Classes


Name: Meet The Artist Series
Description: Meet some of Broadway’s most gifted artists. An intimate setting where you’ll be able to hear the experiences of a professional actor, director, choreographer, casting director or agent currently working in the entertainment industry. The artist will discuss the challenges of the business, backstage anecdotes, and career choices. Past participants have included two time Tony Award Winner and television star Joanna Gleason, Tony Award winner, Karen Zieamba of "Contact," Tony Award Winner Frank Wood, Tony Award Winner Bebe Neuwirth, Tony Nominee Dick Scanlon (author of "Thoroughly Modern Millie") and also artists from "The Lion King," "The Producers," "Beauty and the Beast," "Hairspray," and "Mama Mia" to name a few.

Name: Enter Acting
Description: An acting workshop taught by an experienced Broadway professional exploring creative possibilities in building trust in one’s talent, finding the truth of the moment and developing the whole actor. This workshop utilizes an actor’s greatest gift, the imagination. Various exercises are carefully crafted to meet the needs of the acting student. Past teachers include Broadway veterans, Julia Gibson ("Stanley," "Uncle Vanya," "Angels in America," "'night, Mother") and Tony Award Winner Frank Wood ("Side Man"), both of whom hold a Masters of Fine Arts from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

Name: Selling Yourself
Description: A two-part workshop taught by an experienced director discussing audition preparation and getting the job. The first workshop concentrates on choosing material, finding an emotional connection to that material, and rehearsing organically and productively. Students return the following day performing cold readings or prepared monologues while the director takes notes and gives constructive criticism discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the actor. This workshop is a valuable learning experience for the serious actor. Past teachers have included Craig Wroe, author of three books on the working actor and playwright/Broadway actor, Michael Watson.

Name: Everybody Dance: Movement for Actors
Description: An experience of expressing movement in a positive and joyful way. Letting down defenses and sauntering across the floor. Ignoring all those voices that told you YOU couldn't dance. Great for singers and actors who are self-conscious about their bodies and dancing. (Dancing class for non-dancers)

Name: Fosse Workshop
Description: Learn the style of Bob Fosse, the legendary Broadway and film director/choreographer. Winner of the Tony, Oscar, and Emmy, he changed Broadway history. Taught by an experienced dancer that has appeared on Broadway in a Fosse musical. Past teachers have included Dana Moore (appears in the Fosse video) and Jonathan Cerulllo, Broadway choreographer and cast member from Fosse's "Sweet Charity."
