SoBe Arts Summer Programs for Adults, Teens, Kids & Tots

SoBe Arts Dance Program for All Ages. Students will work with professional dancers and choreographers and have fun learning the techniques of modern and traditional dance. They will also create costumes and props... and finally perform in a dance created for them, by them, and by fellow participants (possibly accompanied by live music by students from the music program). Dance Instructor: Lara Tinari.

SoBe Arts Musical Theater Program for All Ages. These classes help the students take steps to becoming a triple threat performer: Actor - Singer - Dancer. Participants will focus on scenes, songs, and choreography from musicals old and new. Topics learned will include: bringing characterization to a song and choreography, defining a character, vocal techniques, and mastering the various musical theatre techniques and styles and acting, dance and voice. Instructors: voice instructor, Katheen Bell; acting instructor, Glen Lawrence; dance instructor Lara Tinari.

SoBe Arts Acting Program for All Ages. Young Actors work with theater professionals and will receive intensive training in acting for theater and film and finally perform in a production created for them, by them and your fellow participants. For Adult Actors returning to acting as well as those new to the discipline are our focus. Emphasis is on a vital part of actor training: a reliable and repeatable technique, a 'way of working' on auditions, scenes, monologues and roles to keep the actor working. Based on Shurtleff's 12 Guideposts from his seminal book AUDITION, with added exposure to the Meisner technique and others, the class is 'study in action' as actors (both children and adults) work on scenes and monologues with video taping and playback to accelerate their progress. Instructor - Glen Lawrence.
