Vocal, dance and acting technique will be incorporated into mock auditions, group songs and solos.
DANCE FOR ACTORS 9-10:30am

All actors need to know how to dance, or at least move really well. Dance is a core element in all theatrical forms: plays, melodramas, cabarets and, of course, musicals. Students will be introduced to basic techniques and styles of theatrical dance and will learn to incorporate them into character development and storytelling. No prior dance experience is required. So, if you're an actor, but don't know your flea hop from your frug, come join us!

In this mime survival guide, students will develop a tool kit useful for such inevitabilities as getting trapped in a box, swimming in molasses, reaching for things that aren't there, or having to live off invisible food. They will explore a basic mime emotion, action and character vocabulary for creating silent illusions, comic skits, and rhododendrons. Plus there'll be a quiet little show at the end so family and friends can also take a trip into this world of silent fantasy too. This class will enhance acting and comedy skills, and teach you how not to spill your imaginary glass of water.
