Drop in as much as you're able, anytime!  Pay what you can!  ($15 suggested)

Join Theatre Y for ongoing physical training sessions aiming to foster community in an 'actor's playground.'    The training is for all who practice 'a beginner's mind.'

Based in the work of Tadashi Suzuki, Shogo Ohta, and Pacific Performance Project/East, this training helps the actor by engaging in body and imagination as one. With influences including Samurai warrior conditioning, modern dance, Alexander technique among many others, the process brings the expansive imagination of the American actor into their full body, starting from the feet.

The practice asks the actor to find stability when thrown off balance, breath when physically challenged, precision, and strength all through the lens of performance. Training utilizes formal sequence or kata, improvisation, music, text, and time.

Aspects of training include formal sequences (katas), Slow Tempo, Ki training, and less structured movement narratives

Dress in clothes to move in, Tabi or durable socks
