What will you be working on in the class?

In this class we will be working on how to pick up choreography (no worries, it will be simple!) quickly on our feet and how to quickly switch gears to sing from your book of music. The class will mimic what happens in a dance call with singing callback. Confidence is key!

What should students prepare for the class?

Students should be prepared to learn 4 counts of 8. Students should also prepare 16-32 bars of a song of their choosing.

Do you have any tips for preparing to perform in a masterclass/audition setting?

Come with an open mind and any thought of perfection... throw it out the window! This is a chance to not only learn and grow, but to figure out who you are as an individual/performer and what you bring to the table. There is no one else like you!
