Musical theatre class explores dance styles that would be used for Broadway musicals. In dance we experiment with acting out emotions, storytelling, and dramatics while performing strong dance moves. Musical theatre class time is used for a choreographed dance routine exploring a variety of performance levels and emotions. A background in ballet and/or jazz is recommended, beginners will benefit from taking the Technique: Dance Foundations either as a prerequisite or concurrently.
* Tuition is billed monthly
Technique: Tricks, Leaps, Turns, Floor work In our Dance Technique class you will be taught individual moves and tricks that would be used in a lyrical, contemporary or jazz dance routine. Categories of these moves include leg tricks, leaps across the floor, pirouettes and turns, and floor work.
Technique: Stretch Stretch class includes a series of poses designed to improve flexibility and strength. We focus on learning how to control our muscles and find our balance, which will benefit all styles of dance.
Technique: Dance Foundations Almost like a gallery of dance moves, the dance foundations class breaks down technique and explains in detail how to execute fundamental dance moves. This is class of building blocks designed for beginner dancers of all ages.
I started dancing with Ascension Dance simply because of Brianna Cernanec. I met her when she was the choreographer for Theatre Kent's: Mamma Mia! She is full of life and energy, and is also an AMAZING dance teacher that always keeps you having fun! I also decided to take online dance classes to broaden my dancing experience and to learn new types of dance. Since I work full time and would love to go through for a musical theatre education in the future, it's hard for me to get to a studio at certain times so having a class online that I can do anytime of the week sounded incredible!
