The Power of Poetry & Song: A Natural Connection w/ Lisa Simon
Do you write your dreams in rhythm, rhyme and melody? Perhaps you have written song lyrics. Think of some of Broadway’s favorite signature songs such as "Where is Love" or the jazz standard, "I Left My Heart In San Francisco." Come explore how emotions and personal experiences can be written as poetry or song lyrics of whimsy, praise, lament, and celebration!
 
Dance to Tell the Song w/ Sharon Took-Zozaya
Communicate the emotional power of song through dance. In this lively class we will explore the communicative power of theatrical dance set to the lyrics and instrumentals of popular music. Class begins with a gentle warm up leading to more fully developed expressive dance combinations. Students of all abilities are warmly welcomed and encouraged to move at their own pace.

Audition with Confidence w/ Robin Aronson
Learn the steps of the audition process, whether you want to try out for plays or just to satisfy your curiosity about this fundamental theatre practice.  No memorization required.  Informative and fun introduction to the skills involved, including cold, unrehearsed reading from scripts.

We are proud to offer "The Performing Experience" in partnership with NextStage Productions, a Theatre and Performing Arts collaborative focusing on the aging population, and designed “for, by and of” adults over 50 yrs of age. Their purpose is to demonstrate in action the many ways in which elders improve their quality of life and enrich our culture and our communities. The collaboration with Cabrillo Extension, Cabrillo Stage and the Cabrillo VAPA Division began in 2013 and has continued. We hope you will attend these workshops, which are samples of what is unique about the Creative Arts experience and the larger program that's coming in the Summer of 2015. www.nextstagesantacruz.org
