CSA Offers Master Classes
Circle School of the Arts is offering a series of Master Classes beginning this summer. The two-day classes are scheduled to take place throughout the school year for students in grades 7-12. Each class will be led by industry professionals. The classes will be opened to the community and participation fees will apply.
MUSICAL THEATRE ACTING | JUN 20-21, 2014
This two day intensive challenges the beginning and advanced musical theatre actor to connect their singing to the wants of the characters. The master class led by Tracy McCoy, Artistic Director of Christian Musical Theatre West Palm Beach, will focus on the actor’s elements of the production: acting, singing, and dancing.
IMPROV | AUG 8-9, 2014
A two day intensive that will develop the actor’s ability to think on their feet and outside of the box. The master class will be taught by Dave and Morgan Russell, founders of SAK Comedy Lab Orlando. Through short-form improv games, students will learn the value of saying “Yes, and” to every idea. Students will focus on believability – allowing the humor to come from honest choices rather than “going for the joke.”
MUSICAL THEATRE VOICE | OCT 3-4, 2014
Musical theatre performances are powerful when song furthers both the character’s journey and the play’s central story. This master class takes the five W’s (who, what, where, when and why) and applies them to song. Intensive master class will be led by Christi Griffith, Director of Soli Deo Gloria Music Studio.
SHAKESPEARE | JAN 9-10, 2015
This master class will crack open the mysteries of playing Shakespeare, giving students the basic tools to understand and perform his work in an active, immediate way. Students, under the direction of Morgan Russell, Director of Interactors at UCF, will gain a strong understanding of verse, prose, meter, character and intent to prepare them for continuing study.
