Join us in bidding the fondest of farewells to a truly remarkable, unique and unforgettable improviser, Rebecca Poretsky.

    This class includes lessons on physicality and using the frame, emotional animation, ensemble storytelling and music. Students are encouraged to have their own hand/rod puppet (Puppet with rods attached to each hand) but if not, a simple puppet with only the mouth will be enough to get a ton out of the class experience! Puppetry for Storytelling is an 8 week class starting on September 8th from 7 - 9PM PST. Join us in learning to breathe life into your characters with a focus on emotional animation.
