$30.00 ($24.00 Member Price)
This Fall, the dance program is thrilled to have Tori Lawrence + Co. in our studios as they prepare for a main stage performance on November 4-5th. Following the performance, Tori Lawrence will offer a Master Class in choreographing for the camera, open to performance/video artists, and Intermediate-Advanced dancers ages 15+.
In this introductory film-making workshop, students will learn the pre-production basics of composing movement for the camera. The workshop will consist of short exercises designed to build foundational skills in cinematography. Students will learn various tools for image design as well as deepen their understanding of screen-dance.
