4-Part Series for the Dance Teacher
Musical Theatre Mayhem
available on demand
This four-part series is created for dance-teaching enthusiasts who LOVE instilling the passion of live theatre, Broadway, & movie musicals into their classroom setting. Each class will feature a warm-up, progressions, and a different combo, with modification options for beginning, intermediate, & advanced dancers.
Intro to Broadway
In this first session, we dip our big toe into the pool of musical theatre & Broadway. Perhaps we just need to get a few more dancers on board that Broadway-bound train? Hakuna Matata! We will focus on class structure, content, & fun ice-breakers to shake up the current jazz-based class your dancers may already be attending.
Theatre: Then & Now
In the next class, we begin to allow our dance-loving students to wade in the pool of theatre by encouraging them to explore/research historical & contemporary content. Ballet, Tap, Hip-Hop, Acrobatics, Ballroom (& more) are ALL part of live theatre & and a robust entertainment experience. The show must go on, so you might as well make ‘em laugh!
Musical Theatre Deep Dive
In the third session, we are now really swimming! After warm up, it’s time for across the floor & transition steps galore. Triplets, grapevines & lindy’s…oh my! It’s a whole new world, even though; everything old is new again!
It’s now time to really dive into the fun & excitement that theatrical jazz can offer our students. This session will cover pointers, tips, & tricks on bevels, training in character heels safely, and the importance of style, presence & showmanship.
- 15-minute Q & A for live participants
- Includes handouts for each lesson that will help you bring each session into your classroom!
