Why take a movement class? It is important for all actors to be comfortable in their bodies and strong in their physicality so that they can take the stage with confidence! In this class we will focus on practices and exercises in body technique and stage movement with an emphasis on character movement and body control- but, most importantly, we’re going to have fun and prepare for our spring musicals!

Dance is one of the most expressive story-telling tools of the stage, and absolutely essential to a moving musical theatre experience! Beginner to advanced dancers will learn to use their whole bodies to portray characters and emotions with energy that captures an audience. The 6-week course will end with an ensemble performance of a high energy musical theatre dance number! (No vocals this time- let’s focus on the physical!) A great way to prepare for the high intensity dance shows this spring!
