Musical Theatre lovers from all backgrounds are invited to come learn a mix of original Broadway choreography (Bob Fosse, Michael Bennett’s A Chorus Line, and more) and fun new choreography based on Broadway shows and repertoire. This class is a great place to get a great workout while learning and growing, and developing self-confidence in musical theatre dance skills. We will explore Tap and Jazz, with a focus on theatrical dancing. Dancers and performers of any ability are welcome, as everyone will be challenged at their own level! This 8-week course will culminate in a showcase of the pieces we learned. NOTE: No class on May 10th.
About Your Instructor:
Molly began performing at a young age, inspired by the old movie musicals her parents loved. Starting dance classes at age 4, and singing and acting in shows in elementary school, her love of theatre grew into a passion to further her education and to eventually educate the next generation of art-makers. Molly brings with her a wide range of experiences, from performing professionally, to teaching in grades 8-12 as well as pre-school ages 3-5, to leading workshops for college age students, and directing, choreographing, stage managing, and house managing. She recently received her Master’s degree in Theatre Education from Emerson College, after having earned her Bachelor’s degree from Muhlenberg College in 2016. Her dual degrees in Theatre and Dance, with a concentration in Performance Studies, inform her teaching and art making. Molly specializes in drama through movement, in dance, ranging from concert to theatrical, and in musical theatre performance. Molly is an enthusiastic educator, collaborator, and artist and cannot wait to join the Firehouse Family and greater Newburyport theatre community!
