What we do?
Our young artists training programs will benefit all performers, regardless of their level of expertise and further the education and the development of each artist.
Our studio is separated into distinct divisions. Each program is focused on building upon the performers foundation, strengthen their abilities to create characters, as well as understanding the style of the work they are bringing to life in performance.
The Dramatic Arts Studio will concentrate on techniques for the actor building upon their foundation to strengthen their abilities to create characters through the script as well as understanding the style of the work their are bringing to life in performance.
American Musical Theater workshops will focus on the different styles presented on Broadway during the past 100 years of the American Musical Theater canon, with emphasis on text and style.
SAS Opera Studio specializes and emphasizes the ability to create, build, and sustain a character. Programs feature preparation and performance of scenes, acts, or complete operas. At various times during the year we will offer master classes by visiting artists such as singers, conductors, and managers.
Our programs are designed and conducted to be constructive, friendly and supportive for all who attend while learning and polishing their skills through a process of preparation and study. In most programs, there will be rehearsals leading to the goal of a performance. These programs allow each participant the maximum amount of attention and interaction during the length of the program.
Our participants usually range in experience from university undergraduates/graduates to the working professional. The faculty consists of various specialists in their respective field of expertise. We also feature visiting faculty members who will preside over discussions and masterclasses.
Class vs Workshop?
SAS Performing Arts Studios offer both class training and workshop sessions.
What are the differences between the two?
Class training is the act of providing information and instruction to someone. It is the act of teaching and or developing skills, knowledge, etc. in a student. Workshops, on the other hand, are like training events, in which the basic information is provided. Workshops can be used to create or generate plans, analysis, or design that supports the employees and/or the organization.
A workshop could also be seen as a class that may be part of a larger educational offering. In a workshop, time is given for the participants to try out the techniques and methods that are being taught. This can be achieved either on their own or in smaller groups.
