Your Answer?...CLICK HERE
- Mariah L. - Yes. Mentorship is important to expand the knowledge of those who seek to increase their education and grow in any field. Choreographers need to have their own expression however, the knowledge of older generations is useful.
- Rachael A. - I do believe that mentorship is needed. Having input from someone other than yourself is vital for self-improvement.
- Lauran S. - YES! Currently there is only one program designed for Choreography in Musical Theatre. In reading books and testimonials from working professionals, they credit their professional experiences that led to their success. We can provide more!
