Class Description

Since the earliest days of theater as an art form, ensemble members have helped to immerse the audience in the world of the show. They’re described as "triple threats" for their impressive singing, acting, and dancing abilities, but they're often under-appreciated when compared to the leads in a show. In this class, we will learn about this challenging job and how to truly appreciate these versatile performers. We’ll learn to perform like the many different types of ensembles in history, from the Greek chorus to the professional dancers of early Broadway, all the way to today's ensemble members. We’ll also discuss the special positions within modern-day theatrical ensembles, including dance captains, understudies, and swings.
