If you ever wanted to learn the moves of a professional Broadway dancer, your chance has arrived.
Learn how to rock ‘n’ roll like a Broadway dancer.
Jody Reynard, who appears in the 2013 Broadway cast of “Memphis,” will conduct a workshop 9 a.m.-11 a.m. Saturday in Room 113 of Candler Physical Education Center, featuring choreography from the musical.
“He’ll start with a warm-up and then go straight into the choreography of the show,” said George Ann Simpson, kinesiology and dance professor.
Reynard’s other Broadway credits include “Legally Blonde,” “Saturday Night Fever,” and “My Fair Lady.”
The event is open to the public with $10 admission. Students with a college ID can attend for free.
“Memphis” won a 2010 Tony Award, saluting excellence in Broadway theatre, in the Best Musical category.
According to broadwaytour.net, “Memphis” takes audiences back in time more than 50 years to a tale of a white radio jockey and a black songstress.
“Memphis” opens at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St.
The show runs through Sunday.
