Build Confidence, Overcome Stage Fright, and Have a Ball by Joining a Group Performance Class at the Center for Musical Arts in Lafayette, Colorado
Have you ever felt drawn to musical theater? Do you sing around the house and wonder what it would be like to join a group of others who love musical theater, too? Or maybe you loved performing when you were younger, but haven’t had an opportunity to step into the spotlight for some time. Either way: these are the classes for you!
There’s something really special about coming together with a group of fun-loving, creative, and supportive people to develop performance skills. The Center for Musical Arts’ new classes, Broadway Bloomers and How to Act a Song, are focused exactly on that: you will learn how to perform in a safe and welcoming environment, and have a great time while you’re at it!
Yes, you will overcome stage fright (many of us have done it!) Yes, you’ll get to sing some of your favorite musical theater songs, sometimes in costume, always on a stage, with other musicians! Of course, you’ll also forge close connections with the other people in the class because theater tends to nourish deep, long-lasting bonds.
Perhaps most importantly, you’ll develop self-confidence and learn to manage the very natural feelings and physical sensations that arise related to standing up in front of a group of people and performing. You’ll finish the semester feeling like a shining star.

We’ve brought together two powerhouses in the Colorado musical theater space to lead these classes, Tamara Meneghini and John Boggs.
Instructor Tamara Meneghini is Theatre & Dance faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder. A seasoned stage actress and director, her credits include Company (UC Boulder), and Heroes of the Fourth Turning (Curious Theatre), and she is currently directing The Revolutionists at CU Boulder. She will lead a Saturday morning class focused on performance skills in musical theater.
Director John Boggs is a passionate and multi-talented musician, with mastery as a pianist, composer, and vocalist. His original composition work has been premiered by the American Symphony Orchestra, Colorado Children’s Chorale, Arts Nova, and the Da Capo Chamber Players. He brings his expertise to a Wednesday night musical theater class that will culminate in a community performance!
What do these world-class artists share in common with you? A passion for musical theater and a desire to build community with those who share the same interests. Throughout the duration of these classes, participants thrive as they learn from each other, grow together, and take supported risks to stretch and expand as artists. You will love the sense of camaraderie, open-heartedness, and personal self-expression that these classes create.
There’s a space with your name on it — we’re waiting for you to take the leap and join us on this exciting musical adventure! Don’t hesitate — classes start soon!
