$45 for the 4 class workshop
With an emphasis on technical clarity, coordination, rhythm, musicality, and a sheer joy of dance, this workshop will offer a solid foundation in theatrical jazz.
Classes will begin with warm-up exercises formulated by the American dancer, teacher, and choreographer Matt Mattox (Caleb in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers) and influenced by the technique and style of, “the Father of Jazz Dance” Jack Cole. A combination, using a variety of jazz music, will follow.
Thorey’s choreography has been inspired by the jazz dance greats she had the good fortune to work with during her many years as a professional dancer, including Mattox himself, Bob Fosse, Michael Bennett and Ron Field.
