VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE TROUPE
THIS YEAR, MVS is creating a place for middle school students to process our ‘new normal’ through art-making. Meeting via Zoom 3 Wednesdays a month, students will co-create a brave space in which to learn songwriting, script-writing, improv (acting and vocal) and performance skill, based on what they are most interested in. The group will receive workshops on songwriting, play writing and self-care from experts in their fields.
Co-Leaders Dory Mead and Brittany Batell will work to provide a safe container where students can practice creating and supporting each other through these challenging times. The term will culminate in a virtual performance of the students’ work.
Term: February 1-June 7 14 Meetings
Tuition: $290.00 *Tuition is on a sliding scale. No one will be turned away because of lack of funds.
