SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER with Anthony King
As the philosopher Daft Punk once said, "Work is never over." In this workshop we'll take the skills you already have and work to make them simpler, more effective and more fun to use so you can cut through the clutter, get out of your own way, and build amazing scenes with your fellow performers. In other words, "Work it harder, make it better."
DISCLAIMER: Anthony is not really a big fan of Daft Punk. He had to do a google lyric search to write this description.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THESE DCM WORKSHOPS. READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING AND ENROLLING!
Maximum class size is 16.
* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer in a group from out of town to enroll. The registrar will check for your name and if you are not listed when you enroll, you will be removed from the workshop and lose $50.
