Class Description

Ever go to a dance audition and get frustrated you don't process the information as quickly as others? Are you interested in integrating acting choices into the dance moves that others do? This class is for you! Class will focus on acting choices through technique with a focus on auditioning for musical theatre. Excursuses in class will be geared towards a mock-audition at the end of class with feedback. Emphasis on musicality, changes of emotion in dance, professional presentation of yourself, and use of humor in a dance combination to win over the people behind a table in auditions. Each class will be slightly different so come take all 3 or just 1. Together, we can unlock the best performer inside of you and be able to put your best foot forward in dance auditions.
