Young Columbians

Class Information


Broadway Performance Prep
This brand new class will teach young performers
everything they need to succeed in our performance
troupes and professional camps. Students will learn
the theatrical style that has become a Young
Columbians trademark and won acclaim throughout
the metropolitan area. Combine the styles of Glee
and The Sing Off in this ensemble based class that
will integrate both vocal stylizing and choreography
in order to bring to life music and storytelling for
audiences. This year long class will culminate in a
final performance that will be fun for the whole family.

Young Columbians
The Young Columbians will be restructured for the
2014-2015 school year.
Members of this group will learn all 3 shows in the
Young Columbians repertoire; working with Young
Columbians musical director and director to learn
the stylistic skills unique to the Young Columbians
shows. The Young Columbians group has many
performance opportunities locally and regionally
throughout the year, based on avaliablity.

Elite Performing Troupe
Students selected for this program will be active
members of The Young Columbians who will
rehearse and perform with the troupe. They will
also spend a portion of each rehearsal rehearsing,
and then performing a full-length Broadway musical
in order to heighten their theatrical education.
Members will continue to review all 3 shows in the
Young Columbians repertoire, acting as mentors
to Young Columbians. They will be cast in,
rehearse, and perform a full length Broadway
musical in order to challenge themselves and
integrate the skills they have learned throughout
Young Columbians into a traditional piece.
Members will have the opportunity to take on
advanced roles such as dance captain, new
member trainer, and stage manager.
