THEATER GAMES
Monday – Friday, July 8th – 12th, 2013  ●  9:30am – 12pm

What could be more fun and educational than becoming a better actor through playing many different theater games intended to improve your skills as a performer?  In this class, we will explore lots of activities that utilize your stage skills, your memory, your imagination and your movement ability.  It promises to be a memorable week of learning and laughs. Instructor: David Macaluso.

THE FOUNDATIONS OF GOOD SINGING
Monday – Friday, July 8th – 12th, 2013  ●  1pm – 3:30pm

Do you like to sing? This class is for students who want to learn how to sing using correct breathing support and to develop the stamina needed to sing while moving onstage –this class is NOT about learning how to sing in the American Idol vocal style.  The class will culminate in a presentation for family and friends. Instructor: Paul Sigrist.

IMPROVISATION
Monday – Friday, July 15th – 19th, 2013  ●  1pm – 3:30pm

Learning how to improvise is an important skill every actor needs.  In this class, we will explore many fun ways you can achieve the skills needed to do improv, including imagination exercises, improvised scene work both alone and with other actors, relaxation techniques and storytelling exercises–and, in the process, you’ll have a really good time. Instructor: Paul Sigrist.

SHAKESPEARE FOR YOUNG ACTORS
Monday – Friday, July 22nd – 26th, 2013  ●  1pm – 3:30pm

Last summer our Shakespeare classes were so popular that we are offering them again!  Shakespeare is FUN and COOL and no one should be afraid of him.  Come join us for this exciting class that is full of surprises–and if you took this class last year, come take it again (we’ll find new scenes for you to do!).  The last day of class is a fully staged and memorized series of Shakespeare scenes performed for family and friends. Instructor: Paul Sigrist.

Morning classes will be held in the Saratoga Spa State Park Administrative Building (on the back side of the Spa Little Theater).

Afternoon classes will be held at Bloom: A Movement Space, 153 Regent Street, Saratoga Springs (in the basement).
