Werkshop formats

Dancewerks Werkshops are designed to the needs of the host studio and are determined after a consultation with Ellen Werksman. The following are examples from previous workshops:

Technique Werkshop:

Ellen Werksman and a staff of 2-4 instructors conducts classes in Ballet, Ballet Body Workout, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, Tap, Musical Theater, Improvisation, Hip Hop, and more. The class structure is custom-designed to meet the needs of the studio. A breakdown of Junior and Senior level classes is recommended.

Choreography Werkshop:

This workshop can be used to develop dances for future performance or as a learning tool. Choreography is created and designed specifically for the students, including solos, duets, trios, or group pieces, and can be utilized for competitions or other performance opportunities.

Option: Dancers “audition” for a part in a piece and are taken through the ins and outs of the entire audition process until the end product is finished and ready for performance. With this option, dancers learn the facts of the audition process, including the art of personality, the realities of typecasting, and the importance of quick learning.  

Competition Edge Werkshop: 

Judges / instructors from the Dancewerks staff will adjudicate individual competition dances, and through hands-on correction, aid in choreography design, spacing suggestions, and technique adjustment. Students will receive advice on fixing common mistakes and gain insight on their performance by evaluation from our outstanding staff. 

Option: Studios can add a custom-designed Master Class to work on specific skills that enhance the performance/ competition experience during the Competition Edge Workshop. (Based on student evaluation.)

General Werkshop Format:

Friday: Master Class 5 – 7 pm  / placement evaluation, meet and greet staff
Saturday: Classes 10 am – 4 pm
Sunday: 10 am – 2 pm / parent presentation, scholarship presentation
