Twenty five Musical Theatre Dance Workshops for Grades 4,5, and 6 took place during April and May 2021.  Students were learning remotely due to health protocols in place re the pandemic.

About the Workshop:
The Artist’s approach – This Musical Theatre workshop is a jazz-based class filled with a mixture of broadway style dance and music. It will begin with a warm up with some familiar pop songs to get the students moving and ready to learn a dance combination. The dance combination will consist of some jazz, musical theatre, and a little bit of hip-hop.

All levels. No dance experience required.

This is a fun and exciting class for both students and teachers to attend!
