Musical Theater Dance Workshops - July 17 and 24
Fall musical theater auditions will be here before you know it! Join Kim Porio for one or both of her July dance workshops and brush up on your skills, especially some that you'll see in Guys and Dolls. Class will focus on proper technique, core strength, turns and spotting, balance, following choreography, and tips for nailing auditions. Acquire a competitive edge in a non-competitive and supportive environment. These workshops will take place in the beautiful, bright upstairs studio at Westport Academy of Dance—the perfect way to kick start the day! Stay tuned for details about her August intensive as well (likely the week of Aug 22).

With: Kim Porio
When: Sunday, July 17, and/or Sunday, July 24, from 10:30 to 12
