Hotel Block Information

Our hope for this event is to offer a day of different tracks of classes across the variety of Performing Arts, including:

  • Commedia,
  • Foolery,
  • Theater,
  • Physical Theater (juggling, miming, mumming…)
  • European Music (vocal and instrumental),
  • Bardic (songs, story, poetry, word-smithing)
  • General Performing Arts (techniques, organizing, etc.),
  • and more!

‘How to’ classes, as well as ‘history/appreciation’ classes, would be welcome. Also open to panel/forum and discussion style classes.

Depending on space, and who signs up as teachers- we’re very much hoping to get a strong variety of classes. And range from things that will appeal to newcomers to the performance arts, as well provide classes that would be interesting to those who have been participating in their chosen art for a while.

At this time, the plan is to have class tracks run from around 10a – 4p, followed by a 2-ish hour mixed performance concert towards the end of the day. (Final details on timing, and selection for the concert part – TBA.)

A Performing Arts Post Revel is also in early planning stages; which will hopefully offer more chances for folks to perform and watch fellow performers.

To volunteer to teach a class, please contact Mistress Lorelei Skye and/or THL Niccolo Bartolazzi.
