Class Description

Each week, we'll explore a different style of dance by learning choreography at the pace and style that we use for auditions and callbacks for shows. We'll also work on some fundamental elements of dance including ballet, jazz, tap, African dance, and more! By combining a focus on the basics and learning choreography at a fast pace, you're sure to improve your dance skills and become more confident as you approach your next audition!  

Each week, we'll record the choreography that we learn and at the end of the session, we'll have a full video collage of all the styles we learned! 

Shoes needed: Jazz shoes (If you have tap shoes and ballet shoes, you can also have those on hand, but they are not required.)

If we have to transition away from in-person learning during the session, this class will continue online via live instruction and through the use of digital media.
