Back to Basics – Dance (Musical Theatre/Dance)
“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work” Emile Zola
Would you like to build your confidence in dance and over-come your fears?
Are you ready to develop your dance skills from the firmest of foundations?
Are you a dancer looking for an opportunity to improve your understanding and application of dance technique?
If so, this course is totally in step with your aspirations…
We are throwing open the doors to those who want to dance and who are passionate about improving their technique. It is also ideal for more experienced dancers who want to go back to key foundations and principals to make sure they are dancing to their best potential.
During the week you will:
- look at the importance and application of sound dance technique to all forms of dance
- understand how to build your strength and stamina in dance
- ensure your technique will extend your longevity as a dancer
- develop your understanding and application of energy levels and movement quality
- explore a variety of dance styles and genres
This is a practical fun course where students will explore dance and the importance of technique with an experienced and inspirational teacher. Please be aware that there is a lot of physical movement involved in this course, so a good degree of fitness is required.
