students who dance adding an individual 15 or 30 minute singing lesson gives them the opportunity to work on improving their Song and Dance pieces, fix any issues with backing tracks and provide advice on song choices that suit students vocal range and ability.

School aged students must be enrolled in a Performance or Singing for Dance Class to be eligible for individual singing lessons.

THE STAGE SCHOOL PROJECT

What is ExitLeft most famous for? our shows! Well, we have been hard at work preparing some fantastic shows that your children can be part of with our 2017 Stage School project. This fast-tracked theatre performance training project gives students the chance to expand their skills in singing, acting, choreography and stagecraft culminating in a fully staged show at the Peacock Theatre. Anyone who is participating in an ExitLeft Performance class can sign up with auditions only to determine who is playing which part. Stage School provides an intensive boost to performance skills and gives the kids the chance to shine in an ExitLeft show!

The Stage School Project is available to students enrolled in a Performance or Singing for Dance class.
