Summer Dance Classes

Learn Original Broadway Choreography!

 

New dancer? We’ve got the answer!

Summer 2022: New Student Intensive

What: Beginning Musical Theatre Dance & Tap
When: Sundays, 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. | June – August
Who: Theatre & musical theatre students, age 14 and up, who…
• Don’t yet have dance training outside of show rehearsals, or
• Have some prior dance training, but are relatively new to dance — typically with less than 2 years of continuous training.
Why: Summer is the best time of year to join BTI’s dance program. Beginning level classes for teens and adults are hard to find! And as adorable as 6 year olds dressed in pink from head to toe are, you probably don’t consider them ideal classmates.

Summer Tuition: $150 per month. ($25 discount if you pay in full for the season.)

It’s not too late to register! – 2 Spaces Remaining


There is a one-time $15 registration fee for new dance students.

 

Summer Dance Program 

Musical Theatre Dance

Structured just like musical theatre dance classes at NYC studios, students learn original Broadway choreography from all styles of musical theatre.  This class is designed for busy theatre students to learn a combination of musical theatre dance, ballet technique, jazz, and multiple Broadway styles.  In the performing business, auditions are your tests, and dance classes are where you study.  Whether you are preparing for professional auditions in New York, college auditions, or your next show audition, BTI’s musical theatre dance program will get you to where you want to be.

Musical Theatre Dance classes focus on…
• Establishing strong dance technique
• Increasing strength, flexibility, and endurance
• Learning the dance vocabulary used in musical theatre
• Building musical theatre dance repertoire of Broadway Choreography (a priceless preparation for professional auditions and your career in general)
• Learning both musical theatre and dance history which are incorporated right into the class

Tuition: 90 Minute Class – $20 per class.

Placement:

BTI’s intermediate/advanced Musical Theatre Dance classes move quickly and require a minimum of two years of ballet and jazz training within the last four years.  If you are competent with an intermediate/advanced level ballet barre, double jazz turns, split leaps, and are able to pick up choreography quickly, BTI’s intermediate/advanced level classes will be a good fit for you.

Private lessons are available for students who have not previously studied jazz or ballet in a formal class setting (outside of show rehearsals), would like a refresher before joining the class, or want to progress faster with one-on-one training. To schedule, email andrea@broadwaytrainingintensive.com.

 

Tap Class

Why: It’s simple.  The more training you have, the more employable you are.  In addition to being a form of dance, tap is also a form of music, and an integral part of a musical theatre performer’s training.  There are two major styles of tap: Broadway tap and rhythm tap.  Both styles are used in Broadway shows and therefore both are taught in BTI classes.  Students learn choreography by tap legends Gregory Hines, Savion Glover, Randy Skinner, and many more!

Most BTI students take both Tap and Musical Theatre Dance, and we highly recommend it as the classes complement each other well and help build solid dance technique, coordination, strength, and musicality.

Tap classes focus on…
• Establishing strong tap technique
• Increasing coordination, rhythm, strength and endurance
• Learning tap vocabulary
• Learning both rhythm and Broadway tap style combinations

Tuition60 Minute Class – $15 per class.

Placement:

BTI’s intermediate/advanced tap classes move quickly and require a minimum of two years of training within the past four years.  If you are competent with all of your time steps, crossing drawbacks, wings, syncopated tips and pullbacks, can shuffle off to buffalo while turning, and are familiar with tap terminology, BTI’s intermediate/advanced level tap classes will be a good fit for you.

Private lessons are available for students who have not previously studied tap in a formal class setting (outside of show rehearsals), would like a refresher before joining the class, or want to progress faster with one-on-one training. To schedule, email andrea@broadwaytrainingintensive.com.

 

Program Info

 

Age-Range: 14 and up. Students under the age of 14 are considered on a case-by-case basis.

BTI Dance Class Location: Metropolitan Academy of Dance (15095 E. Hinsdale Dr., Centennial, CO 80112)

Wear/Bring:

Musical theatre Dance: Athletic or dance clothing and jazz shoes.  Intermediate/Advanced level students are required to wear form-fitting dance clothing, and ballet and character shoes are also recommended for this level, but not required. (In order for character shoes to be safe for dance classes, they must be LaDucas or a professional shoe with a flexible sole.)

Tap: Athletic or dance clothing and tap shoes.  Tap shoes are a percussive instrument, and for this particular class we recommend hard soled tap shoes for “rhythm tap.”  (Shoes should have laces. Shoes with soft or flexible soles, high-heels, slip-on and single strap styles, are not recommended.)  If you have questions prior to purchasing, please email andrea@broadwaytrainingintensive.com and we’ll send recommendations.

Attendance & Tuition PolicyEnrollment is limited to ensure the best possible training for every student. Cancellations and refunds will not be possible. If a student is feeling unwell, quarantining, out of town, visiting or auditioning for colleges, or away for a theatre-related conflict, they are welcome to attend class virtually in real time, or they may take class later at their convenience via the online recording.

If a student is unable to attend a pre-paid dance class, 48 hours advance notice is requested.

 

Private Lessons: Students who have not previously studied dance in a formal class setting (outside of show rehearsals), would like a refresher before joining classes, or are interested in getting more training to progress faster, may email  andrea@broadwaytrainingintensive.com.
