Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: understand and demonstrate body awareness; practically apply dance technique; demonstrate a level 1 mastery of dance technique; and perform the craft of dance based on established and new choreography. 


This course is designed to train physical actors with the goal of enabling them to achieve awareness of speaking with their bodies and how dance and movement informs and supports them. The primary techniques of Ballet and Jazz, along with Modern and Total Body Workout are taught to enable actors to acquire the discipline, strength, stamina, and musicality required to accomplish this goal. Students participate in physical exercises and dance combinations that are progressively more advanced technically and stylistically.
