This summer, immerse yourself in music, movement (or dance), and play with the “Musical Theatre” course! In movement classes, you will be exposed to different styles of dance that will enhance your ability to tell a story physically. In vocal performance classes, you will learn how to act the song and feel the music. Acting classes will be devoted to your personal connection to character and text and the basic principles of acting. The USC School of Dramatic Arts experience offers rigorous play and skills to celebrate your unique self through Musical Theatre.
Summer Theatre Conservatory is also offered in Acting Intensive and Comedy Performance.
