As part of Playhouse on Parks Professional Guest Artist Master Class Series 2019, join Ivory McKay, playing Mr. Bones in The Scottsboro Boys for a Master Class in performing choreography from “Underground” from Memphis and “Spread Love” from Sister Act. Ivory will focus on performance, musicality and bringing versatility to students’ work. The importance of diverse styles and time periods promote confidence, spontaneity and critical thinking, and allows students to develop their own expression and identity! Good for all levels, we will create a positive, joyful, hardworking and sweat full dance space!
