free Thriller workshop (part 2), Radio Tap 2.0 photos

We are completing our fourth week of the fall session and it really is beginning to look like fall out there.  The leaves are turning all sorts of beautiful shades of yellows, oranges, and reds and people are going out apple picking on the weekends.  But if you’ve missed out on the session thus far (which runs until December 18), worry not, as you can still attend as a drop-in or conveniently use an a la carte package.

There have been some Cadancers expressing interest in adding a Cadance t-shirt, tank, hoody, or pair of pants to their wardrobe.  I need a minimum of 10 orders to proceed, so check out the items on the website here.  Remember that colors are always subject to availability through American Apparel’s wholesale warehouse.  Submit your orders (with a 2nd and possibly 3rd choice of colors) with payment by Sunday, October 26.  Which conveniently leads me to…..

Mark your calendars for SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26 10:00-12:00. Part 2 – the chorus! We’ll continue what we started on August 24. If you didn’t have a chance to learn part 1, don’t worry! Everyone will learn the chorus from scratch, then we’ll review part 1. Just in time for Halloween!

Have you always danced along with MTV’s first world premiere video, Thriller? Or have you always wanted to learn the moves from the video that was voted as the most influential pop music video of all time? Now is your chance!!!

With Cadance Jazz, you will get to learn the choreography from Thriller and have the opportunity to perform it on stage in 2016. Whether you are already a part of Cadance or Klaxson, or if you’re just curious to see what Cadance is like, YOU are invited! Bring a friend or two…..

There will be opportunities down the road (TBA) to rehearse/refresh the choreography. Please RSVP to this event and share (this flyer ThrillerWorkshopPart2, if you wish) with your friends so you can be part of the Jackson magic!

Please note that this special FREE workshop will take place at the Klaxson tap studio.
