DANCE!

Beginners

No dance experience necessary. For those with 2 or fewer years dance training.

 

Practice your musical theatre skills! Learn a group dance set to music from a well known musical. The choreography will require some acting as well as dancing, meaning students will learn to combine the two into a spectacular number. This number will then be performed at the showcase. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to get into musical theatre and maximise their chances in a dance audition.
