The Laurier Conservatory is thrilled to announce that registration is now open for the very first WLU Music Theatre Academy. This three-week professional training program is designed for classically-trained singers who want to hone their skills in acting, dance and belt/mix vocalization.
Successful applicants will attend classes Monday through Friday in acting improvisation and text, Alexander Technique, Feldenkreis and appropriate dance styles. Regular lessons, coachings and master classes with crossover voice teachers will develop healthy belt/mix techniques. Instructors will join us from The Stratford Festival, Sheridan College, WLU’s Faculty of Music, and elsewhere.
One song in musical theatre style is required. You will be contacted for an audition time after registration. Digital audition submission may be accepted upon request. Limited spots are available. Successful applicants will be notified by email.

Performances will take place at The Jazz Room in Waterloo.
