KW Glee Development Classes

Fall Term Details (October 2024 to January 2025)

KW Glee offers development classes for select performers who may benefit from additional training before being ready for our Senior and Junior groups. The classes are smaller than the Senior and Junior groups, which allows for more personal attention and opportunities. There are three class levels – Teen, Intermediate, and Youth.

Students who audition for the Senior and Junior groups but may need some added training first may be places in the development classes. If there is space available, KW Glee may also open enrolment to performers who do not feel ready to do an audition yet and want a more recreational experience.

The material that is covered in the classes is at a similar level to the Senior and Junior groups, but the classes have their own concert designed to help the performers gain more confidence and experience as they work toward the goal of being in the KW Glee Junior and Senior performance groups in future.

Make sure you have read the full term schedule and commitment below before submitting an audition. Participants are permitted to miss up to three rehearsals only.
