Musical Theater Dance for Actors Who Move
Dance auditions can be intense and intimidating, but they don't have to be! This class is geared towards the actor that is a mover, but would like to strengthen and improve their dance technique and auditioning skills. Structured as an audition, each class will teach Broadway-inspired choreography and focus on strengthening jazz fundamentals, learning to capture choreography details, improvisation, and how to give your best dance audition.
You must be 18 years or older to attend this class. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
Masks are still required at The Armory, but we no longer require proof of vaccination to attend performances and events. FULL DETAILS HERE
