AMY WRIGHT PRESENTS

  • BEAST WORKSHOPS - Bring the Beat - Special Event

~ For Male & Female dancers!





BEAST WORKSHOPS ARE:

*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 = we are never going to record the top 5 dancers for IG or youtube as they “perform"

*Small classes with one on one attention from the staff

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

*Dance training AND acting training AND audition techniques AND making connections all in one place.

*Age 12-Adult* However, those youth with exceptional skills are welcome to attend

The NOV 25 “Special Event” Bring the Beat features a brilliant faculty and never before classes offered for beasts with a live professional drummer accompanying and creating with us, and a public speaker/motivational coach who is know for empowering athletes both physically and mentally!

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

  • BOY BAND / GIRL GROUP *with Jamie Hodgins: NO SINGING required. Beasts will receive a link to music one week before the event to get to know the lyrics to "lip sync" along during this REVOLUTIONARY NEW CLASS a #beastexclusive! Choreography will contain only the best music video and concert style moves to reflect what it is like to be in a BOY BAND/GIRL GROUP or dancing and singing back up alongside the biggest popstars of today. If you "cannot" sing, don’t worry we wont hear you. You will NEVER be asked to sing without the music blaring. I cannot WAIT to see how this class turns out.

  • CHOREOGRAPHY * with Amy Wright accompanied by Professional Drummer JOEL JACOBS: Amy is creating Beast Quality routines using LITERALLY THE COOLEST, SEXIEST, LOUDEST MUSIC on the planet = LIVE DRUMS! A different routine will be taught for the BEAST BOYS AND GIRLS in a style that simply hasn't been done at a BEAST WORKSHOP to date. I am SUPER STOKED about this one.

  • "BE THE BEAST: EMPOWERING THE ARTIST" with Dan Blackburn: Dan is second to none when it comes to his public speaking and work as a trainer. He is the best at creating physical power in his athletes (who train at his gym) and he empowers youth and elite athletes for success with his inspiring conversations (around the country). I believe if you want to rise to the top of this business you need to hear this guy talk! This is a special bonus for BEASTS - do not miss this. PARENTS are welcome to attend.

  • BEAST BEATS (aka STOMP) with Shawn Byfield: This class is being designed for BEAST WORKSHOPS. Amy has been asked by many beasts for a tap workshop, but, not all beasts can tap and its super hard to learn in one class. Amy approached Shawn to create a class combinging elements of tap, hip hop and body percussion (like they did in them musical STOMP). Adding Joel Jacobs to the mix makes this even better! The live music mixed with all the elements of dance Shawn will bring is going to be incredilble!!!!! This piece will fuse the best of Shawn's brilliant choreo, Joel's incredible beats, and the talents of the BEASTS in the room. It is unique to us - you. Can you tell I am excited????

  • #NOTDANCE with Amy Wright: For BEAST WORKSHOPS Amy has ensured each day has some NOTDANCE class offered for the well rounded performer. Giving you a taste of acting, monologue work, scene study, commercial techniques. Amy is feeling out the tone of the day and will create this class for the MAXIMUM benefit of the Beasts in attendance. It will be the best NOTDANCE class and will challenge you, inspire you and get you thinking outside of your box. I truly want to help everyone have THE BEST experience. This is my passion project. I was inspired and helped by so many of my mentors - this is my pay it foward workshop.
