Belly Up to the Bard
Saturdays at Des Moines DanzArts
Begin Saturday, September 19!
We are thrilled to be joining forces with Des Moines DanzArt’s Studio this fall, adding some fun new theatre classes to their diverse line-up of dance and other performing arts classes!
Acting Through Shakespeare takes the best of what we’ve learned teaching Shakespeare workshops in the schools over the years, and combines that with rich, new curriculum, fresh from Shakespeare’s Globe in London. It’s exciting stuff, and we’re looking for some intrepid tweens, teens – and even adults – who are looking to develop their acting skills as we explore the words, characters, and stories of one of the world’s greatest playwrights!
Acting Through Shakespeare is an ongoing workshop that runs Saturdays from 2:30-3:30 pm at Des Moines DanzArts Studio, 2150 Delavan Drive Suite 8 in West Des Moines. There will be 2 sections of the class: one for ages 12-14, and one for ages 15 to adult. For younger students, (ages 9-11), we also offer a beginning acting workshop on Saturdays from 1:30-2:30 PM – students will begin to play with Shakespeare as they advance in that class, but the focus will be more general.
