Everyone can act. Everyone can improvise. Anyone who wishes to can play in the theater and learn to become “stageworthy.” ~ Viola Spolin

The course brings participants through the fundamentals of improvisation for the theatre and performance. Each workshop session, students will play theatre games and be introduced to acting and improvisation exercises that will push their boundaries, inviting them to go deeper into their intuition, work together with their fellow players and engage with the theatrical environment around them.

Work on turning fears into potentials for discovery, change the relationship between yourself and the audience, express ourselves without censorship from within and without. This course will begin to explore these fundamental principles of performance through play and the pursuit of solving acting problems on the stage.

This 15 hour course is structured for the seasoned actor who wants a refresher and a “back-to-basics” training in their career. Or beginning actors who are just beginning to find their artistic voice. Non-actors will also find the fundamental techniques introduced to them useful for their creative and interpersonal work.

This course centers experience as a main mode of teaching and participants are encouraged to come ready to play, discover, make mistakes, all the while learning useful skills for their creative development.

“There is no right or wrong way to solve a problem; there is only one way – the seeking – in which one learns by going through the process itself.”  ~ Viola Spolin

Everyone can act. Everyone can improvise. Anyone who wishes to can play in the theater and learn to become “stageworthy.” ~ Viola Spolin

This course is aimed for returning Improv students (students who have already taken “Improv Fundamentals”) and for actor-performers with experience and training under their belt.

Participants will work on deepening and developing their talents and abilities in performance and engaging with their audience. In each workshop session, participants will delve into challenging improvisation techniques and exercises to expand each participant’s capacity to experience and express themselves.

Performing on stage, in front of the camera, behind the mic and always with the audience – comes with it a special set of problems: How can we communicate better to the audience? How can we be more authentic, more expressive and creative, more ourselves?

In this 15 hour workshop, participants will work on developing an awareness and sense of playfulness with their environment; explore the foundations of character; and deepen their physicalization and acting with the total body.

You are encouraged to come ready to play seriously, to involve yourself fully, all the while learning important skills, and tapping into your innate talent and genius.

Education is to train for crises, to reach intuition and self. – Viola Spolin

Lets groove with Teacher Ahgi for the upbeat music from Bollywood and Kollywood.

“Desi Grooves” is a proposed choreo-fusion dance course blending Bollywood and Tamil styles. Led by a seasoned dancer, this course invites participants to explore choreographed routines merging the essence of both cultural dance forms while adding a modern beat to the mix.

Emphasizing the enjoyment of movement, participants will delight in the freedom of expressing themselves through dance. From the infectious energy of Bollywood’s iconic moves to the rhythmic beats of Tamil music, each session promises an immersive and enjoyable experience where participants can let loose and have fun while moving their bodies.

Designed for individuals of all dance levels, Desi Grooves offers a welcoming space for beginners and seasoned dancers alike to delve into the beauty of cultural fusion. Through engaging activities and games, participants will not only refine their dance skills but also build camaraderie and a sense of community with fellow dancers.

Throughout the course, participants will develop essential dance skills such as rhythm and timing, coordination, body movement, and expression. The syllabus will cover a diverse range of dance elements, with each session comprising a warm-up, choreography breakdown, guided rehearsals, and feedback from the instructor.

In addition to learning choreographed routines, Desi Grooves will incorporate interactive elements to enhance the overall experience such as group improvisation exercises, ensuring that participants leave each session feeling energized and inspired.

Ultimately, Desi Grooves aims to celebrate cultural diversity through the universal language of dance, fostering creativity, self-expression, and a deep appreciation for both Bollywood and Tamil music & dance.

Ahgalyah Munesbrain (Teacher Ahgi)

A simple admirer of the rhythmic cadence of music, where every beat is a reminder of the beauty that lies beyond the confines of their daily routine. It is this profound appreciation for the power of music that led them to embark on a journey of self-discovery through dance. Thus, “Desi Grooves” was born – an intimate gathering initially shared among friends, now a haven for like-minded individuals to shed inhibitions and lose themselves in the euphoria of dance. For them, dance isn’t just movement; it’s a conduit for self-expression, a momentary escape where one can embody any persona and revel in the sheer joy of existence. Through “Desi Grooves,” they invite others to join in this celebration of life, where the only requirement is to let go and sway to the rhythm of good music.
