This class focuses on developing an advanced corporeal expression through a series of interdisciplinary physical vocabularies. Students learn how to execute high-octane stage combat maneuvers, tumbling, acrobatics, martial arts, and dance. 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.

Start your summer off right with this two-week after school intensive. Teens, using their creative talents, collaborate with theater professionals to create an original script and score spoofing one of today’s most beloved characters: “the boy who-”… well, you know the rest.

Participants cultivate innovative ideas to successfully create a new work in a supportive professional environment.  Their experience culminates in a performance on the Syentic stage for family and friends to see. The script the teens create is then handed down to the following camp sessions, building the foundation for the rest of the summer.
