Act Creation & Performance Mentorship
Monday, 4/17 - Saturday, 4/22/2017
Age 16+
Led by NECCA Faculty

Feeling lost in how to finish your act? Not sure why your acts don’t have the impact you want them to have? Is this your first time putting your hard work into an artistic package for performance? Work with a mentor coach to help you get past all that and perform your finished piece in our Showcase of Circus on Saturday, April 22.

Come to this week-long event equipped with an act/piece in its middle or late stage of development , or bring an act you’ve already put in front of an audience that you want to improve or recreate for a new setting. Please bring costume selections to the workshop. You will:

- Work with a coach in your skill area to smooth transitions, refine purpose and develop your musicality.
- Develop your technical plan for the stage including creating a tech sheet
- Work with your mentor to bring your act to life on stage in front of an audience.
- Following the performance you’ll meet with your mentor for feedback on the performance
- Receive high resolution photos for your portfolio by June 1, 2017.

This workshop includes:
- a 2 hour semi-private lesson each day
- open studio training times during the week
- Mentoring through both the technical rehearsal and performance.

To apply, please complete the form below no later than April 1 and include a video of your “work in progress” which must include skill sequencing and your final music selection.
