PT Barnum is one of the great American Legends of all times. This fall join Teacher Suz as she presents an exciting Musical Theater Class that will challenge and inspire students ages 10-18. "This is Me" from The Greatest Showman is a song about standing up for yourself, being proud of who you are and accepting yourself with all your flaws. Using many different forms of dance (modern, jazz, theatrical, and some hip hop) the students will bring this dramatic piece to life in a musical theater presentation that will captivate all.
Susan Ruddock began dancing at age 16, taking an Interpretive Dance class from Sr. Jeanine Therese. She found her passion & escalated her talent by taking thousands of diverse dance classes: modern, ballet, tap, jazz & musical theatre. Tap dancing so fascinated her that she dedicated 35 years to The Skylark Tappers dance company, retiring in Dec 2018. In 2010, Suz was chosen as a local Rockette to open the Radio City Rockettes’ show in Portland. Over the years, Suz honed her tap skills by interacting with taps masters Cholly Atkins, Brenda Buffalino, Honi Coles, Linda Sohl-Elison, Fred Strickler, Portland’s own Terry Brock & countless other tap masters. Suz enjoys engaging in theatre as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer or assistant director with over 40 shows to her credit. A recent venture was choreographing Disney’s The Lion King for Kids.
