Join Alison Bogatay, Choreographer for LTM’s upcoming fall production of The Addams Family, for a fun & fiery dance workshop! This class is designed to embrace the sensibilities of this energetic & character-driven musical. Students will learn “must know” steps used in musical theater choreography and basic soft shoe while emphasizing the powerful, angular & quirky moves required for this stylized show. Additionally, they will explore Spanish Flamenco & Tango styles, also necessary for these beloved characters. Both ideal for the dead ringers of Addams family Ancestors as well as performers/students that have had some dance experience and are eager for more detailed training or help in preparing for auditions!
