3rd – 8th Grade
at Cobble Hill Ballet
232 Carroll Street (Court & Carroll)
This dance workshop will teach students the original showstopping Broadway choreography of SUPERCAL from Disney’s hit Broadway Musical, MARY POPPINS. Students will learn all the choreography that corresponds to each letter of this long and expressive word (all 34 letters…18 consonants, 16 vowels) as well as other phrases of choreography from the number. This choreography is infused with character and individuality so students of all ages and skill sets are encouraged to attend this workshop. This workshop will not only teach students what is now considered legendary Broadway choreography, but it will also help them figure out how to pick up on choreography quickly (whether or not they consider themselves a dancer) and how to bring their individuality to the choreography. It is advised to come to class having listened to some version of the song SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS as we will be spelling the word through choreography. No specific footwear is required. Students should be in clothes they can move in comfortably. Students will be taken through a brief warm up. Thanks in advance and I look forward to seeing you in class… it’s sure to be Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
