Playwriting and New Media Creation Workshop

WHEN: July 7th
TIME: Noon-5.00pm
AGES: 18+.
TUITION: $150

Never has there been a better time for ‘Creatives’ to write and produce original content.  Today, more independently produced television shows and films are gaining ‘mainstream’ attention than ever before. Actors often make the best writers. This IS the time to create your own reels, create your own web content, or your ‘indie’ one act play to take on the road.  See how successful actors are taking control of their careers by generating original content instead of waiting around for the next audition.

Actors will learn how to:

  1. Write a monologue
  2. Identify a Story Arc
  3. Understand ‘Inciting Incident’
  4. Examine ‘New Media’ and it’s impact on the commercial entertainment industry.
  5. Look at shows like ‘Breaking Bad’ and examine what makes  this a ‘good’ story.

Attending participants should arrive expecting to engage in intelligent discussion and be prepared to work creatively.

DANCE

Who doesn’t love the Disney Princesses. We will explore the fun world of dance, dress up and dance like Bell, Cinderella and Ariel. Each day we will become a new Disney Princess.

Fairy Dance Camp: Tuition: $97

Children love to pretend and dress up. In this clamp they will put on their fairy wings and fly away into a magical dance forest. Your child will have fun dancing to Fairy Music, and dressing up to tales of fairies and fantasy.

 

AcroDance Camp: Tuition: $150

AcroDance is an art form specifically for dancers. Acro has softer, more lyrical looking lines, with the emphasis being on lengthening "through" the tricks and holding pretty balances with interesting variations. In Acro, we teach our students to dance into and out of Acro tricks, with minimal obvious "prep" before and after a trick. In this one-week camp students will learn tricks and moves that they will present at the last day of camp.
