Focus on the Fundamentals
BEGINNER THEATRE DANCE
Ongoing Weekly Classes in partnership with The Actors Club Chicago
Tuesdays, 7-8:30pm @ Performing Arts Studio
An introduction to theatre jazz for beginner adult dancers. With a focus on storytelling through movement, every class builds upon fundamental jazz technique and explores stylistic choreography from classic to contemporary musical theatre. Regardless of your technique level, this is the place to find joy on the dance floor.
(Always check class schedule for cancellations.)
Not Your Average Dance Class:
Workshop sizes are small and tailored to the needs of the specific artists present.
Each class is always 1.5 hours (never an hour) so you can guarantee enough time for a full warm-up, technique development, and choreography assimilation.
We will never film and post your journey to market our programs without your explicit permission.
The learning happens both on and off the dance floor all week long.
Our company exists solely for YOU, a "mover" in the musical theatre industry seeking guidance and training to improve your dance technique and confidence for the stage.

"What if I am an absolute beginner?"
Good news! You are why Motivated Movers was created in the first place. Our classes are open to all varying basic, beginner, and advanced beginner levels. We keep class sizes small so there is plenty of room for one-on-one attention. We also adapt the classes to fit each individual artist in the room. Our classes will always be about YOU and your unique journey.
"What if I am not a professional actor?"
Our mission is to help everyone embrace movement, including you. While our company was founded to serve professional artists, this weekly class is both incredibly beneficial and joyful for adults with all backgrounds. If you are interested in stepping onto the dance floor to learn, we welcome you with arms wide open.
"What if I'm not 25 anymore?"
Everyone in musical theatre will encounter the need to dance, learn choreography, and/or be comfortable with movement regardless of their age. We focus on your body and what it needs at your beautiful stage of life. We also tailor the class to fit all artists present in the room.
