MUSICAL THEATRE WORKSHOP:

NIGHTCLUBS THROUGH THE DECADES

Sunday Mornings at 10am in April with Nick

In this 4 week intensive, you will travel through the second half of the 20th Century exploring a different decade each week and some of the most popular musical numbers within them. Dancers will start in the groovy and stylistic 60’s and end in the angsty and powerful 90’s. We will discuss the historical influences of the time and their effect on mainstream culture and movement. Each decade was so incredibly different, but with a consistent trend linking them all…a place where society could break free and express their artistry, frustration, joy, and individual stories…the nightclub.
