DEAR EVAN HANSEN Workshop with Jonathan Warren
We are so excited to bring this year's biggest hit show to BKA!
Jonathan Warren, who is the resident choreographer for the smash hit DEAR EVAN HANSEN, will be teaching a movement, song and sides workshop for kids! Jonathan will start with movement from DEAR EVAN HANSEN and will discuss the process of developing this show. He will also coach a song cut of the students choice and scenes from the show with each student. The goal of this workshop is to provide a unique perspective on how this musical was created, how to perform a "cold reading" and perform contemporary song in an audition format.
Jonathan Warren is also the Associate Resident Director / Choreographer of the current National Tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC and was the Dance Captain of the Broadway production of WICKED for many years. Jonathan has an interesting and unique perspective on being cast in and performing in Broadway shows that will be invaluable to our students.
