Performance 101

MIN #: 3

MAX #: 8

$120/mo

Wednesdays from 4pm-5pm

 

Presence, posture, speech, articulation, and adaptability are just a few of the skills we can hone and cultivate through performance practice. This class is designed to combine technique, script analysis, and the theatrical process in order to develop confidence, empathy, and situational awareness. Classes will start with an introduction to a basic theatrical concept (i.e. memorization, script analysis, stage direction, etc.) to provide a solid base, followed by the students working through their performances for the class in a supportive environment. Each month, we will break down a monologue or scene before putting it on its feet for a final performance.

 

We will address questions like:

 -“What do I do with my hands?”

 -“What’s the difference between stage left and house left?”

 -“How do I embody a character?”

 -”When do I move?”

This class is designed for anyone interested in learning more about the art of acting. We will dig into the elements of building a character from the inside out while developing voice and presence. We will discuss the differences between film and theatrical acting, and engage in mock audition processes. Each student will be assigned one monologue and one scene to be performed in the last class of the session.

 

We will address questions like:

 -”What is ‘cheating out?’”

 -“What does ‘beat’ mean?”

Crafts with Kat

MIN: 4 participants MAX: 10 participants

In order to provide the necessary tools, this class requires a $20 cash supply fee reimbursement due at the beginning of the first class.

 

Artistic inspiration comes in all forms. This class aims to channel creative inspiration through crafty mediums such as yarn, perler beads, jewelry, clay. Each session will learn basic crochet stitches, create a perler masterpiece, make their own wearable art, and mold something completely unique out of a messy lump. We split our time between the regimented routine of crochet and the free form expression of playing with color and form.

 

We will work on skills like

-basic crochet technique

-color theory

-shape/form

-project completion
