Class Description

This is a great class for anyone starting out with their musical theater experience or even wanting to better their technique. Our class will cover Broadway-Style choreography while learning fundamental dance elements. We will cover the basics of ballet, tap, and jazz as these are foundational of the high energy, exaggerated movements we see on Broadway today. Our class combinations will involve select styles (ranging from African to jazz) that will have students feeling comfortable with learning choreography quickly and efficiently while challenging their mind, body, and stamina. Note: Tap shoes are not required.


Kristen Downing

Kristen originates from the Chicagoland area and grew up in CYT Chicago. Soon after graduating, she worked at Disney World as a character performer. After the magical adventures in Florida, she went back to Chicago to train in improv at the world-renowned Second City. Kristen took her training to Biola University and began a comedy group on campus that still runs to this day. She earned her B.A. in Communication with an emphasis in Speech/Drama and minor in Biblical & Theological Studies from Biola University in 2013. After graduating, Kristen went back to the Chicagoland area and had the wonderful opportunity to choreograph musicals for a couple high schools. Some of which include the following: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Xanadu, Mary Poppins, and The Addams Family. Now Kristen is married (to a CYTKC alumnus), and can't wait to meet new students with big dreams!
