Broadway Storytelling with Telly Leung (star of Aladdin on Broadway)

Thursday, October 8, 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Performing arts is about PROCESS and not RESULT. It’s about the “journey” and not the “destination.” An artist is never done evolving and learning. In this class, explore how to tell a clear, connected, emotionally-engaging story through song.

Participants will engage in a conversation about where they are in their artistic process, and engage in exploration exercises as we discuss what next steps they should take to grow and continue evolving artistically. Auditors will be as engaged in this exploration as the students who are performing. Students should come prepared with their 32 bars or full song (memorized) from their rep and come with an open mind / heart / spirit. Let’s explore and grow TOGETHER.

Knowing the basics of efficient and resonant sound production is crucial to developing a healthy voice, belt voice, and stamina.
