This course is designed for the musical theater performer who titles themselves as “more a mover than a dancer” and how to best navigate and walk away from any dance call feeling confident and proud. Whether it is inability to pick up choreography, understanding style/technique or just feeing uncomfortable moving their body that way, this class will tackle all of these common issues.
Each week, students will be lead through a short ballet barre focusing on the fundamentals of technique, an efficient jazz warm up to improve flexibility and body awareness and a comprehensive across the floor to address footwork and dance vocabulary that can feel overwhelming. The second half of class will be a faux dance call that changes in style every week while dissecting different methods of retaining choreography and interpret iconic musical theatre styles, including tap!
By the end of this course, Cameron hopes students will be able to eliminate any uncertainty or dread when attending a dance call and to instead instill an amount of confidence and pride to find their inner triple threat!
