This in-person workshop will explore how musical theater, through the lens of dance, can effectively become contemporized and relatable for audiences of today. We’ll learn a piece of rep from Danielle Diniz’s March 24th performance at Tribeca PAC and parse through why certain steps were choreographed to further the storytelling and evoke emotions and a visceral response from performers and viewers alike. Any level of experience is welcome although some knowledge of dance/movement is preferred.
