From the New Hazlett Theater:

566215_theater_2The New Hazlett Theater strives to engage artists, youth, adults and the community, as we incubate talent, cultivate the arts and provide a venue for world class cultural events. With this in mind, we are proud to announce our first Summer Arts Intensive for youth ages 8 – 12 led by Pittsburgh’s finest teaching artists. Participants can choose from Theater Arts, Dance and Creative Movement or Songwriter focused workshops.

Theater Arts
Instructor: JaSonta Roberts Deen
Places everyone! Acting and movement students delve deep into the dramatic arts with a focus on a variety of theater arts, acting styles, audition skills, and movement. The workshop drives them to develop professional skills and produce a sophisticated piece culminating in a final performance.

Dance and Creative Movement
Instructors: Gabe “Kg” Ash, Desiree Davis, Kaylin Horgan and more to be announced
The curriculum offers students a variety of classes, workshops and demonstrations in dance genres from contemporary to traditional allowing participants to reach above and beyond what they would normally experience in the dance studio.. The final performance gives students an opportunity to experience what it is like to dance on a large stage with the lights and sounds of a professional show.

Songwriter Workshop
Instructor: Skip Sanders
Those who play an instrument or like to sing will enjoy this one-of-a-kind songwriting workshop. As students work on their instrumental and storytelling skills, they will create a portfolio of ideas and lyrics for new songs.
