Class Description

We will combine the skills of jazz, soft-shoe (tap) & physical comedy in this high energy class, focused on the choreography of the great character actor, Dick Van Dyke!  Through “Step in Time”, “Me Ol’ Bamboo” & “Trip a Little Light Fantastic”, we will develop the charisma and character necessary to be successful in musical theatre, as well as the use of props in dance.  

This is a class for all dance levels, ages 8-18, and can be performed in a comfortable, casual shoe, like converse. We will have a variety of choreography, ranging from beginner to advanced, leaving room for each child to feel both successful and challenged. The only requirement is that your child brings a good attitude & is excited, ready to be fully engaged in each fast-paced class! 

Get ready to work hard/play harder!


Jennie Smith

Jennie is so excited to be teaching again this session! She moved to Waco from College Station in June of 2016, and is a homeschooling mother of 4. She has been performing since she was 3, all the way through college, where she studied Vocal Performance at Oral Roberts University. As an adult, she sang with the Brazos Valley Chorale, taught music at a private school, along with teaching private vocal lessons. Her passion for finding and teaching harmonies comes from her many years of leading worship in church, in addition to her performing experience. Jennie has directed and choreographed various productions at church, and brought those talents to us at CYT Waco in the Spring of 2017, when she was the Vocal Director for Seussical Jr. Last season her Artistic Team contributions were as Vocal Director and Co-Choreographer for School House Rock Live, Choreographer for Into The Woods Jr., as well as Vocal Directing our Spring show, James and the Giant Peach. She substituted & assisted in the Fall & Winter sessions, & taught our musical theatre class, Tarzan, in the Spring. This past summer she served as a counselor during Trolls Camp and Vocal Directed our Greatest Show Camp, and went on a "High Adventure" teaching the Aladdin Musical Theatre class for this fall session. She is driven by her passion to for the kids to find their character & their voice.
