Join us in the Waukee High School choir room on Saturday, December 15th from 9:00-11:00am for a FREE musical theatre dance clinic! Local performer and choreographer Taylor Millar will join us to teach a section of a dance, including partnering. Please arrive by 8:45am dressed in comfortable clothing and footwear.

Register HERE. 

This clinic is open to all 9th-12th grade students with pre-registration, regardless of previous dance or theatre experience. This is an opportunity to explore a new skill area, and we encourage non-dancers and non-musical theatre fans to attend!

NOTE: 10th-12th grade students interested in joining the spring musical as a Dance Captain or Assistant Choreographer must attend this clinic as part of their application.
