Open rehearsal is an opportunity to learn new dance skills and explore new dance styles in a fat-positive, beginner-focused, class-like format alongside the emFATs you know and love. The dance style will vary but will typically be focused on jazz, lyrical, contemporary. and/or musical theater. All open rehearsals will begin with a jazz/ballet warm-up including some center work and stretching. Open rehearsal is a great place to start if you are interested in performing with Big Moves and/or the place to be if you are just interested in working on some dance fundamentals. Open rehearsals are open to people of all sizes, genders, and skill levels (including beginners). Please wear clothing you are comfortable moving and sweating in, bring dance shoes (jazz, ballet or dance sneakers) if you’ve got them and be ready to MOVE!
