Broadway and Hip Hop Intensive for Intermediate and Advanced Dancers

with Cheryl Cutlip & Brielle Rathbun

July 22 – 26  Broadway and Hip Hop Intensive (with Cheryl Cutlip and Hip Hop Artists Brielle Rathbun) $225. 
This intensive will incorporate Cheryl Cutlip’s Broadway styles and Brielle Rathbun’s hip hop technique to create a dynamic and energetic week.  Ms. Cutlip will nurture each student’s “triple threat” in order to sing, act and dance their way into our hearts and hold to WCFA’s high standards.  Brielle Rathbun will be presenting multiple styles of hip hop and will provide a broad overview of this modern art form.

Brielle Rathbun

Brielle Rathbun was born into a family of performers.  Her formal dance training began with classical ballet at schools such as:  Boston Ballet, Kansas City Ballet and Atlanta Ballet.  As a summer alumnus of Walnut Hill School of the Arts, Big Muddy Dance Company, The Culture House, BuildaBeast and Word in Motion, she incorporates a unique versatility to her view point as a choreographer and dancer. 

During her early education, her choreography repertoire became noticed by local artists and schools. This created opportunities for nationwide travel, setting solos for dancers competing in the CCA – Florence, Italy finals and eventually touring with Project Dance in Paris, France.

Most recently, she had the opportunity to dance with Alonzo King Lines Dance Company in San Francisco, California and aired on the 2018 season of American Idol as a musician.  Her knowledge, love of musicality and rhythm has enabled her to set choreography for over a dozen musicals.  In 2018 alone, Brielle choreographed and directed two full-length contemporary dance productions with casts of nearly 200 dancers.

Currently residing in Atlanta, GA, Brielle is passionate about bringing inspiration to dancers in a way that truly lasts.

Cheryl Cutlip

Cheryl Cutlip is the founding director of THE PROJECT DANCE FOUNDATION, an arts and education organization dedicated to performing with integrity to inspire.  Project Dance was formed as an outcry following the events of 911 and today Cheryl, along with more than 500 volunteers produce events across the globe in cities like London, Penang, Sydney, Hong Kong, Washington DC, Atlanta and New York City.

A native of North Carolina, Cheryl’s dance career began in Nashville, TN at OPRYLAND USA. After working on a cruise ship, living in Japan while dancing at TOKYO’S DISNEYLAND, and performing in the European tour of 42nd STREET, Cheryl moved to New York where she became a RADIO CITY ROCKETTE.Cheryl enjoyed performing with the ROCKETTES for 15 years where her duties included dance captain; assistant choreographer and spokesperson for nationally televised appearances including one-on-one interviews with Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, and Larry King. She was the co-choreographer for KICK INTO FITNESS; and choreographer for CHRISTMAS ACROSS AMERICA promotional tours, THE YANKEE PENANT PARADE and NBC’s ROCKEFELLER CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING special.

Other career credits include the Broadway National Tour of CRAZY FOR YOU and the Broadway benefit to the stars version of MACK AND MABLE starring Jerry Herman and Donna McKechnie. Cheryl also danced with the jazz company, WALKERDANCE under the direction of Chet Walker where she performed in a benefit concert for lyricist and composer, Stephen Schwartz. Cheryl currently directs a precision dance company called The Carolina Snowbelles (www.thecarolinasnowbelles.com)

While Cheryl is very busy with Project Dance and other related projects, her top priority is family.  She is celebrating her 22nd year of marriage and has two young children ages 12 and 9.

Music Together®
with Sarah Mason

Our music classes for kids provide a fun, comfortable environment for children around the world to make music with their families.

At Music Together, we understand the importance of music in early childhood—from birth, in fact. Because the truth is, most people are born with enough music aptitude to play in a symphony orchestra when they are adults, if they choose. But first we must learn how to “speak music”—to take the musical instrument we all have, ourselves, developing that musical capacity from a very young age. The sounds we make, our movements, our rhythms—these are the building blocks of music and of early childhood learning. And that’s what Music Together is all about.
