Dancer Brain Bootcamp: How to Learn, Rehearse and Memorize Choreography

Instructor: Cleo Victory
Location: 1000 Rivers, 54 East 4th
Date: Saturday, September 14
Time: 1pm - 2:30pm
Cost: $25

Description :
Do your dance classes feel like a blur? Do you find that choreography seems to flow in one ear and out the other, without ever making it to your body? Do you ever get home after rehearsal, excited to practice everything that you’ve learned, only to find that you can’t remember a single step? Then this is the workshop for you! 

Join Cleo Victory as she challenges the common misconception that retaining choreography is an innate talent, and discover that memorizing choreography is a SKILL that you too can master. Cleo will be sharing tips and tricks that she’s picked up over twenty years of dance training, and providing you with the tools that you need to wake up your dancer brain and become a choreo queen!

This workshop is appropriate for beginner through intermediate level students. Please bring water, comfortable clothing, a notebook and pen, and ballroom/character heels (optional). Contact Cleo at cleo.halls@gmail.com with any questions.
