You do not need to know the choreography perfectly but be familiar with it because then we can work on performance technique and characterization.

WARM UPS

Before dancing it’s important to warm up your body. Way too many people end up hurting themselves or getting out of alignment and sometimes it’s caused just by not warming up your body. Don’t let that be you!

To warm up your body you need to increase your heart rate and do some sort of stretching. If you need some ideas check out my DANCE VIDEO LIBRARY

MUSICAL NUMBERS

You will be found -Dear Evan Hansen

YOU WILL BE FOUND lyrics

Even when the dark comes crashing through
When you need a friend to carry you
When you’re broken on the ground
You will be foundSo let the sun come streaming in
‘Cause you’ll reach up and you’ll rise again
If you only look around
You will be found (You will be found)
You will be found (You will be found)
You will be foundOut of the shadows
The morning is breaking
And all is new, all is new
It’s filling up the empty
And suddenly I see that
All is new, all is new
You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone (You are not alone)
You are not alone (You are not alone)
You are not
You are not alone (You are not alone)Even when the dark comes crashin’ through
When you need someone to carry you
When you’re broken on the groundYou will be found!So when the sun comes streaming in
‘Cause you’ll reach up and you’ll rise again
If you only look around
You will be foundEven when the dark comes crashin’ through
You will be found
When you need someone to carry you
You will be found
You will be found
You will be found

Nowhere to go but up – Mary Poppins Returns

DANCE THE DANCE

NOWHERE TO GO BUT UP lyrics –

If your day’s up the spout
Well there isn’t a doubt
There’s nowhere to go but up
And if you don’t believe
Just hang on to my sleeve
For there’s nowhere to go but upAs you fly over town
It gets harder to frown
And we’ll all hit the heights
If we never look down
Let the past take a bow
The forever is now
And there’s nowhere to go but up, up!
There’s nowhere to go but up!”Of course the grownups will all forget by tomorrow”
“They always do”
“Only one balloon left Mary Poppins
I think it must be yours”
“Yes, I suppose it must
Practically perfect in every way”

Hand Jive – Grease

No lyrics as we are doing the last part of the song that is instrumental!

ONE SHORT DAY lyrics

Who’s the mage
Whose major itinerary
Is making all Oz merrier?
Who’s the sage
Who sagely sailed in to save
Our posteriors?
Whose enthuse for hot air ballooning
Has all of oz honeymooning?
Woo
Wiz-n’t he wonderful?
(Our wonderful wizard!)One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
To have a lifetime of fun
One short dayWhat a way
To be seeing the city
Where so many roam to
We’ll call it home too
And then, just like now
We can say
We’re just two friends
Two good friends
Two best friendsSharing one wonderful
One shortThe wizard will see you now!Day!
