Registration

  • We are not a group that performs musical selections. In fact, we actually build our concerts and we begin the process by choosing a story that will serve as the foundation.

    Over the next months, our director researches and writes the story while weaving in songs and photographs that will support the telling. Members of the group are invited to participate in the building by sharing ideas, exploring song arrangements, and creating/engaging in choreography that will also support the telling.

    A few more months are spent putting on the finishing touches and when all is built and ready, we invite the larger community to come and experience the story.

    Working toward our next performance, in this session we will continue to build a simulated live radio broadcast called “Alberta Afternoon.” This show will include song, dance, commercials and skits. Reading music, dance, acting and/or previous experience is not required - only a willingness to explore the possibilities!

Course Description:

Completion of our 10 th Anniversary Show in December 2022 means that we will be welcoming new members to join the Perfectly Imperfects in January 2023!

Working toward a performance in the spring of 2024, in this session we will begin building a new show, which may include song, dance, commercials, and skits.  Reading music, dance, acting and/or previous experience is not required – only a willingness to explore the possibilities!

Mondays 11:00 to 12:30 ($5.00 photocopy fee applies)

What equipment is required by the student to bring to class?

Binder, pencil, and eraser. Props may be required depending on what we are working on.

What clothing is required?

What level of competency should the student be at to attend this course?

 A willingness to explore the possibilities.

 No

Is this course available for drop-ins?

 Because a level of commitment is required to perform, participants are welcome to drop in for one class before making a commitment to be in the class.

Is there anything else you would like the students to know about your class? Because we are not a choir and we do not use sheet music, practice is required. We use recorded mp3 song tracks to learn and practice the songs and the parts. We lean more to the musical theatre genre and our performances take several sessions to come to completion.

 To sing is to risk. To sing is to allow oneself to be vulnerable. Therefore, it is essential that a warm, safe and supportive container be created in which to learn and grow. This is the responsibility of each person in the class.

 As in any group, issues do and will come up that need to be addressed:

Each participant is considered an equal and essential member of the class. Each is encouraged not to compare themselves to others, but to embrace where they currently are, set goals and with support, work toward those goals. There is no tolerance for bullying or gossip. When concerns arise, participants are to come directly to the instructor who will: Ask each participant to explore how their own behavior may impact the other, to be willing to listen to the other, and to take responsibility for their part. Ask the participants to work out issues face to face with each other in a respectful manner.

 Provide support/mediate conversations when required.
