If you missed my earlier announcement, I have founded the Kat & Mouse School of Performing Arts in Second Life.
When I first started dancing in Second Life, I had no idea what I was doing, nor what I was getting into. 😛
I absolutely fell in love with choreographing dances and performing.
I know that a lot of people in SL share that love, and I’d like to help YOU get better at what you do.
My approach for classes will be a bit different than most dance classes in SL.
Teaching can be a challenge in SL, because the feedback you would normally get in a classroom isn’t there (ie, the eye-rolls of students who are bored, the confused looks of those who have gotten lost, the snores of those who stayed up too late dancing the night before). 😛
My focus, for all of my classes, will be to help you learn what YOU want/need to know.
The classes will be in voice, but I will also have notes for you, which will be available at the beginning of class so you can write your own notes on them as well. 🙂
I will have hands-on examples for you to try, to play with, to explore – because I think having some hands-on is essential to learning, especially in SL.
I hope to teach you skills you can take to any venue on the grid, so that you can be as successful as you want to be.
Every troupe does things a little differently, but with the basic skills, you can be successful dancing anywhere.
The classes will be kept to an hour and only one session (as much as is possible), because I know that scheduling and availability is difficult for many.
There is no fee for any of the classes, though some of them require that you own specific equipment/tools.
If you’re an experienced dancer/performer and you have specific skills you’d like to acquire, PLEASE let me know!
I am still working on some advanced classes, so if you have an interest, I’d love to hear about it.
The basic series of classes starts on Sunday, October 4, at 2pm SLT at the Kat & Mouse Theater.
You can still sign up for classes – just head over to the K&M SOPA Class Listings page on the menu above.
See you in class!!!
