Class Descriptions

Musical Theater

Phil’s class lives in a cross-section of theatricality, musicality, style/technique, and showmanship. After a jazz-based warm-up structured to engage the body and focus minds, dancers will learn choreography in one of the various styles that musical theater requires of them in the contemporary landscape. Phil aims to help dancers understand how music and its intricacy can inform character and storytelling, all while giving them the space to explore different ways of approaching theater dance—and hopefully having fun on the way.
