There is power in silence and strength in stillness. If you want to get big laughs from your jokes and big cheers for your teasing, your reveals must make an impact. In this class, we will explore stillness and movement as contrasting tools for communication. We will focus on clarity of movement, communicating silently, building tension, and creating strong moments. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely.
"Creating Character and Embodying Emotion" (60 mins @ $20)
Every story needs a character and every character needs emotions. Using guided physical explorations, we will discover many different personalities hidden within ourselves and the physical ways they express themselves. We will learn how to create clear characters and express distinct emotions with our whole bodies. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely.

12/16, 7-9pm - POWER IN SILENCE There is power in silence and strength in stillness. If you want to get big laughs from your jokes and big cheers for your teasing, your reveals must make an impact. In this class, we will explore stillness and movement as contrasting tools for communication. We will focus on clarity of movement, stage presence, building tension, and creating strong moments. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely. No high heels. Open to all genders.

12/23, 7-9pm - CREATING CHARACTER & EMBODYING EMOTION Every story needs a character and every character needs emotions. Using guided physical explorations based on Laban acting techniques, we will discover many different personalities hidden within ourselves and the physical ways they are expressed. We will learn how to create clear characters and communicate distinct emotions with our whole bodies. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely. No high heels. Open to all genders.

12/30, 7-9pm - LANGUAGE OF THE BODY Dancing is like physical poetry; every movement is word that carries meaning. This class will illuminate the significance of common gestures and explore new ways of communicating. Using physical explorations and reflective discussions, we will examine how different body parts relate to each other in a narrative context. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely. Open to all genders.

1/6/15, 7-9pm - GIVE & TAKE: GENEROSITY & REWARD IN PERFORMANCE “Always leave them wanting more,” some say, but make sure they’re satisfied too! In Burlesque there is an open dialogue between a performer and the audience; it is a constant give-and-take. In this class, we will examine this relationship and develop ways to make it more beneficial for everyone involved. From tease and reveal to applause and tips, we’ll learn to develop our generosity and increase our rewards, to blossom and thrive in our art and our careers. Students should bring notebooks and wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely. No high heels. Open to all genders.
