You can become an excellent performer. The Pocket wants to help you take your craft to the next level. Whether you’ve never been on stage before, or have been performing for years, we want to give you concrete skills to help you succeed both on and off the stage.
We believe that training is invaluable for all levels of involvement in the arts. So we’ll be offering 3 basic types of classes:
- Beginners Classes: You saw something on our stages and you think you’d like to try it. We’ll get you the right instructors and get you comfortable with the new form. At the end you’ll have a show for your friends and family.
- Advanced Workshops: For those of you who already know what you’re doing, but want specific instruction on improving your craft. These multi-week classes will whip you into performance shape.
- Expert Lectures: Weekly we will bring in an expert to address specific topics useful to performers. Learn how to: talk to press, tour your show, apply to festivals, audition, etc. It’s hard to make a living as an artist, but some people have done it and can teach you how!
(We pay our instructors a competitive wage for their time: $25-$40/hour depending upon enrollment. If you would like to teach at The Pocket please contact us now!)
