What Specialty Classes Do You Want to Take?

Postby smerlin » December 15th, 2005, 2:51 pm

I taught some great specialty classes this fall and I'm planning my 2006 schedule right now.

I've come up with a list of ideas of classes that I want to teach that I think people will be interested in taking. I've also realized that I want the classes to be 4 hours instead of 3 so we can really get some where.

My ideas so far are listed above

My other question is: What Other Specialty Classes Would You Like to See?

(I could teach them myself or arrange to have an outside teacher offer them, so don't limit the ideas.)

I would like to take several of these, but the poll only allows one answer!
Besides directing, I'm interested in singing, musical games, and characters, especially.

this may get covered in the cross-training stuff for 2006, but i would be keen on taking a johnstone master class for experienced improvisers.

like 3-4 hours covering philosophic approaches, narratives and audience play. these are things i have read about, but have no practical experience with (outside comedysportz short form).

yeasche.

Another idea I had-
I'd be interested in a workshop focused on Alexander-technique style warm ups for improv- ways to warm up the body so that you get rid of your every day holding patterns and make your body into a blank canvas that's more ready to receive different postures and a wider range of gestures and body language. I've taken a class like this at a theatre workshop.
