Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole. Although musical theatre overlaps with other theatrical forms like opera and dance, it may be distinguished by the equal importance given to the music as compared with the dialogue, movement and other elements. Musical Theatre at Ultimate Dance Center emphasizes a Broadway Jazz dance style with audition & acting preparation, improvisation techniques & vocal training! Musical Theatre is taught by Kristen Howell, schedule times vary.
