Do you have a passion for dance and want to learn how to teach others? This class will open your eyes to how "5, 6, 7, 8" can turn into a standing ovation! In this class, learn to choreograph for musical theater and the difference between choreographing for solo, group, and recital pieces. Learn how to effectively teach choreography for a dance class, camp, or simply learn basic fundamentals of choreographing for the stage.
I have been involved in the arts for as long as I can remember...from singing to dancing, playing instruments, choreographing, teaching and even conducting orchestras. I have both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Music Education, with a focus on instrumental music. My first experience with CYT was as a parent in 2013 when my oldest daughter started taking CYT (then Spotlight) classes and then later was cast in her first show that year. In 2016, my daughter and I were cast in a local theater's production of "The Music Man," and loved having the experience of working together in theater. So, after 7 CYT shows serving as a parent volunteer, I started directing, & choreographing shows and also teaching CYT classes. I love being involved, either way, especially meeting so many parents and students, who have become a 2nd family to us.
