From the Studio of Dan Callaway - May Musical Theatre Workshop
During May, we will build on the dance foundation we began in April, with a full dance experience taking you from the first dance call, through rehearsal, and then to the performance. Broadway dance captain and performer Angel Creeks will teach you the skills you need for every aspect of the process. You’ll learn how to train your brain and body to pick up choreography quickly; know what choreographers are looking for; how to sell an imperfectly danced combination; dance etiquette for the audition and rehearsal environments, and concrete tools for how you can actually enjoy yourself. This workshop is for dancers of all skill levels, featuring two ensemble numbers with original Broadway choreography. The month will end with a small showcase for friends and kind-hearted industry folk.
Dates: Tues May 7, Wed May 15, Tues May 21, Tues May 28 (7-10pm)
