* An email invitation to join the class group will be sent earlier before the class in plenty of time for you to

download the Zoom app and find our class. This app does not cost anything to use. 

1. Please warm yourself up well at home. Online classes may only include a moderate warm-up if any.

2. Be somewhere in your home where your internet connection is the strongest.

3.  Please find a private place to work. Class work is private and even online we should treat it that way without anyone else in your household listening in or viewing the work. Everyone is on the honor system to protect the privacy of your fellow students.

4. Please be without distractions. If you cannot do the class without interruptions, we recommend passing on it, or if you have an obligation in your home like a child or loved one, just log off the class midway if necessary. Parents who wish to be close by, please feel free while allowing sufficient privacy for your Teen to participate on their own.

IMPORTANT RULE:

* Our same rules regarding privacy we adhere to inside the studio apply online and we do not want any of what we are working on to be posted online or shown to anyone who is not in class. Please refrain from screen shots or recording of our session.

Below are scenes and characters you have been assigned. You may have been assigned a character not of your gender. Play the character as your own gender.

Some of you were assigned more than one character. Please prepare both.

In class you will be paired or put in groups to work pieces. If you are someone who has been assigned two characters, you may need to hop in and out of groups to accomplish both. You may not end up doing both depending on class attendance.

If anyone wants to rehearse before class, I recommend it. Reach out to each other to work the scenes. If you want each other's emails, please reach out to me as soon as possible. IF YOU DO NOT WANT ME TO GIVE OUT YOUR EMAIL, LET ME KNOW!!

We won't know until class who you will actually do your scenes with. It will depend on attendance. However if you rehearsed together prior to class, we will make sure those of you who did, get to work together in class as well.
