With Alice Nelson
Saturday, February 9, 12:00 – 6:00pm
Clowns aren’t just for birthdays….think of Mr.Bean, Lucille Ball, Charlie Chaplin, Carol Burnett and the hilarious clowns of Cirque du Soleil! In this class, students will share their sense of humor through games and ensemble exercises. They will explore physical comedy, character clown work and comic routine construction. They will work towards developing an availability to play for the audience.
