Participants in the Rockette Style Dance Master Class will begin with a warm-up that incorporates stretching and strengthening as well as cardio training. They will then learn two dance combos that reflect the style of the Rockettes and focus on precision dance technique.

The class will end with participants learning a kick line that will prove to be fun while also focusing on coordination and team work. The final 30 minutes of the class will be a cool down with a Question and Answer session about life as a professional dancer.
