Catherine leads you in a fun-filled Musical Theatre experience that focuses on performance techniques, personality, dance technique and story telling through dance.
The class begins with a warm-up based in yoga, ballet and jazz techniques and follows through with center work, jumps, turns and leaps. Throughout the class Catherine will ask you why you are dancing, what you want and how will you get it? These questions are just as important as the dance technique we focus on. The class will draw from the styles of classic choreographers including Jack Cole, Bob Fosse and Michael Bennett as well as contemporary influences seen on the stages of current Broadway productions. The class culminates in a musical number performance in the Spring that is both thrilling to watch and delightful to perform.
