Patrick Garr Broadway Dance Masterclass
Saturday, March 28th
In this online masterclass, students will learn combinations in the style of original Broadway musicals, while implementing fundamental technical elements and exploring storytelling through movement. Dancers will be challenged to explore their own artistic strengths in a safe space, while incorporating technical theatre dance repertoire to prepare students for a professional career on Broadway. All classes begin with a jazz warmup with a modern flare to challenge dancers in areas such as balance, agility, strength and technique, while additionally preparing the body for intense movement.
