Spring Into Summer Calendar

What these classes are all about:

We Devise ~ Theatre created from the inside out.

Devising theatre is all encompassing for a wide variety of skills and ability levels. Participants start with a topic or an idea instead of a script -- there is room for flexibility and imagination! Students who are strong in visual mediums can participate -- writers, dancers, actors, singers -- can all enjoy the process of discovery through devising theatre!
This is a performance-based project. Students may incorporate music and singing!

Tuition: $145

The Body Talks (Physical Theatre) ~ One of our most popular classes involves participants in movement, exercises and games, which help to gain skills in listening to the body's natural instincts. Participants will explore physical theatre and create new work from inspiration brought from physical exercises from movement theories: Growtoski, Laqoc, Butuh, Somatic Movement, Dance, View points and Laban. A fun, active and expressive class in physical theatre!

Tuition: $145

Stage Directing for Girls ~ A NEW class taught by Kytriena Payseno empowers girls to take the lead in storytelling on stage! Participants will gain skills in working with actors and a team as a director, staging, planning, and more. For all levels.

Tuition: $145

On-Camera Auditions ~ Students gain skills and knowledge in their mastery of on-camera performance. Students will delve into on-camera presence, relaxation techniques, with an opportunity to break habits that hinder an "authentic" audition. Students have will an opportunity to observe their work in REAL TIME working with a camera and monitor provided for the course. Mock audition created for class finale.
