Weekend Immersion: Act Refinement


Date: Oct 12 - 14, 2018
Cost: $325
Instructor: Elsie & Serenity Smith
Schedule: Friday 5 - 9 pm; Saturday & Sunday 9 am - 1 pm

So you've been working on your act, and it's, well, not exactly what you dream it can be. In order to rock your auditions and really wow the booking agents (and audience!) let us help you bring all the pieces together. Open the door to the phenomenal performer inside you through group, one-on-one and open training times—all led by experienced devisers and circus choreographers who will challenge your brain and body to take you to the next level.

Bring us an act that you can run from start to end and we'll work together to deconstruct, edit, reorganize, and add detail and polish while never losing sight of the meaning you place behind your work. All acts are welcome, from ground to air, to manipulation and balancing, from traditional to aerial dance and contemporary and anything in between.

Participants must be able to perform their 3 - 5 1/2 minute act with frequency over the weekend. This workshop is for students looking to strengthen their presentations for circus school auditions, professionals with new works as well as aspiring performers polishing their first act.
