Adult Performing Arts

Time to mark off your bucket list, take a risk, be creative, and do that thing you have always wanted to do!

Whether you are a seasoned actor or a beginner, you will enjoy what performing arts can offer!

Understanding that the performing arts helps develop artistic and life skills, self-image, and social commitment, DAC Theatre’s adult performing art workshops offer a platform to explore not only theatre skills, but also personal and professional development through theory, method, movement and expression.

In addition to workshop fees, DAC adult workshops are supported by:

Fall 2017 Workshops

Acting in the Boxes

Saturday, October 14 | 10am – 12:30pm
with Mona Wood-Patterson
$32 DAC Members / $36 General

Using the Rasabox technique, Mona Wood-Patterson (Director, Merely Players Theatre Co.) will coach actors through an exciting technique which helps them access and move through emotions. This is one of Mona’s most popular classes and is appropriate for actors at all levels. Become an athlete of the heart!


The Art of Storytelling

Saturday, November 18 | 10am – 2:30pm (bring a lunch!)
with Sarah Syverson and Tom Yoder
$50 DAC Members / $56 General

Explore storytelling techniques including creating compelling story arcs, developing your story through the five senses, and finding your own authentic voice. All that is required is a pen, paper, and a willingness to share a true story from your own life. You will leave with a story in hand to share with others (perhaps for the next Raven Narratives: Live Storytelling Event!).
