7:00pm – 10:00pm each Tuesday in our downtown studio.

$200 for the full session – (Students can also purchase single classes as long as they are in chronological order. eg: attend Week 1 and Week 2, but not mix and matching sessions such as purchasing with Week 1 and Week 4 as these classes are progressive.  To purchase single week classes, please contact Maddie at 509-378-6517)

Course Topics:

  • May 4, 2021: Introduction to Fundamentals.  Focusing on “nowness,” the master class will have hands-on group exercises that develop mindfulness and presence skills, and lay the groundwork for disciplining imagination and exercising the creative brain when approaching a written text.
  • May 11, 2021: Fundamental Concepts in Practice.  Focusing on “receptivity,” the master class will have hands-on group and individual exercises to develop sensitivity to one’s self, the other, the room, and one’s partner. This will lay the groundwork for the application of fundamentals for performing with a written text.
  • May 18, 2021: Fundamental Concepts at Work: – Focusing on the “job at hand,” the master class will have individual exercises and critical feedback to develop a sense of purpose and useful application of Performance Fundamentals in auditions, jobs, and day-to-day training for self-cultivation and sustainability.
  • May 25, 2021: Show me the Fundies! – The Fundamentals of Performance cultivate into a video monologue audition that is suitable for one’s reel or for general audition submissions that will feature material chosen by the master class participant. Also, the session will conclude with a brief feedback session with constructive criticism for each participant.
