A workshop can be tailored to fit the level of the students, k-adult, as well as fit into any time frame. Acting  starts with "focusing attention", which is a skill that is invaluable in any situation, and the foundation of my classes. I teach the basics of acting, including imagination, pantomime, teamwork and basic theatre terms. To explore these skills, games and exercises are used to create a kinesthetic learning environment. Students will work toward performance, the content of which is determined by each specific residency (perhaps creating their own story/plays based on the "Story Puzzle", or showcasing skills learned). FUN is always the name of the game in my classes, with a big dose of discipline and learning!

Arts-Integration training: Available to conduct teacher workshops that explore using theatre and music to teach non-traditional arts subjects (i,e: history, math, etc)
