Every Friday, students will be sent a video lesson from Austin, focusing on a different musical theatre dance genre. Austin will present a new combination for each of the six sessions. The class will not only cover choreography, but students will learn terminology and technique specific to each style.

Then we’ll schedule a roughly 15 min ZOOM meeting between Austin & you based on your schedules where he will provide individual feedback on your performance. He’ll also be able to break down difficult steps with you via video and watch you perform and offer guidance and feedback.
