SERIES#1 Creating and Refining a Solo: Nov.1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd

In this series you will learn original choreography and refine your performance technique. We will create a solo dance number which will be set to 4 different styles of music. This will illustrate how basic movements can be adapted to different themed acts (classic, modern, comedic, etc.). You will learn how to add and subtract sections of choreography so you can piece together and create your own exciting solo performance piece. You can take just one class, or all four, or just walk in! But it's best to Paypal in advance to reserve your spot, since class limit is 15 students. Special discount for those who pay in advance for all 4 classes.

Series #2 Working in a Group: November 29th and December 6th, 13th and 20th

Learn to work in a group setting as a team. The focus of this class will be on learning to count music, staying in sync with others and timing. Learning to dance in a group as a team is a valuable skill all serious performers should master. Students taking this class will be invited to rehearse and perform at a local Burlesque event with Twinkle Toes McGee. Due to the group nature of this series students must attend all four classes.
