Jazz/Musical Theatre Classes

As a performing Arts student, our aim is alway to become better at what we do, so what better than going to a Jazz/Musical theatre dance Class.

The dance class I attend is at Rare Studios, Liverpool. It's every Friday 7-8pm and it's only £3.

Each week we work on different co-ordernation to help imporve our dancing, week one we did a routine to Footloose: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMFZEAJSgEo we don't do the full song as the class isn't about the dancing its about the techniques to help us become stronger dancer. 

Footloose: is a 1984 American musical drama film directed by Herbert Ross. It tells the story of Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon), an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to a small town in which, as a result of the efforts of a local minister (John Lithgow), dancing and rock music have been banned.

This week we did "You Can't Stop The Beat" From Hairspray! As this choreography has partner work in, it will be continued after the easter holidays as Rare is now shut for easter, watch the dance so far:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OU0a07YUBM 

Hairspray:is an American musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray. The songs include 1960s-style dance music and "downtown" rhythm and blues. In 1962 BaltimoreMaryland, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight, and meets a colorful array of characters. She then launches a campaign to integrate the show. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s.
