Co-curricular classes for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester have moved online and are still free and open to all University students, faculty, and staff.

As part of the Program in Dance’s spring 2020 co-curricular dance offerings, Shonica Gooden leads a workshop inspired by Andy Blankenbuehler’s choreography from Hamilton.

Curated by Adam Hyndman and taught by Hyndman and guests, this series of workshops will provide the opportunity to learn from some of Broadway’s top performers. Over the course of the semester, the class will survey a wide range of genres and feature the most contemporary dance styles currently being utilized on Broadway. No experience required.

To take advantage of our unique course offerings and virtually train with professionals outside of course work, visit the Co-Curricular Offerings page for the Zoom ID for this class. Participants will need to log in to this page with Princeton University ID to gain access.
