Musical Theatre: Singing and Dancing for the Stage

I Can Do That NYC

Kidz Tips
  • Broadway Pro leads class
  • Musical accompaniment
  • scenes, songs, improv and acting!

Does your child love to sing and spontaneously break out into song and dance? Do they love to act, dress up and create characters? This is the class for them!In this Musical Theatre class a special emphasis is placed on singing and acting. With the guidance of a Broadway Pro, students will be introduced to a different Broadway musical or animated film each week and learn songs and scenes from these shows. They will learn to break down a song, understand what the song is about and begin to understand telling a story through song. They will also learn to break down scenes, develop original characters and even participate in writing and creating their own monologues and/or scenes. Broadway musicals and movies may include Hamilton, SpongeBob, Newsies, Moana, Frozen, Matilda, Finding Neverland, Mary Poppins, Aladdin, Annie, School of Rock, Charlie Brown, etc. They will also participate in theater games, learn improvisation, and may learn light choreography to go with their song and scenes. This is a must for any theatre lover, dancer or singer! A strong focus is placed on confidence building and allowing children to be fully self expressed in a safe, fun and supportive environment. The semester ends with a fun performance of the best moments from the class.**PLEASE NOTE: We have live accompaniment in many classes. Your kids are working with a musician who plays, reads and teaches music in addition to their regular teacher. 
**We periodically try to bring in special guests from a current Broadway show.

Age: 7 to 11 years
Duration: 13 hours

We've been doing classes with Jeff and Melissa since my daughter was 3.5 - and we LOVE them. They are patient, funny, kind and really know how to engage with the kids. My daughter was really shy at first and they really helped bring her out of her shell - now she won't stop singing and dancing! Can't recommend I Can Do That NYC enough!!!

Jeff and Melissa know how to relate with all the kids. Very upbeat, fun and interactive. My son loved it and looked forward to going every morning!

Awesome class! My four year old son had the best time. It was a fun,safe,nurturing environment that allowed him to be creative and expressive. He can't wait to return and do it again in the fall.

Great opportunity for a 4 year old to channel theatrical energy. There aren't many options like this for younger kids.

Summer Dance/Theatre Camp

My 4-year-old granddaughter just danced out of her ballet class, happy, excited – and pointing her toes! Her teacher, the talented Melissa Swender-Schecter is a gifted teacher, caring and careful of her young students' bodies and spirits. My older granddaughter studied with the amazing Jeff Schecter and Melissa for many years, where Melissa and Jeff guided her introduction into theatre arts – dance, character development, learning the language of theatre and how to conduct oneself on stage. She thrived in the class and was prouder than proud of herself when she realized, I Can Do That!

Fun, diverse class for my 4 yr old! Great to have a class for the little ones that's real dance/theatre, and not the typical dumbed-down kiddie class.
