Workshop Description: A workshop designed for everyone from the beginner to advanced. It will consist of a warm-up and two audition sequences in contrasting styles of choreography. One will be the dance callback routine used in the dance callbacks. Through the process, there will be discussions about physical and mental preparation, basic dance skills, and the terminology every musical theatre performer should know. There will also be valuable answers to questions like "What should I wear?"; "Should I tell them I can't dance?"; "What are they looking for?"; and the ever-popular "If it's too difficult for me, can I leave?"
Requirements: People attending this workshop should have dance or sports wear that provides adequate coverage and does not restrict movement. Footwear should be jazz shoes, jazz sneakers, or athletic shoes with good support. If you tap, bring your tap shoes.
