Want to create a new aerial piece and perform in our Fall Showcase this November? Students enrolled in Performance Prep will work with a coach to create a new solo.

Solo Prep

Spend one on one time with a coach and get feedback from fellow students. A portion of this class will focus on showing each other the progress we have made with our acts. We will invite feedback from fellow students about what they liked, and we’ll discuss how and when to give our feedback, how to phrase content that is hard to hear, and generally practice being vulnerable!  Act creation can be a vulnerable process, so buckle up! As performers, we are in the literal spotlight, so we must work to refine and polish our tricks. Smoothing out transitions and adding our personal flare is where the artistry lies! Hone in on your artistry and let your freak flag fly!

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of connection and the path to the feeling of worthiness. If it doesn’t feel vulnerable, the sharing is probably not constructive.” -Brené Brown
