BEAST BOYS BRING THE HEAT DANCE WORKSHOP SERIES



WHY AM I DOING THIS?

This workshop came about because I have seen plenty of male dancers across Ontario at The Next Step auditions.

I have discovered that boys need other boys to influence them and up their game.

Many of the younger male dancers are needing that push that they don’t get in their own studio because there are limited numbers of male instructors and peers in the dance world.

They are amazing dancers but only have one skill set, or don’t know how to learn the next jump or trick.

OR they are already awesome and well rounded but these guys want to learn new skills.

I want to help them make connections with other males and also to help them really stand out and WOW clients at castings.

As a bonus they get to work with me and receive personal dance instruction from some phenomenal instructors/artists. The maximum size for each workshop is 50 people, with half the day spent in classes of 25 dancers only! SUPER INTIMATE so you can LEARN and truly develop skills.

BEAST BOYS IS:

*Less focused on combos and full routines and more focused on giving you a vocabulary

*Intent on bringing as many styles to you BEASTS so that you will know how to handle ANY audition scenario

*Guidance to learn new skills or progressions so you can take them HOME to improve upon.

*Teaching and Learning over Performing

*Small classes with one on one attention from the staff

*Never going to recording the top 5 dancers for IG or youtube as they “perform"

*A place to learn, to make mistakes and to feel safe

*For the community of bros - yes, I just made that up - the C.O.B. - LOL - but seriously I want you all to inspire one another!!!
