In Improvisation Workshop, you’ll experience the transformative nature of group play and creation. The lessons are rooted in Viola Spolin’s foundational theatre games, mindfulness, movement, storytelling and play. You will learn on-camera improvisation to tap into creativity and collaboration with your cohort. Learn to trust your instincts as an actor, develop comic timing and collaborate with others.
Exciting guest artists teach you how to create interactive theatre with XR technology. You will create your own monologue or scene that exists in a 3D world utilizing avatars, filters and virtual spaces.
This exciting and action-packed class teaches students how to audition for a musical role and then prepares them to perform that role. They’ll enjoy vocal work, while learning to interpret the music and the text. Above all, they will learn what it means to "act" a song with emphasis on healthy use of the voice, how to work with others, how to sing with confidence, movement/dance for auditions and, of course, lots of fun!
