Join us as we dive into musical theater past and present, paying tribute to the legendary Fanny Brice. Just like the current revival heating up Broadway, we’ll sizzle, spin and kick our heels to this powerful anthem from the celebrated musical “Funny Girl”. This class will focus on musicality, presentation, and use of movement patterns while always continuing to support each dancer’s journey toward technical excellence. Instruction will be differentiated to meet both novice and experienced dancers alike and taught by our very experienced and seasoned dance instructor, Michelle Bjorkman!
Michelle is excited to be joining the CYT family as an instructor, having graduated with honors from SJSU with a B.A. in Child Development, and a concentration in theater and dance. During her 30+ years in the arts, she has worked with performers of all ages, directing and choreographing dozens of productions in professional, children's, community, and educational theater environments. She has served the Christian community as an elementary school teacher and is now currently homeschooling her own four children. Michelle has also worked locally as a dance company manager and class instructor, specializing in Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Modern, and Zumba dance fitness. Each summer, she looks forward to the highlight of leading weekly dance parties for the Mount Hermon Family Camps.
