If you have ever wanted to choreograph a dance, then this is the class for you! Join us as we learn how to map out a song, utilize tools and techniques that will give a dance visual interest and meaning, and methods for choreographing that will ensure you never get stuck coming up with ideas for your next dance creation. Join Lisa Allison in this dance exploration class where students will have the opportunity to help not only select their showcase song, but also come up with the creation and choreography for their own showcase dance.
Lisa has been dancing and preforming since she was very young. She received a BA in theatre performance and theatre administration from Whitworth University. She has studied numerous styles of dance including ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap, hip-hop, swing, ballroom, and latin. Since graduating, she has been active working with professional and community theaters in the Portland and Salem area stage managing and choreographing. She believes we were all made with the ability to dance, and with a little practice and instruction, we can create something very beautiful through movement. For Lisa, dance is a joyful expression of the soul, and she is excited to share that joy with others. When not working on a production, she enjoys going on adventures with her husband, Kyle, and their children Lexie, Marcus, Jinora, and Ezra.
