MUSTHEAT 1002 - Music Theatre Performance 1B

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2019

Ballet: Further development in postural alignment, strength, flexibility, coordination and musicality incorporating barre work and centre work continue. Pas de deux will continue to be incorporated into this class. Jazz: Core engagement and proper alignment continue to be a focus. This class will incorporate stretching techniques, turning, isolation and complementary movement as well as the interpretation of various historic and contemporary dance pieces. Tap: Students continue work on coordination, rhythmic variations, and performance skills through a series of tap combinations and exercises. This class includes the ?breaking down? of various steps as well as teaching tap vernacular. Rhythm and counting are also covered. Voice/Movement: This class will focus on consolidating and extending the foundations from which the student actor can integrate a released and open sound, and then connect that sound to voice, speech and song. Students will work within class and independently to develop skills that invite: - an authentic body/voice connection, - a critical understanding of language and text - an integration of acting into song. Acting: This course is designed to extend the student?s awareness of the performing self. Building on foundational acting and voice skills begun in Semester 1, the focus will now be on translating and applying these skills to the written text. Students will be given a variety of strategies for approaching written texts, beginning with a fundamental understanding of text analysis: how a text may be mined for relevant information; how this information can be ordered and translated into rehearsal strategies; how it may ultimately be utilised in performance.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
