Our students were able to take class from the amazing Melanie Moore. Melanie is a star from So You Think You Can Dance, Finding Neverland, Hello Dolly and many more Broadway Shows. Her bright, energized spirit is infectious and it was the perfect way to start our year!
DESOD and theREP Theatre hosted a variety of Workshops for aspiring Musical Theater performers. Some of the highlights was having returning Guest Teacher, Melanie Moore , teach a series of Dance Workshops for our students. Melanie is a star from So You Think You Can Dance, Finding Neverland, Hello Dolly and many more Broadway Shows. It was such an inspiring week of dance, and our students learned so much for Melanie, we love having her be a part of our program!
We then participated in a Theatre Workshop in New York City! 13 triple threats and their chaperones attended private workshops with Broadway/Vocal Directors as well as Agents, including classes taught by two fellow Kentuckians, Colton Ryan and Ashley Kate Adams. They were also able to learn choreography from Frozen the Musical from cast member, Austin Lesch.
Our students were also privileged to attend three Broadway Musicals: Prom, King Kong and Kiss me Kate! DESOD Alum Haley Fish is a featured dancer in Kiss Me Kate, and it was absolutely amazing to watch her perform and such an inspiration for our students! It was a wonderful weekend and DESOD is so proud to provide these opportunities for our students!
