Northampton Center for the Arts
The day will feature classes, workshops, and performances for artists and arts lovers of all ages. There will be free theatrical previews, behind-the-scenes dance rehearsals, free introductory classes, and more!
The day also provides a fantastic opportunity for all to look over the new spaces that have opened up on Hawley Street, particularly The Flex, a space designed to hold extraordinary events of all kinds! Community members are invited to discover the Center’s offerings and consider opportunities to teach a class or stage a show.
The lineup of events includes dance: an open rehearsal by Lisa Leizman dance and an open class by Program Director’s Kelly Silliman. You can also take a tango lesson with Western Mass Tango or an advanced dance class with Fritha Pengelly. Two theater companies offer previews of their shows: Shakespeare Stage’s Twelfth Night, and Real Live Theater’s next show. There will be workshops in Alexander Technique by Abbie Steiner, theatrical training by RLT, and a sample of “sacred rage” by Rhythea Lee. Kelly Silliman will present a workshop and videos showing off ArtPlay, her great vacation program. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view David Andrew’s art in the Downstairs Gallery.
Admission is free
