4:30 - 6:30 pm Rehearsal Hall

Viki Atkinson, choreographer for CHICAGOViki


October 16 - Acting with the Body – Learn how to create an authentic and fully developed character using gesture and movement.  Participants should dress comfortably.

October 30 – Tap Dance – Always wanted to try tap? This is your chance! Participants will be introduced to basic tap steps and learn a short combination. Tap shoes are not necessary, but participants should wear hard-soled shoes and comfortable clothing.

November 13 – All That Jazz - Take Two – Another chance to experience the jazz styles of CHICAGO!  The choreography for this workshop will not be the same as in the September workshop, so students should feel free to attend both workshops. Participants should come dressed to move (dance/yoga clothes, sweats). Jazz shoes preferred. Girls should also bring character shoes if they have them.


Come to one or two workshops, or all of them. Limited to 30 participants each.
