A True Triple Threat
It’s essential to find a musical theater
program that will build on your dance
training—but you don’t want one that
will let you fall back on it. “Don’t choose
a program that says, ‘You’re a great
dancer, so you don’t have to train as
hard in singing and acting,’ ” says
Jonalyn Saxer, a Syracuse University
graduate who’s currently a swing in
CATS on Broadway.
“Musical theater has helped me to find new ways to
look at dancing, especially choreography. Through
my acting classes I learned how to build relationships through character. It gave me a new perspective on dance, coming at it from a storyteller’s
point of view.”—Reagan Ogle, rising senior at Elon
Musical theater programs with slim dance offerings
may not be totally out of the question. If they’re
connected to a strong dance program that allows
musical theater majors to take classes or are
located in urban centers where local studios have
professional-level classes, you can supplement
your major requirements with extra training.
