Studio Bleu Dance Center Vocal and Theatre Arts

Studio Bleu is proud to announce our vocal and theater arts programs!

Kim Rishi has always loved music and theater and that love has led her to bring on Tina Smothers as our theater arts and vocal director at Studio Bleu.
Meet our theater arts and vocal director.....
Tina Smothers is a sought after soloist, vocal coach, and theater instructor. She has been teaching voice for over 15 years and has taken lessons and training for over 18 years. She is comfortable teaching both contemporary and classical voice and she herself excels at both. She herself has won numerous awards and competitions including being a finalist in NATS and a Top Michigan Vocalist. Tina has been a sought after vocalist for many charity events and also major and minor league baseball games. Ms. Smothers has been sought after to do workshops for churches, schools, show choirs, and more. Her students have gone on to win many local competitions, have made it on American Idol, and have also been seen on shows like Rising Star and MTV’s Copycat. She is a songwriter who has helped write and co-produce numerous songs for other singers and her students. She is also a sought after vocal coach for recording sessions throughout the country and has worked with country, pop, r & b, gospel and opera singers. In addition, Tina has also been in numerous shows growing up and has always been active in theater productions. She is excited to also be bringing her knowledge of theater in our new theater arts program here at Studio Bleu!

Just a reminder that audition videos for Island Song are due by 11:59 pm!

Audition Call for our High School Only Production of Island Song.

Audition videos should
be sent to Miss Tina or emailed to [email protected]

Please prepare 1:30 of any Broadway song as well as a 1:00 monologue. All audition recordings are due Friday, September 14th. Rehearsal times will be based on student availability. Performances will be January 11th and 12th.

A poignant, off-beat dramedy with a kinetic pop-rock score (boasting 7 MAC-nominated songs), ISLAND SONG takes us through a year in the lives of five twenty-and-thirty-somethings sharing a city and the chain of surprising, poignant, and partially random connections that bring them into each other’s spheres at moments that become pivotal. As the city pulses around them, they all must work through their own complex relationships with ambition, distraction, and the search for connection.

Fall productions start this week! Come and join us. Also we have spots available for both vocal and acting lessons. Feel free to pm us with any questions!

One more announcement for our Musical Family! We are so excited to announce Nellie Edwards as our new teaching assistant. Nellie will be helping Miss Tina with Saturday lessons and other vocal events.

Nellie is so excited to be the assistant vocal teacher at SBVTA.
From Nellie:
Throughout these past four years with Tina I have grown so much vocally and with my stage presence. Getting to know two different worlds of singing through choir at school and vocal groups at studio bleu has been eye opening to the wide range of performance opportunities that the singing world has to offer. Also my involvement with school musicals, studio bleu productions, and other performance opportunities have continued to help me grow as an artist and as a person. I am so excited to be able to give back to others what confidence and skill I have received through this program!

We are so excited to welcome Kristin to our Bleu family! Kristin will be working with Miss Tina in our Theatre department and will be helping with productions as well as teaching private acting lessons. We loved having her help us the first week of Legally Blonde Jr. and we are so excited to have her with us!

Kristin Zipprich is a recent graduate of Christopher Newport University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre and a concentration in Acting. Notable performances of hers include Rosalind Franklin in TheaterCNU’s Photograph 51 and Eurydice in Antigone. She has been dancing all her life and trained with Encore Performers in Chantilly, VA. This past summer, Kristin choreographed and helped direct Seussical at Centerstage Academy in Yorktown. She is so excited to be working with Studio Bleu, and looks forward to meeting you all!

We are so excited to announce our fall productions! Come and join us! (Audition information for Island Song coming soon!)

On Father’s Day the rural area of the Upper Peninsula, that our very own Miss Tina calls home had catastrophic flooding. It wiped away homes, businesses and roads. They have yet to receive help and are going to need much. We are helping put together a gift card drive for the people of the UP. Please bring gift cards to Walmart (the only major store in the area) to the studio this week. Miss Tina will be delivering the cards to families in need when she goes there the first week of July. Let’s show our Bleu support for the people of the Houghton/Hancock area of Michigan. #sisu #yooperstrong #bleunation
