"When the emotion becomes too strong for speech, you sing; when it becomes too strong for song, you dance." Broadway musicals have often used dance to physically show characters' emotions, create fantasies, or take audiences to faraway places, but most importantly to enhance the storytelling of the plot. Learn how to use dancing and movement to tell a story, using songs from popular musicals such as Matilda, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. Students will also work on basic dance skills, how to learn/perform choreography as a group, and they will also experience an audition workshop. Students should wear dance-friendly clothing, and either jazz shoes or danceable sneakers/flats. Classes begin the week of Sept 25th and run through the week of December 4th.
