Acting Workshops

Youth Connection is excited to offer two unique 1-day acting workshops in collaboration with Mudlark Theater.  Registration begins Friday, October 20th at 9:00am.

STAGE COMBAT
This workshop will be an introduction to hand-to-hand stage combat that teaches students the art of physical storytelling with their bodies. Elaborate character backstories will be created to explain the rationale for each conflict. The combat sequences will challenge the students to maintain high stakes and emotional intensity, while being safe at the same time.

LONGFORM IMPROV
Do you enjoy making zany characters? Do you tend to make big, bold choices in life? Well, then Longform Improv is for you! Longform is the art of making up whole plays as you go along. Learn the techniques used by professional improvisers as you and your fellow students form a strong, supportive team.

The minimum number of participants per workshop is 8, maximum is 12.
