Find Your Funny

SammyThere is a new basic burlesque session starting Sept. 24. Basic is offered on Wednesdays at 7:30 and Thursdays at 6:15. Choose the option that works best for you. Register for class now!

Also, the next specialty class is ‘Finding Your Funny & Character Confidence’ starting Sept. 23 and will run for 4 weeks.

This movement based class with professional physical theater specialist Sammich the Tramp is open to performers and non-performers alike. This class will focus on character work through physicality and help students naturally find their funny by exploring elements of comedy and comedic timing as well as discussing what makes audiences laugh. Students will work to physically “tell a story” through specificity in their movement, expression and actions, will build physical characters through a series of group exercises, and will work on short scenes. Whether a dancer wanting to create more impactful performances, an actor looking to broaden their horizons, or anyone wanting to build confidence, this class will be very beneficial and a whole lot of fun. Students should dress to move and wear comfortable shoes. [register]
