YABC: About YABC Classes

Thank you again for a wonderful experience. YABC is the highlight of [our son’s] week, and we are thrilled that he has found himself in a peer group who look after each other, encourage each other and are able to laugh, and with mentors who are able to nurture his love of performing.” Parent

We can help you unlock the confidence to share your natural performing skills with the world. YABC Alumni grace the stages of musical theatre productions around the world.

The YABC teaching methodology places an emphasis on creative drama as a means to developing performing skills. We believe it is important to turn our students into talented musical theatre performers in song, dance and drama. Our repertoire is chosen according to the age and level of each group, placing a focus on the skills students are developing.

All YABC students attend a weekly class, which is divided into sessions with a Musical Director, Dance Director and Drama Director.  Each of these sessions follows a similar format:

  • Warm Up (safe dance and vocal warm-ups, focus exercises in Drama).
  • Skill Work (diction and range exercises in voice, flexibility, coordination and specific steps in dance, various theatre games and activities in drama).
  • Repertoire Rehearsal (rehearsals for upcoming performances).

Song and Dance performance repertoire is selected from the musical theatre and popular music canons.

Entry level (Training) rehearsals are 2 – 2.25 hours in duration. Performing level rehearsals are 3 hours in duration, and also include tap dance in the curriculum.

"I often think about how lucky [our son] is to have found his "tribe".  As a teenage boy making his way in the world, the friendships and support he gets from YABC  is just so valuable.  He is a happy, well-grounded young man who has good self-esteem and wonderful role models - and we don't take these things for granted at all."
