||25 September - 13 October
We will be focusing on the musical theatre side of jazz with three workshop style sessions.
- Week 1 - We will focus on a dance from La La Land. This is a very typical musical style so expect lots of pirouettes, kicks and jazz hands! The aim of this is to get down to the routes of jazz technique and ensure the basics are secure.
- Week 2 - We will be learning a routine from Chicago. This famously sexy musical theatre number will help to bring out the performer in you whilst also focusing on your line extension
- Week 3 - We will be learning a routine from Legally Blonde the musical. This will combine both of the previous classes into one, in a dance which requires clean technique and heaps of performance and sass!
||16 October - 3 November
