BDC Series: Jazz with Shelia Barker

Sheila Barker has been an educator, choreographer and performer for the past 12 years in such places as Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Europe and across the USA. She received a BFA in dance and has extensive training in Jazz, Ballet, Modern, Tap, African/Dunham and Musical Theatre. Her performance background ranges from Broadway and Off-Broadway to industrials, music videos and soap operas. Sheila has choreographed many industrials, music videos and stage shows for recording artists.

Advanced Beginner Jazz: Focus is on breaking down turns, leaps, placement, connecting movement so it flows, and building a dance vocabulary which will bring the dance student to the next level. The class is welcoming to newcomers and Ms. Barker gives individual attention. Her style uses her wide range of influences to create an exciting innovative fusion.

Intermediate Jazz: Works on technique, building more dance vocabulary and fostering individual style by encouraging dancers to create from their own centers. Ms Barker's aim is to develop dancers with the freedom of movement that comes from a firm technical foundation, grace, style and attitude!
