You Can Learn to Sing, Dance, and Act from Broadway Stars with These Virtual Classes
If there’s anything 2020 has taught us, it’s that some things in life are just better in person.—one of them being the performing arts. There’s nothing quite like anticipation of settling into your seat at the theater and watching the house lights dim. Unfortunately, Broadway has been dark since March due to COVID-19 and will remain closed until 2021, but Airbnb has come to the aid of theater lovers with the launch of its Broadway Online Experiences.
You can learn to sing, dance, act, or even go behind the scenes with Broadway stars in classes that are one to two hours long. If you’re tired of working out from home or going for another run, dance classes are a fun way to mix up your workout. Just grab your laptop and get ready to turn your living room into a dance floor when you learn the iconic dance moves from CHICAGO, or the can-can choreography from Moulin Rouge! The Musical.
Like all Online Experiences, you can read about your host before you sign up and find out exactly what materials are required for each class. For example, jazz or tennis shoes are recommended for the CHICAGO dance classes, while the Moulin Rouge host recommends stretchy pants, water, and a towel (kicking those legs means getting your heart rate up).
If just the thought of dancing is enough to make you break into a sweat, don’t worry. There are plenty of non-performing online experiences to choose from that’ll still give you the taste of Broadway that you’re missing. Everyone’s childhood dreams come true when you get to hangout with your favorite Disney Princesses in the hybrid workshop-performance Behind-the-Scenes with Broadway’s Princesses, featuring the actors who play Belle, Jasmine, and Cinderella.
As the Airbnb Broadway Online Experiences says, “the show must go online.” You can browse and book all classes on the Online Experiences official landing page. Classes fill up quickly, like the sold-out Storytelling Through Song with Tituss of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” so reserve your spot early.
