Intermediate Dance Performance Styles & Technique (Winter/Spring 2020)

Dance for Teens and Kids
Intermediate Dance Technique

Ages: 5th-8th Grade


This high-intensity class will give you the tools to pick up choreography across multiple styles of dance. The dance company staff has created a one-of-a-kind curriculum designed to improve student’s technique while building their dance vocabulary. Each class incorporates a warm up focused on stretching, strengthening and placement. Across the floor combinations are broken down to help each student develop a deeper understanding of jumps, turns and kicks. Throughout the course of the semester students will have the opportunity to study under various choreographers in the areas of theater jazz, latin jazz, ballet, contemporary, classical jazz and hip hop. This class is a game changer for students interested in auditioning for Musical Theater Company A!
