I absolutely love teaching dance topics, sharing what I know, and learning in the process.
All are welcome to my workshops and no registration is required – just come! Workshops are in voice, so you do need to make sure you can hear voice. If you prefer not to participate – feel free to come listen! Comfy chairs and class notes provided.
Please arrive early to prepare and slap on your workshop HUD! So that we can focus, I do close the sim when the workshop starts and usually can’t respond to IMs.

NEW 2018: Choreography Designer – Introduction & the Basics
The Spot On Choreography Designer system is a tool to move, rotate, lift, or lower avatars or objects from one point to the next – referred to as waypoints. Use your stage more effectively by moving your dancers, change the appearance of animations by turning your dancers in a different direction, use this system to move props or even an entire stage during your performance.

NEW 2018: Spot On Smooth Dancer – Introduction and Putting Your HUD to Work
Geared for anyone new to the Smooth Dancer Animation HUD or still familiarizing themselves. We will be focused on loading the HUD, playing animations, inviting others to dance and how to remove dancers (including yourself). We will also cover what to do when your dancers aren’t dancing.

5 PM SLT – Creating Small Stage Performances
Small stage performances are not just for the small stage! By using panels to reduce the size of your dance area, you can create smaller, more intimate, and even creative performances where you become the central focus – and still perform anywhere! Without the need to create a large set and with just a minimal use of movers, you can focus your effort and creativity, showcasing your choreography and style. Creating a small stage performance is also idea for the new choreographer and we’ll explore why.
During this workshop we will be reviewing the benefits and considerations in creating a small stage performance, the difference in choosing props, costumes, and effects, and how creating for the small stage can provide additional creative opportunities for dance either as a solo or for a small number of dancers. We will also review how to adapt your small stage set to fit in a standard sized venue. Workshop Details
