Our next session – Spring Session is March 26th through May 24th. Sign Up.
All “normal” classes explore the art of musical theater and acting with a mix of musicality and singing and acting technique learned through games, exercises, scenes and monologues.
Additional classes include Adult Acting and Improv for the new actor. Not just for people who have an interest in performing, this class will help you be a better, more confident speaker and spark your imagination – and it’s fun. Have some fun! You deserve it. No matter what your skill or confidence level, I guarantee enjoyment and growth.
There’s also a Writing class for young people who love the performing arts, but think they might enjoy creating the stories, as well.
Please give Nick a call at 970-412-4413 with any questions.
Theater isn’t about turning every kid into a star, or even an actor. It’s about celebrating being human and taking their place in humanity.
la-de-da is structured like a company of actors that work together for an extended time. There’s always new actors and returning actors and actors who have been with us their whole childhood. There are parents of la-de-da actors in the adult classes. This fosters the relationship structure so important and prominent in the “real” world of theater. Consequently, student and teacher are constantly challenged to improve, create, inspire and nurture and to have these returned. To be leaders and be lead at the same time.
la-de-da typically has two teachers - a director of music and a director of acting. The Music Director focuses on healthy singing for the stage with strong musicality. Students will learn good breathing and support, dynamics and ear training. They learn a good foundation for success in choral singing, auditioning and individual vocal training. The Acting Director focuses on elements of natural acting as proposed by Konstantin Stanislavski and Richard Boleslavsky with elements of Uta Hagen, Sanford Meisner, Michael Chekov and others. Our philosophy of theater is also strongly influenced by legendary director Peter Brook.
Our two primary focuses are skill building and enjoyment. If it isn’t fun on the most satisfying level, why would anyone want to do it? More information at the following links.
We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems. (O’Shaunessy)
