With Neil Dolan
Sept. 18, 2018
6:45 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.
25x weekly on Tuesday
Each week, the class will start with a traditional set warm up of around 35 mins which is choreographed so that the students can learn it over a few weeks, but is also easy to follow. The warm up includes the basic technical steps, alongside exercises to help improve strength, stamina and flexibility. The warm up is followed by movement sequences across the room to work on technical steps and presentation of work. This if followed by a set routine being taught, that may be repertoire from existing musicals, but usually choreographed by myself. Each class ends with a deep stretch to cool down and avoid injuries. The style of my class is influenced by the work of Fosse, Robbins, Balanchine and Bennett, and many other renowned musical choreographers. I often teach repertoire from existing shows, and also create my own work for my classes. I am extremely excited to be starting my own course in Rotterdam and look forward to seeing who is going to join for a bit of hard work and a lot of fun.
With any questions about the course, or if you'd like to pay the course in instalments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set that up for you.
