This class may be for you if you:
The class may NOT be for you if you:
Is class on Monday, Wednesday, or both?
Both! Both sections meet on both Monday and Wednesday, one section meets 10am-1pm and the other meets 7pm-10pm. This means you will need to be available on both Monday and Wednesday to attend this class.
I can’t travel to NYC. Can I still attend the class / be in the final show?
Yes! The first 4 weeks of class will all be on online, and the last week will be hybrid, meaning participants can attend at Recess in NYC, but also can attend online through zoom. The final show livestream will be produced in NYC, but it will be an online event meaning participants can still perform and participate remotely
I don’t like to be perceived, do I have to perform on camera?
Not necessarily! We’ll be working in collaborative groups which will often involve some people being more the focus of attention and others working behind the scenes. There are many different ways to perform and you can find one that feels comfortable for you!
