Theatre Dance - Richmond Ballet

Theatre Dance

4-class course introducing musical theatre dance fundamentals

Intro to Adult Theatre Dance: Begin your journey into the world of theatre dance with this four-class session that teaches the fundamentals of movement, style, technique, and musicality. Each class will begin with a series of roll-downs and warmup exercises drawing from Horton technique, ballet, and jazz. Students will then progress across the floor with combinations challenging rhythm, patterns, and differing styles of theatre dance. The class will culminate with learning a piece of choreography from a classic Broadway musical, building each week during the session so students have a chance to process and stylize a longer section of choreography. Students will build confidence and character while also learning about the history of this dynamic movement style, as well as about the composers and choreographers who have shaped the art form. 

All levels welcome, no previous dance experience required! Feel free to join for each offering because we will plan to study a different musical with each session of Intro to Adult Theatre Dance! . Register for the in-person course under the Enrollments tab in MINDBODY.
