About the Workshop

Our goal is to support you in creating lively, rich, and free performances.

Be prepared to work hard and play hard.

Terry will assign partners, and together, you and your partner will get to choose the material you want to work on together. 

For those interested in observing rather than participating, Terry offers the opportunity to audit the class. Students are also welcome to watch on non-working days at no extra cost. 

Students are welcome to watch on the days they are not working with no additional charge.
