NEW Footlights Theatre Arts

Footlights at Portledge offers a week of intensive immersion for older theater students. Join us August 6-11 for performing arts classes and seminars headed by Broadway actress Courtney Balan, a veteran of five Broadway shows including FINDING NEVERLAND and FALSETTOS.

Classes range from musical theatre to straight acting taught by Courtney with special guest artists from the Broadway community. Classes include scene study, audition technique, book building, how to act a song, and the business of show business.

In addition, choreography seminars will be taught by some of Broadway’s best dancers, recreating scenes from current Broadway shows, and culminating in a showcase at the end of the week. Footlights is an intensive program that gives you the actual feel of what it takes to be a professional actor. Please visit www.footlightsatportledge. for more information about us.
