Sizzle! Intro to Fosse Style Dance

 

Fosse is best known for his signature jazz style which features sultry hip rolls, smooth finger snaps, turned-in pigeon toes and specific, detailed movements. This traditional jazz technique filled with panache and flair will give any new or experienced dancer a reason to bring out their saucy side.

Though learning Fosse’s style is clearly a must for future musical theater performers, it’s really an integral part of any dancer’s education, because Fosse’s influence goes way beyond Broadway. The student will have the opportunity to learn exact, unfiltered Fosse technique. The instructor has first-hand experience studying Fosse style jazz in New York with some of the foremost experts on the historic style.

No previous dance experience necessary.

Composing Dance – A Creative Art Experience

 

This class will focus on creating expressive movement placing value on individual interpretive instincts. The workshop will explore how movement expression is brought to life and students will learn tools for choreography development. We will investigate solo and group work informed by breath, gravity, musicality and imagery. Students will embark on a journey of self-discovery and be encouraged to vocalize what they like and what they don’t like choreographically and to accept the choices they make “in the moment.”

No previous dance experience necessary.

Mon. - Fri., August 15-19 - CANCELLED
5 - 6:30 pm
Room: 1117 (Dance Studio)
Register by June 6: $55
Register after June 6: $64
