Musical Theater Dance Workshop – Hairspray Themed!

Taught by Courtney Liu

About the Workshop

In this DukeCreate workshop we will prepare our mind, body, and spirit with a heart-pumping, smile-inducing cardio dance warm-up before learning original choreography from the Hairspray movie. This class is a sweaty and totally judgment-free zone for ALL levels of dancers. Calling all lovers of musicals and movies and Hairspray! Let’s dance!
