Spring is a time of new beginnings. Resolve to begin something new in your life – start working towards freeing your body! Remember how much fun it was to run through the green grass, roll down hills and blow dandelion seeds into the wind when you were little? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to be as free as you were when you were a kid in the spring? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to play and be that free in your acting? All that and more awaits you in movement class …

This term we’ll again be splitting time: 2 ½ hours of Movement plus 1 hour of the Meisner Repetition exercise, however for a twist that we started a couple of terms ago and had some fun with, we’ll take the Repetition into text, for those of you wondering how to apply Repetition to scenework. The class will be tailored to the participants, so whether you have Meisner experience or not, please join us!

The Movement work is a great warm-up for the Meisner exercise. However, you can take one or the other, if you don’t want to take both.

For those of you who have never tried my movement class, it is a powerful, fun way to release tensions in your body, explore new ways of moving and most importantly, improve your acting! Not to mention renew your instinct to play! (No dance experience required.)

Come play with us!
