MUSICAL THEATRE DANCE MASTER CLASS
Come take this opportunity to work on technique and telling a story through performance with
BROADWAY CHOREOGRAPHER, DAVID MARQUEZ
For ages 14-19
Class will begin with a 25 minute warm-up designed to build your foundation and get you on your feet while warming up your body. Next, we will do some progressions across the floor starting with basic movement and then building up to more complicated movement, practice turns, and eventually jumps. From there, we begin working on a dance combination created by David that is rooted in Musical Theatre. This combination may have elements from ballet, jazz, folk, commercial movement or a variety of backgrounds but will be motivated by character and tell some sort of a story. We will then break into groups and work on the routine until the end of class focusing on technique and performance.
Dancers are asked to wear form fitting black dance clothes keeping away from logos and writing. Girls who have character shoes should bring them. Boys should have dance shoes. No sneakers or street shoes please.
DAVID is currently directing and choreographing a new Off-Broadway musical entitled Folk City. Broadway choreography credits include: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm and Stanley (at Circle in the Square). David was also on faculty at Broadway Dance Center for several years.
