Children love Acting, Singing and Dancing. There is a magical connection between young performers and musical theatre. Geelong Academy of Performing Arts (GAPA) is renowned for its exciting and challenging musical theatre tuition for children aged 5-16.
The only way for a child to soar is to give them the opportunity to spread their wings …
Open up a magic door and let your child’s imagination take flight. Musical Theatre classes at GAPA are designed to inspire, motivate and reward while always being creative and fun. They are a treasure box filled with fantasy, fairy tales, creativity and the magical world of make-believe.
Through acting, students develop skills in listening, speaking, taking turns and cooperation through playful and engaging activities. They sing and learn about the voice and how it works, how to stand, how to breathe, how to sing in tune and how to develop the confidence to expand the vocal range and increase the power of the voice. Students improve posture, balance and co-ordination through dance while developing confidence and the ability to work within a team.
Learning Musical Theatre at GAPA is educational, rewarding, and most of all fun. We have inspirational teachers, excellent facilities with three fully air-conditioned studios, we have our own ‘in-house’ theatre and we’re centrally located within Geelong’s exciting arts precinct.
It is our pleasure to share our knowledge, ideas, and love of acting, singing, dancing and performing, with our students. Helping your child understand how to interact with their peers is one of the best investments you’ll ever make in their future. GAPA’s studios are located at 1/37 Gheringhap Street, Geelong.
