Class and Workshop Descriptions

Movement in Shakespeare (ages 10-18)
Date: Tuesdays, April 1-April 29
Time: 4:30-6:00pm
Location: Wesley Chapel
Details: Time for movement exploration! This acting centered 5-week course will teach students how to use movement as a method for building a character and bringing text to life. Students will explore scenes and speeches and participate in games and exercises designed to explore the expressive possibilities of movement in Shakespeare.    
Teacher: Sean Scrutchins
Tuition: $100

'Playing Pretend' Characters in Disguise (ages 8-18)
Date: Saturday, April 12
Time: 10:00am-3:30pm
Location: Wesley Chapel
Details: Shakespeare’s characters aren’t always what they seem! In this one-day workshop, students will bring to life scenes from some of Shakespeare’s famous plays in which a character hides his or her true self and dons a disguise. Sometimes a disguise is used for comic effect, and at other times, to escape from tragic circumstances. This workshop gets to the heart of what acting is really about: the taking on and off of different identities!        
Teacher: Sean Scrutchins  
Tuition: $55

Rapping with Shakespeare (ages 8-18)
Date: Saturday, May 3
Time: 10:00am-3:30pm

Details: Did you miss our Shakespeare and Rap workshop in the fall?  Back by popular demand, Karen Dabney is back to help you explore your inner rapper! Shakespeare starts us off by giving us a great beat to work with: iambic pentameter. This one-day workshop will focus on using the language of the Bard to create some raps of our own.
