Taking the Stage
ages 8 - 11
In this class we will work on building the foundation of your actor’s tool set. Students will take part in acting and improvising games that help develop imagination, creativity, and articulation. We will explore how to use our voices and bodies to transform into different characters and then dive into some scene work. At the end of the course, we will give an in-class performance to show off our work! Offered in collaboration with the Hangar Theatre.

Essence of Character
16 - adult
How can an actor embody and portray a character
– even one they can’t relate to? Explore how movement can influence your
embodiment of a character in a psychologically and emotionally sustainable way.
Focusing on the movement-based exercises developed by acting instructors Anne
Bogart, Jean Sabatine, and Tadashi Suzuki, this class will help you to discover
an internal to external flow of energy. These exercises use the essence of
energy, rhythm, and even animals to generate a physical power, strong body, and
active imagination. Leap over psychological hang-ups and create an organic,
original character using motion and energy. Offered in collaboration with the
Clothing: yoga/sweat pants or other clothing that is easy to move around in.
