Do you crave connection with creative and artistic people, like yourself? Are you interested in the Performing Arts and eager to learn all you can about the craft? Whether you’ve got experience or not – we’ve got a class for you! SteppingStone’s Teen Workshops feature process-driven learning, in a specific theatrical skill set, with classes structured to create strong ensembles and promote a supportive and fun classroom community. Join your peers in an inclusive, safe, and creative learning environment where you will feel comfortable expressing yourself and growing as an Artist. Our Teaching Artists structure classes to minimize competition or comparison. Instead, we challenge everyone to put in the work, stretch outside their comfort zones, and be open-minded in learning new techniques. With this approach, we create strong theatre foundations, a hunger & drive for artistic development, and a network of peers & mentors to help support you in your theatre journey.
THEATRE LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
Exploring a variety of theatre games & exercises intended to target & refine theatre skill-sets
Rich collaboration – contributing, discussing, & integrating ideas into an ensemble-driven Showcase of Work
Using research, critical analysis, and cultural context to develop and enhance Showcase
Director’s notes – observation, suggestion, support, & feedback to introduce and refine performance concepts
Sharing in leadership responsibilities throughout the class
Intentional time dedicated to group-reflection and self-reflection on artistic work
Register for the grade your student will ENTER in Fall 2020
Hybrid Experience: In-person and online! We will meet in-person each morning from 9:00am-12:00pm with all safety precautions in place. In the afternoon, from 2:30pm-4:00pm we will regroup online in our Virtual Studio to continue class.
Develop & refine your singing technique and learn how to “act the song”. Learn to select songs that are appropriate for your vocal range. Practice cutting & rehearsing your songs so you feel more confident singing solos, singing in a group, or singing during musical auditions. Perform in a Showcase for family & friends on the final day of class!
