Hadestown Choreo and Dance Masterclass online on March 16, 2022.

All aboard! We’re going way down to Hadestown for our choreo & dance masterclass with Hadestown Associate Choreographer Katie Rose McLaughlin! This session will focus on performing and discovering personal freedom and self-expression through movement. We’ll learn a selection of choreo from the show, and make sure to bring your questions for a Q&A.
