I am very excited to announce the course listings for the K&M School of Performing Arts for 2016!!
I have spent the last month working on curriculum, changing some things, adding some things – all based on feedback and reflection from previous classes.
I have updated the K&M Course Listings to reflect the changes in the courses. The basic topics/concepts covered in each course are listed. You can now choose from courses in Choreography, Movers, Set Building, Costuming, and Advanced Choreography.
In addition, I am adding courses for learning the Artiste. Currently registration is only open for the Intro to Artiste course. If you have or plan to take advantage of Yummy’s discount offer for a HUD/palette combo, then this is the course for you!
Courses will be held on Sundays at 12pm SLT at the Kat & Mouse Theater. There will be ‘homework’ for in-world skill assessments, as well as online assessments (assessments are not required). For students who choose to complete all assessments, the school will keep a posted list of dancers/students who have successfully completed courses and demonstrated mastery of various skills.
I have listed the dates/times for both the Intro to Artiste and Movers courses. The courses that will be taught following those will depend on interest.
I look forward to classes and hope to see you there!
The A-50, A-75, and A-100 are only guaranteed valid From December 1st, 2015 thru December 31st, 2015.
I am having to re-educate myself on some of the functions, because Yummy is constantly developing and adding to its capabilities. (Such a wonderful problem to have, right?!)
Once I have finished creating the curriculum, I will open registration for K&M SOPA classes, including those on the Artiste. I anticipate that will happen mid to late December, with the classes actually beginning in January 2016.
In addition to the Artiste classes, I will also again be offering courses on choreography, dance tools, set building, etc.
What new skills would you like to gain in the new year?
As many of you know, I have spent the last several weeks trying to learn a new system.
I was going to call it a HUD, but it’s really so much more than that.
The Artiste is a suite of products to help you, as a performer, do more.
Is it easy?
Is it fast?
Is it rewarding?
For me, this is a trailblazing product. With the tools provided in the Artiste suite of products, I now have so many more creative options at my disposal.
Things that, previously, I would have had to either purchase, beg, borrow, steal, or sleep with a scripter to get. 😛
I have spent the few weeks on a roller coaster – up when I was successful at something, and down again when things didn’t go right.
Sometimes the downs weren’t my fault, most times they were.
I persevered. Pure stubbornness. Refusal to give up.
Sometimes I would have to walk away.
But I always came back.
After finally completing a routine, I am so excited about the many tools I still have left to learn.
What I accomplished may not seem like much to some. I am so proud of this routine – because when I watch it, I see all the successes and failures, and how much I learned along the way.
Plus, I finally get to use these ADORABLE gingerbread avatars I got from the MadPea Scrumptious Sweets hunt. (Created by Chandra Meehan at deviousMind – the hunt is still on, so head over there and pick them up yourself. The HUD is $100L, but well worth the price, for these avatars alone!)
I hope you enjoy this little holiday routine as much as I do.
