In this class, students will acquire the technique, stamina, and stage presence a performer needs for a show-stopping dance number. While improving their ability to tell a story through movement and capture the audience's attention, students will learn routines inspired by the groundbreaking choreography of dance icons Gene Kelly, Jerome Robbins, and Bob Fosse. Warm those "jazz hands" up and prepare to smile until your cheeks hurt as we rehearse for an awe-inspiring showcase!
*Students will need jazz shoes, preferably black, for this class*
*Please note: ~This class may meet on Tuesday, September 3rd, and NOT on Tuesday, October 15th, due to scheduling conflicts with the venue. (This is different than the other class locations, who will have the week of Labor Day off.) ~The showcase date has not yet been confirmed for this class, but will probably be held on Wednesday, October 23rd, most likely at FA.*
