Theatre dance focuses on storytelling through movement. In this 75-minute class, students will build stregth and awareness through a physical warm-up and then learn a dance combination to unlock creativity and intention within choreography. We will explore various styles within the Musical Theatre genre, using a wide range of songs from Kiss Me Kate to Six, and everything in between. Come move, express, and have fun in a supportive environment!
