INSIDE HAMILTON is way more than just learning songs and routines and from the show – this workshop introduces participants to the finer details of choreographic styles that influenced the show's choreographer, Andy Blankenbuler, and focuses on the specific requirements that all performers need in order to be cast in the show. Musically, performers are introduced to the many vocal demands of Hamilton, including the detailed process of how swings operate musically within the show.
