Summer Dance Workshop

Michael Mizerany

Class Description:
Michael’s Horton-based class is appropriate for intermediate dancers with some technical training who are looking for a challenging, fast-paced class. His style is athletic and aerobic with a focus on proper technique and alignment.
Michael Mizerany moved to San Diego to perform with Malashock Dance and served as its Associate Artistic Director until 2013.  Michael has choreographed extensively, including two critically acclaimed works for Diversionary Theater, Far From Eden and Let Me Into Your Skin, as well as for the musical theater productions of Altar Boyz, Divine Sister, Miss Kitty’s Wild West Revue and Scrooge In Rouge (Diversionary Theatre), Chicago: A Speakeasy Cabaret, Grey Gardens and Ass, or A Midsummer Night’s Fever (Ion Theatre) as well as Carnvial! and Suds (The Coronado Playhouse). Michael has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors including two Lester Horton Dance Awards for his solos Tin Soldier and Bump in the Road, the LA Stage Scene “Scenie” Award for Outstanding Choreography for Altar Boyz and the Bravo San Diego Award for Outstanding Choreographer of 2012. Last year, he was nominated for a Craig Noel Theater Award for Outstanding Choreography for Altar Boyz.  Most recently, Michael has been nominated again for a Bravo San Diego Award as Outstanding Choreographer of 2013 for his contemporary/ musical theatre work. Michael also conceived and directs Hot Guys Dancing, the popular dance series at Diversionary Theatre.  Upcoming projects include serving as choreographer for Spring Awakening at Cygnet Theatre and for Bare: The Musical at Diversionary Theater.
