Ah, summer is almost upon us! Remember how much fun it was when you were a kid and school ended and you were released to the freedom of summer? To sprawl in the green grass, or romp in the water and build sand castles on the beach, letting yourself get unapologetically covered in sand? How much fun was that? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to be as free as you were when you were a kid in the summer? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to play and be that free in your acting? You can do that and so much more in Movement class!

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.

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 handful of terms ago and have been having fun with, we’ll take the Repetition into text, for those of you wondering how to apply Repetition to scenework or who just want some additional practice. 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.

Come play with us!
