A practical and gentle approach to theatrical dance for those of us who missed the whole ballet-lessons-since-age-three boat. Taught with warmth and humor by Donald Garverick, choreographer and co-creator of Show Choir! - The Musical.
Donald Garverick began his dance training when he was in his teens under the guidance of Broadway choreographer, Robert Tucker (Shenandoah) who taught him the American Dance Machine technique (ADM). Since 1996, Donald has performed in many regional, summer stock, national tour, and Off-Broadway productions. Early in his performing career, he was asked to join the other side of the creative team by becoming an assistant choreographer and dance captain. After assisting on numerous projects, including Off-Broadway's Area 51 - The Musical and NYMF 2012's Foreverman, he now choreographs on his own. Recent directing/choreography credits include the 2010 NYMF production of Show Choir! - The Musical (www.showchoirthemusical.com - which Donald co-wrote as well,) Before God Was Invented: A Prehistoric Pagan Parable at Theatre for the New City, and the current Off-Broadway run of Siren's Heart: The Marilyn Monroe Musical at The Actor's Temple.
