Mr. CJ is no stranger to DLC! He contributed choreography to last June’s TYA production of Bring It On the Musical and taught the original “Hip Hop Hamilton” workshop class this past February. We’re thrilled that he’s able to take some time out of his busy choreography schedule to help our students hone their Musical Theatre Dance skills while learning combinations set to some of Broadway’s most popular music! Please join us in welcoming back CJ as a visiting DLC Teaching Artist. Musical Theatre Bootcamp: Hip Hop Hamilton camp runs July 5-8, and is open to students in grades 6-12. Registration is currently open until the session fills. We’ve expanded the Musical Theatre Bootcamp series by popular demand this year.
