Singer's Workout
Saturdays
11:00am - 1:30pm

 

An opportunity to refine your singing book and develop new material, with an experienced coach and a room of seasoned fellow performers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join coach/accompanist Brenda Varda in a weekly workout, where you can polish audition and performance pieces. Perfect your process of working on songs, while getting valuable, experienced feedback. Whether legit or pop or rock or jazz, this workshop allows you to identify intent, styles, and technique - and refine your performance goals. During the 4-week session, artists will pick 2-3 songs, and up the performance game with strategies to reach a new level of excellence.

 

Each class will begin with a short warm-up and then do two rounds of performance -- the first with in-depth critique and discussion, and the second with each artist having the chance to 'redux' - taking the feedback and bringing it to the next round of performance. Varda has developed a critique system that supports each artist, and also targets individual issues so that singers reach new heights...so at the end of four-weeks you'll have new and/or refined material.

 

We'll also bring in guest directors once a month, giving singers a chance for feedback from the other side of the table. AND - every 8 weeks- there will be an opportunity to do a performers' concert at Chromolume.

 

Class rate is $150 for four sessions! (expires two months from date of purchase)

 

Saturdays 11:00am - 1:30pm

Modern Jazz
Mondays
10:00am - 11:30am

 

Modern Jazz Dance Class!

 

 

 

 

Modern Jazz is based on a specific and codified technique. It is a tonic and musical dance, with a specific vocabulary, enabling dancers to experience their bodies in a different way than that of Contemporary Dance or Ballet, through isolations, syncopated and disjointed rhythms. It involves the body as a whole. This class will be a mix of French and American teaching, and you will perform several exercises before you begin to learn a choreography. A great amount of attention will be paid to the body/movement, so that you can dance safely and progress serenely. You may hear anything from current jazz music to electro/pop music each week. All levels welcome. Great for beginner/intermediate students!

 

Mondays, 10:00am-11:30am
