Find Your Voice: Character Building Workshop
Who you are on stage influences style choices: are you campy or vampy? Classy or sassy? Or do you not care for rhymes at all? Having a developed stage personality is a central part of burlesque and variety theatre, and a technique that can help you make specific choices. This workshop takes on the fundamentals of character creation and persona development to increase your working knowledge of the stage. More seasoned performers can engage with the writing techniques and routine buidling to add new shades and dimensions to their persona.

Bring something to write with and wear comfortable clothes.

MULTI-WORKSHOP DISCOUNT when you sign up for both "Find Your Voice" and "Stay in Character." Look for the Multi-Workshop Discount section on the registration form.

Students will work in pairs and with group choreography to make specific character choices that add personal flavor to the choreography. Registering for "Find Your Voice" is recommended.
