Be on the stage and learn about what happens backstage to create those flawless dance sequences seen on stage and screen. Students will learn basic rhythms and basic steps from jazz, modern and other forms of dance. Each day we will choose a number from a different show (either Disney or Broadway) and work individually and in groups to learn a new dance routine, design our costumes and have a mini daily performance. We will view professional recordings of broadway musicals for inspiration. Bring your dancing shoes!
