The term "Triple Threat Performer" can be very intimidating when training to be a musical theatre performer.
In Jorieography workshops, being a triple threat performer doesn't mean having to be the best singer, dancer, or actor in the room. It means being the best singer, dancer, AND actor YOU can be.
We are all unique, and we bring our own gifts to the table. Our job is to dedicate ourselves fully and equally to ALL elements of showmanship so that we are the most well rounded performers that we can be.
Overall Educational Goals for Workshops:
Build knowledge and appreciation for specific musical theatre styles
Apply knowledge of show styles to elements of showmanship - singing, dancing, acting
Enhance ability to create characters to promote effective storytelling
Develop an understanding of one's own triple threat skills and voice as a performer
Identify and apply the fundamental skills to effectively learn the music, pick up choreography quickly, and analyze a character
Learn from the given tools and rehearse within a self-structured timeline
Students will work with materials from one particular musical theatre show which will give them insight into the show's vocal, choreographic, and writing styles. Singing, dancing, and acting will each be worked on separately before combining all triple threat elements in the final week.
Students will focus on learning a brief cut from a song within a different musical each week. All of these musical cuts involve singing, dancing, and acting at the same time in order to work on stamina, understand the importance of each element, and above all, to stretch those triple threat muscles!
