Dance Society: Beginners/Intermediate Jazz class
Monday 26 October 2020
6pm - 7:30pm
If you fancy learning how to dance, come to our brand-new Beginners/Intermediate Jazz class, on Monday we have LUKAS POISCHBEG teaching JAZZ, between 18:00-19:30 in Davies 1!
LUKAS POISCHBEG (he/him) is German/American performer, teaching artist, and educator born and raised in Seattle, USA. Lukas has trained in musical theatre and dance for the past ten years with an array of accredited organisations, including 6 years of intensive MT training. He received an Associate‘s Degree in Arts & Sciences before studying at the University of Washington, where he received a Bachelor‘s Degree in Dance & Education, Communities, and Organizations. Professional performance credits include Disney‘s Newsies (Village Theatre), Legally Blonde in Concert (Showtunes Theatre Company), and EQUALUX (A Sensible Theatre Co.), among others. Most recently, Lukas has performed as a Dancer and Dancer/Singer for Phoenix Reisen and CMV Cruise Lines.
As an educator, Lukas has taught students from all ages in all disciplines of dance and theatre. He has worked with companies such as Backstage Dance Studio, The Dance School, Village Theatre KIDSTAGE, Everett High School & Seattle‘s Performers, of which his co-direction won an award at the 2019 Junior Theatre Festival in Sacramento, CA.
He believes every student deserves the opportunity to learn in a safe and supportive environment. When we learn to take risks and express ourselves in front of others we develop valuable life skills beyond theatre or dance. ”I view my role as a mentor and instructor as one of uncovering, activating, and nurturing my students’ own mental elaborations of knowledge. I monitor and guide their own thinking and learning to help them grow in their capacity.“
