Anime is here to stay! Some think it’s just a fad, but it has been around since the early 20th century, and has evolved along with the more realistic Manga style, into a craze that has teens flocking to bookstores to buy graphic novels. Some artists are even adapting classic tales like Romeo & Juliet to the style, so get out your pens! In this camp, the instructor leads teens through drawing exercises and examples, and the teens meet other artists who are on the same page. For those considering writing, the instructor will provide tools to get started. This half day camp is for students ages 12 to 16.

WORKSHOPS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP

DANCE: NEW Intro to Afro-Cuban Folkloric Dance with Susana Arenas Pedroso

In this dynamic workshop accompanied by live drumming, students will learn some basics of the classic Afro-Cuban folkloric repertoire, a theatrical dance tradition respected around the globe. Learn Yoruba and Congo dances that were recreated in Cuba, as well as authentic Afro-Cuban rumba, a complex of social dances created in the barrios of Havana and Matanzas. Susana is a masterful dancer who has been active in the Bay Area as a performer, teacher, and choreographer since 1998. No experience required. Instructor: Susana Arenas Pedroso, Arenas Dance Company Location: Dance Studio Note: Dancers should wear loose-fitting comfortable clothes, and women should bring wide, circular, ankle-length skirts if they have them. This workshop is underwritten through the generous supports of the Grand Foundation.

DANCE: Intro to Cuban-Style Salsa Dance

DANCE: Intro to Rueda (Cuban-Style Salsa in a Circle)

Salsa dance, like food, is different in different places. Cuban-style Salsa (sometimes called “Casino” in Cuba), is distinguished from other Salsa styles from LA, New York, Colombia, and other places by being more circular and less linear. Cuban-style Salsa is very dynamic, never static; the partners are always circling around each other. In this class we’ll start from the basics, covering the fundamental rhythm of the dance (1,2,3), the basic step (“Guapea”), fundamental turns (“Enchufla”), and the all-important cross body lead (“Dile que no”). Instructor: Ryan Mead, Rueda con Ritmo Location: Dance Studio Note: No prior salsa experience, special shoes, or partner is necessary. Can be taken with Intro to Rueda for a discount.

DRAMA: Storytelling - Bringing Stories to Life at Home and School NE W

Children are always ready to listen to a good yarn, especially when the yarn spinner is acting the tale out. Some spinners are ready to weave, and some have to climb into the storytelling loom, but everyone can weave a good tale. The instructor will lead teachers, librarians, parents, grandparents, and any adults who work with children to discover their personal storytelling voices in a 2-weekend workshop. Students are encouraged to bring children’s or other stories that must be spoken out loud. Instructor: Deborah Littleton Location: Musco Music Room Note: Students are encouraged to bring in stories.

8

Rueda, meaning “wheel” in Spanish, is a way of dancing Cuban-style salsa in a group, with a circle of couples. A bit like American Square Dancing, the Rueda is led by a cantante (or “caller”), who directs the dancers to perform the same movements together, frequently changing partners. In this class you’ll apply the Cuban-style Salsa skills you learned in the previous class. We’ll cover fundamental calls and steps such as “Pásala con las manos” (Pass your partner with your hands), “Dame Una” (Give me a new partner), “Adios” (Goodbye), and more. Instructor: Ryan Mead, Rueda con Ritmo Location: Dance Studio Note: Prerequisite: Intro to Cuban-style Salsa (taught earlier in the same day). No special shoes or partner is necessary. Can be taken with Intro to Cuban-Style Salsa for a discount.

DRAMA: Auditioning Skills Workshop Students will work on audition and cold reading skills to be able to audition for school plays, community theatre, or film and television. They will learn how to get an edge on the competition and to calm their stage fright response. The workshop also helps with presentation skills. Students can feel free to bring a prepared comedic, dramatic, classical monologue(s) or a musical theatre audition piece to class for feedback.Vocalists can bring CD accompaniment. Instructor: Deborah Littleton Location: Musco Music Room Note: Students are encouraged to find their own audition materials outside of class.
