MEMBERSHIP DANCE CLASS
(accompanied by creative drama)
The Inter dance class in ITW is a fun dance class that focuses on technique and performance. Students begin with a fast cardio warm up followed by a series of stretching exercises and strengthening of their arms, legs and core to facilitate strong dance technique. Students rehearse choreography through corner and centre work ranging from kicks to jumps to turns. Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Musical Theatre are some of the various styles of dance students learn.
Before Christmas students focus Technique of the Month which gives the class a new technique to focus on (i.e. feet positioning, posture, jumps, kicks, turns, etc.). Students will learn fun new routines from musicals such as Hairspray, Newsies, Wicked, and more. After Christmas students begin rehearsing for Musical Theatre Dance Exams and Performance Night.
