Description

This dance class is designed to teach students 8-12 how to move and experience space through dance. Most musicals feature a dance ensemble that is tasked with telling part of the story through dance. The styles vary from show to show, but most find their roots in jazz, ballet, modern or hip hop. This class teaches students choreography and dance elements that can be found in popular musical numbers and will prepare students who are interested in being cast as a dancer in a show. This class is lots of fun and will keep you moving!!
