Storytelling 2: Polish Your Performance

Prerequisite:
Storytelling 1 or experience performing stories for an audience. Come to the first class with a story you would like to craft.

8 classes
Mondays, March 11 – May 6 (no class April 1)
1:00 – 2:30 pm
Park Square’s Andy Boss Thrust Rehearsal Hall

(*May 6 class time is 4:00-6:00 pm followed by a Performance and Reception in the Andy Boss Thrust Stage at 7:30.)

Enjoy Dane Stauffer’s creative style of leadership as you explore your stories on a deeper level and identify and refine your way of working. Using the stories you bring to class, we will delve further into the craft of performing: diction, ad-libbing, getting back on track, pacing and reading the room. We will also begin to explore the “circuit” of storytelling opportunities in the Twin Cities. The class will include an evening field trip to see storytellers in action.

As the class works together to craft your stories, you will become a strong community, gain confidence and discover the joy of focusing and sharing your unique perspective with the world. The class will culminate in a storytelling evening for an invited audience in Park Square Theatre’s Boss Stage.
