Monday June 3 Workshop ("Dancing Through Life"), 75 Stutson St, Monday, 03. June 2019

Monday June 3, 2019 6:30 - 8:30 pm "Dancing Through Life"
This aim of this movement class is not to be confused with that of a dance class so if you're not a "dancer" - fear not. All movement used on stage as part of the storytelling is not choreographed by the choreographer. Many times those movements are developed by you, the actor. Musical theatre performers need to move with ease in period costume from go-go dresses in productions of Sweet Charity, to multiple layers of heavy cotton undergarments in the dresses designed for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, to men's breeches in The Scarlet Pimpernel. Directors rely on actors to use their bodies in stylized movement for shows like Pippin; actors playing supporting roles in Once on This Island need to be uninhibited when creating the movement for Papa Ge, Mother Earth and the God of Water; the ensemble of Brigadoon needs to create believable and authentic characters when selling their wares in MacConnachy Square; and company members playing bystanders in scenes like the picnic in Carousel and the auction in Oklahoma need to not only look comfortable but to make choices indicative of the show's setting and time period. This class will help young musical theatre performers to build confidence in their movement choices.
