The workshop will layout methods for helping your students arrive at rehearsal ready and available to be directed. Have you ever had students that couldn’t take direction even though they were trying, that only were able to perform their role in one limited way, no matter what you asked for? Approaches to memorization, exercises for warmups and practices for integrating blocking and lines will help you enable your students succeed at close work.
