Dance workshop set for April 28

Monday, April 2, 2012

On Saturday, April 28, Dance Coalition, a northwest Arkansas nonprofit group of choreographers and dancers, will host an all-day dance workshop with Master Teacher Desiree Robbins at the University of Arkansas HPER Building, 155 Stadium Drive, Fayetteville.

The day will also include Hip Hop, Contemporary, Ballet Variations and Yoga Warm-Up classes taught by teachers from Essence of Art Studios, Western Arkansas Ballet, Infiniti Performing Arts & Arkansas Yoga Center.

Dance classes will be $15-$25 each and dancers are encouraged to register in advance by visiting and completing a registration form. All dancers age seven and older are invited to attend.

Master Teacher Robbins, who travels internationally to more than 40 cities each year for dance, has a passion for teaching and devotes most of her time to training the professional dancers that are seen on camera. Her expertise is in fine tuning dancers' technique, style, and movement to create a refined, professional product. She is well known in professional dance for analyzing form and operative skills, and producing efficiency in movement. Her choreography has been seen on the silver screen, in HBO mini-series, Saturday Night Live, ESPN2, and also includes coaching and choreography for professional teams like the Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleaders (NFL) and the King's Royal Court Dancers (NBA).
