Musical Theatre 'Broadway Style' Dance

Saturdays 12:00pm

 Beg/Int. to Intermediate Dancers & "Newsies" Prep

For the more experienced musical theatre student.

The goal of this class is conditioning the body in addition to building skills and technique. We begin with a heat building warm up, dedicated to proper stretching and cardio. Then we will incorporate skill-building combinations across the floor to improve on technique. As we build out choreography designed to challenge our students, we'll explore several styles of dance including ballet, jazz and tap. Many of the songs and choreography will be from the musical "Newsies." We will also provide assignments and inspiration for students to keep up their practice throughout the week, if they are inspired to do so. If you're looking to take yourself to the next level, you've come to the right place!
