Choreography is the notion of placing steps together in a sequence either with or without music. The ability to choreograph and improvise is a very important skill to have in the industry.
Students will learn to identify different styles of music as well as the ability to count music. In the 90 minute workshop students will also learn the tools to act on impulse and gain the ability to improvise. This will further their choreographic skills.
