Do you get a pit in your stomach when you walk into a dance audition? Do you struggle to pick up all the choreography in the short amount of time? Then this is the class for you. CYT has offered dance audition prep classes before, but never like this. This class will be 100% based off technique, because dance is all about the technique. Ballet technique is the foundation of all dance. Therefore, the first half of class each week will be dedicated to learning and perfecting ballet technique. The second half of class is where you get to put what you learned to test. Each week the class instructor will spend the second half of class teaching choreography. (students in class will learn a new combination every week). In a dance audition, choreographers are looking at a dancers technique and how quickly the routine is picked up. The structure of this class will allow students to work on both areas simultaneously ensuring they grow and become more comfortable with the dance audition process.
Bailey Vincent-LaBarbera (Bailey Anne Vincent) has been teaching and choreographing for over a decade, with favorite styles being ballet, contemporary, Pointe and tap (but, you know, wedding dancing is pretty cool too). After growing up and performing with a pre-professional company in South Florida, she moved to Virginia as a teen and studied as a soloist with the Rockbridge Ballet. Featured in Dance Teacher Magazine for her work with special needs and deaf children, she was a long-running staff member for TheStudio in Lexington, and now performs as a professional modern dancer with DanceArtTheater in Falls Church/DC metro area. She loved choreographing CYT's performance of White Christmas, and can't wait for future projects to come! She is obsessed with macaroni and cheese, coffee, and every formula of mascara known to man (or woman), and is mildly obsessed with all alternative rock from the 90's.... except Creed and Nickleback, obviously.
