These tremendous artists have a lot to offer from their wealth of experi- ences. They have worked with many famous actors, choreographers, and dancers. Teresa teaches Mastering the Art of Dance every Monday night at the renowned Debbie Reynolds Studio in North Hollywood. Teresa asserts, “My main goal is to make people feel something. The point of class is not to come in and kill it, but to feel something. Make dance feel like dance instead of showing off in dance. What I do differ- ently as a teacher, is to practice emotion, to practice performing, to go beyond the surface, Think about what’s happened in your life and use it.”

As an Assistant Dance Captain for The King and I, Chris articulates, “I am in charge of helping our Dance Captain maintain the integrity of our show as we created it back in February 2015. We field all questions and concerns regarding choreography in the show and we are in charge of teaching the show to future replacements. As a Swing, I am in charge of helping the show move forward in the absence of other cast members. For example, if anyone is out sick, on vacation, or out for any other reason, I need to be prepared to go on in their stead at a moment’s notice. That requires me to know the show like the back of my hand.
