Are you looking for a way to take your acting skills to a whole new level? Then this is the class for you! Incorporating dance into your theater training helps you to be more mentally alert, and focused. When you’re agile and responsive, you will move freely and be better able to use your imagination to become more expressive.  Dance will put you at ease with your body and physicality, which will, in turn, help you become more comfortable in both auditions and live performances. Dance will give you the power to communicate with a more natural ease and expression. The ability to create your character and have different emotions and attitudes in a scene is part of your actor’s toolbox. Dance will help you to convey these emotions through your body with ease. Join us and feel more empowered as an actor!
