Acting: Solo Performance - Saturday, March 2
Everyone has a story to tell, let’s find yours! In this class, students will have the opportunity to write and perform their own stories. You get to decide what you share and what you keep private.
Students will learn how to take these stories and put them together in the form of a 3-5-minute solo performance. Upon completing the Solo Performance class, students will have the skills, confidence, and repertoire to pursue solo performance opportunities in various settings, such as theaters, music venues, and more. They will also gain a deeper understanding of themselves as artists and be better equipped to express their unique creative voices.
This six-week class will meet on Saturdays: March 2, 9, 16, 23 April 6, and 13 (this final session will meet at 7PM before the grad show)— skipping March 30. Each session is 2 hours. This class has a graduation show on Saturday, April 13th where participants will perform for an audience of friends, family, and the community.
