Grade 7-9 Musical Theatre
2017-18 WELCOME TO MUSICAL THEATRE - Mrs. Jones
We are very excited to be back for another great year with our musical theatre program at Westmount School! Students have had the opportunity to view and ask questions regarding musical theatre calendar and course outline on the second day of class so they know when our group practices/ outside of school commitments will begin. The calendar will be available to students and parents by the end of next week.
Throughout the month of September, our Musical Theatre Class will be working through the “Orientation” and levels, 1, 2 and 3 of the “Movement Discipline” of the Alberta Program of Studies. Areas of focus include team building, body awareness, creative movement, mime and tableau.
