About This Session
Session A — 1:00 pm • Session B — 3:00 pm
In this workshop, students will experience what a Broadway rehearsal is really like. They will first, gather around the piano and learn a song then they will put that song to choreography from a Broadway show. Tiffany was given about a week to learn all of her music and choreography for Wicked and she will walk the students through that same experience. They will learn the importance of creating a character, how to pick up steps and memorize music and choreography quickly. This master class is the essence of being a triple threat! Sing, Dance, and Act all at that same time! As with any open casting call, all level performers are invited.
