    • Lab session

      Saturday, May 20

      1:00pm – 4:00pm

    Directed by Ciara McCormack

    Don’t have time to do a show but want to build your skills? In this workshop, young actors will become familiar with dance as a way to get comfortable in their bodies, communicate, and create art. The afternoon will start with a dance fusion class that will introduce students to the styles of ballet, modern, and jazz. Once warmed up, they will exercise their creative and analytical brains by learning choreography and playing improvisational games. Finally, students will apply their physical knowledge by studying how movement and dance can bring characters to life on stage.
