The student connects the heart to the body to create a highly adaptable physical awareness and a variety of physical skills that can be applied to an actor’s process, a director’s composition, or a choreographer’s toolbox. This course prepares students for Synetic’s Teen Company.
NEW TEEN SUMMER INTENSIVE
The Wild and Wacky Wizarding World of Wiley Skylar!
Back by popular demand…with a twist!

In this two week after school intensive, teens collaborate with senior artistic company members on developing, choreographing, and staging an original play.
