Class Description

This 90 minute master class on May 16th is  for 14year olds and up. It will focus on the importance of dance within musical theatre.

Kelli Workman will present foundational ideas and techniques to help each student identify strengths in style and presentation as well as areas to grow.
A Pilates-based warmup will help bring awareness to the body, alignment, strength, and balance. Through Jazz-technique we will apply that awareness and gain deeper understanding of each individual body in movement. Finally, we will talk about ways to work at home (or anywhere!) that can truly create gains in dance technique.

Kelli is looking forward to bringing her wide-range of skills to the CYT community to help each student gain confidence in your body and what you are capable of!
