Workshops are available only in conjunction with a performance. Students will explore the art of physical theater and learn the basics of juggling, mime, magic and movement. They will be actively engaged with these new skills and will discover how the arts can be used to express ideas in new, exciting ways. Theater is a great vehicle to develop self esteem, movement, juggling and mime (areas in which sequencing is an integral part of the experience). All this while students study the finer points of going down imaginary staircases, vanishing into the floor. Learning was never so much fun! Maximum 30 students.
