Spring Acting Workshop Ages 11-17

Instructor: Sheri Lahris
Wednesdays 7:00 to 8:00 pm

The Actors Workshop is an acting class that focuses on combining creative intuition with concrete technical skills. Students learn to tap into emotional truth while exploring how mental and physical techniques can nurture unconscious inspiration. They practice exercises that help them vocally project, physically tell stories, and emotionally and intellectually connect to characters.    Our goal is to boost confidence and self-esteem while also teaching the fundamentals of performance technique.

*A discounted rate is offered for taking multiple classes at the studio.

Click to Sign Up 2 Siblings for Kid's Yoga @ $140

Instructor: Atma Khalsa 
Through - May 29th
Fridays, 4:30 to 5:30 pm

In children's yoga classes we use imaginative poses, singing songs, and playing games. We are playful, pretending we are many things, such as cats, dogs, trees, and mountains. We imagine traveling to such places as the garden, seashore, or mountains.

The class moves through poses quickly to keep the children's attention and to release energy. Partner poses and group meditations give children the experience of teamwork and trust with others; naming and teaching their very own yoga poses provides children with leadership and confidence-building skills. We help children build a greater awareness of their body physically and emotionally. Often this leads to greater self-discipline, self-confidence, better body coordination, and ability to focus.

For any questions please contact Atma.

classical ballet division: level-based ballet & modern training

The Classical Ballet Division begins with students (ages 7+) who are ready for serious ballet training. The level-based ballet syllabus uses primarily Vagonova technique and incorporates elements from the dance theory and techniques of master teacher Finis Jhung, the Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D.), and a continuance of the our teaching philosophy. Students practice classical ballet technique, learn to use their body correctly through awareness of kinetics, coordination, anatomy, and proper body alignment, and strive to become well-trained, artistic, musical, and adaptable dancers. Dancer's are always encouraged to find joy and expression in their art and share that gift with others.

Contemporary, modern, and lyrical technique classes, skills classes, pre-pointe/pointe, dance conditioning, and choreography are extensions to the ballet program for these dedicated dancers.
