Led by senior instructors we offer a dynamic exercise routine from week to week, making sure to provide a balance between pushing students to their limits, while not overstressing their bodies.

Mondays 7:10pm – 8:40pm
Synetic Technique is a highly specialized class that focuses on developing a heightened sense of body awareness and corporeal expression through a series of inter-disciplinary physical vocabularies. Stemming from the rigorous training our Synetic company members endure, this class breaks down this unique synthesis of techniques, making them approachable and fun for the students as they navigate how to control their bodies in a way never thought possible before. From a head-to-toe breakdown of isolation work students then progress to a more demanding series of exercises that develop plasticity, acceleration, and coordination. Body waves, footwork, pantomime, ballet and gymnastics are just a few examples of the various disciplines explored. Connecting the mind to the body, this class creates a capable and highly adaptable physical awareness boosting confidence and leaving the student with a skill set taught nowhere else, like nowhere else.
Acting for Physical Theater
Acting for Physical Theater is an intensive and immersive class that focuses on advanced acting concepts and their application to movement, character, and environment, while re-examining foundational skills through a physical lens. Concepts such as living truthfully, emotional life, objectives & tactics, actor’s preparation, and characterization are developed through status games, relationship dynamics, group and solo exercises drawn from the rich traditions of physical theatre.
