Not just another dance class! Danielle offers a unique perspective on Dance for Theatre.
SYNOPSIS: Danielle will not only be teaching basic steps used in a variety of styles in musicals, but also sharing tips for how to excel at dance auditions (it’s not just doing the steps perfectly), learn and retain choreography, and bring you to the next level in your stage dancing. She will also be fielding all the questions you’ve ever wanted to ask about musical theatre dancing, but didn’t have a chance to. Join us for a fun weekend of dancing and learning how to be the best stage dancer that you can be!
