Part of Dance Dynamics' mission is to enhance confidence of all students and people attending our courses. Our performance workshops have shown to dramatically improve the confidence of participants, not only on a stage, but also in their 'real lives'. We have decided to combine all of our teacher's knowledge, training and skills to offer you some fabulous performance courses. The workshops normally last for 2 hours.
Confidence building through the use of acting is central to this workshop in which we use drama based exercises to merge with dance styles techniques. Pupils will engage with various characters and are encouraged to explore facets of their own personalities through this course to develop their own individual stage persona. Great for anybody wanting to perform on stage and in any style of dance from burlesque, belly dance, musical theatre to pop performances.
Lights! Camera! Glamour!
