Dancify That: The Workshop
Discover and sharpen your comedy-dance skills in a workshop inspired by the comedy-dance game show Dancify That! We’ll play improv and movement games, develop over-the-top dance personas, and use viral videos to inspire short dance pieces. Great for dancers looking to develop their comedy chops, improvisers and actors who’d like to turn up their level of fearless physical play, and anyone interested in a damn good time!

The Dancify workshop the most fun improv class I ever had and I’d take it again. The instructors create a stimulating, open environment and give participants insightful feedback regarding their character development and improv.Adrienne T.
Dancify was a fun and freeing way to get out of your head and into your body on stage. The workshop mixed aspects of improv, character work, and dance in a low pressure and super funny way!Mark S.
