Theater Games is an eight week class designed to start exposing children to the exciting world of theater. Classes will be 45 minutes of improvisational games and stagecraft. Topics that will be discussed will include direction, character, and movement. The last class in the session will include a small performance. Some work will be required outside of class
This 8-week course serves as an introduction to the craft of acting. The curriculum involves outlining the basics of acting technique and stagecraft through improvisational games and mini scene work. Participants would contribute to their own ideas to a short performance at the end of the session. The goal is for students to learn how to create and build a character with objective, physicality, and honest emotions.
This course focuses on monologue and scene work through classic and contemporary dramatic literature as well as films. Improv games and scoring techniques are discussed and practiced in each class. Students are guided through individual and group scenes. This class requires some outside rehearsal and practice. Performances of scenes and monologues will occur every quarter months.
This musical class utilizes a live accompanist to allow students to gain experience with an accompanist/teacher/student dynamic. Classes involve solo pieces as well as duets, trios, and larger group numbers from musicals, operettas, and films. Each class begins with a quick warm up and discussion on style and technique. Most of the class time is devoted to stop-and-go performances of the selected repertoire with the class participating as an active, learning audience. This class requires some outside research and rehearsal. Performances are given every 3-4 months.
Masterclasses are an integral part of higher education in voice. Each of these classes will be an hour to ninety minutes and provide the student with an opportunity for additional faculty feedback as well as a way to learn by watching other students. There are several dates to choose from, each with different instructors and themes. Each class has a limit of 6 spots that will cost $20 for Infuzion students and $30 for participants not enrolled in the studio. That fee pays for the instructor and accompanist. Below is the schedule with an explanation of each instructor’s background and style. Enrollment for each master class will close the Thursday previous.
