Summer Jazz Class with Raphe

Amherst Ballet welcomes Raphe Gilliam who will teach Theatre Jazz Dance this summer.

Raphe Gilliam

 Raphe Gilliam is an actor, dancer, and singer based in NYC and Amherst MA. He was most recently cast in Royal Caribbean’s production of Cats. Raphe attended Vassar College, where he had the opportunity to dance with and choreograph for the Vassar Repertory Dance Theatre. He has also studied dance at Steps on Broadway in NYC.  

Raphe’s class will begin with a jazz warm up followed by some across-the-floor combinations intended to introduce dancers to the movement style. Most of the class will be taken up with learning choreography which will change weekly. This class is open to dancers of all experience levels and the choreography will be accommodating to that.
