Dancify That: The Workshop!
Discover and sharpen your comedy-dance skills in a workshop inspired by dance game show Dancify That. With playful exercises and improv games, this workshop will get you out of your head and into your fearless and impulsive dancing body. We’ll play group movement games, develop over-the-top dance personas, and use bizarre internet videos to inspire short dance pieces. Great for dancers looking to develop comedy chops, actors/improvisers looking to turn up their level of confident and fearless physical play or anyone looking to have a good time and exercise making bold and creative choices.
